Bathroom Accessories

Loo Brush by Iris Hantverk

Ah, let’s talk about the loo (toilet) brush. I recently moved, and the past week I’ve been running around getting all the home necessities for our house, and when I say all, I mean all (our stuff is in transit via sea freight, not to arrive for another two or three weeks, so it’s a start-from-scratch situation). Which brings me to the subject of bathroom accessories. There’s a sad selection on the local suppliers’ shelves. I want more natural materials, not shiny-80s-bachelor-pad crap and definitely not plasticky crud. If it’s on view and not in the cupboard, I want something pleasant to look at. Hell, even if it’s in the cupboard, I want something pleasant to look at.

So, check out this toilet brush. Made from birchwood and soft concrete, it’s a nice little thing to do a rather dirty job, which makes that job just a tiny bit better. While semi-expensive at £35, it’s certainly not crazy expensive like the Vipp Toilet Brush ($200). I certainly regret not buying a couple of these before leaving the UK. Also, I found two other completely decent ones (via Remodelista), but they’re also from the UK. Blargh. See below for links.

Izola Soap Dishes

Soap dishes aren’t the most important things, I know, but these caught my eye. The Scout Soap Dish states ‘I PLEDGE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE, TO BE TRUE AND BRAVE’ which is a rather nice reminder, don’t you think?

PAON Bath Collection by Kazuhiko Tomita

The Paon Bath Collection is designed based on “the influence of a herd of elephants.”

A statement from the designer: “it is quite friendly and spiritual to hold these smoothly curved noses of elephants in porcelain. the low level of vital force could be activated by drinking divine water from the [mug]. any moment in any bathroom becomes more ritual by contacting with them directly.”

The entire herd is made up by the following:

* mug
* toothbrush holder
* soap dish
* containers with lids (3 sizes)
* wall hooks (2 sizes)
