Awesome Auction by DXV and A Special Sample Sale!

For the past two years, DXV by American Standard has selected a panel of design professionals to create inspiring design concepts using DXV luxury bathroom fittings and fixtures. As you know if you read my blog, I was among the seven selected this year and challenged to create a bath or kitchen design concept drawing on the DXV portfolio of products.  The book I chose as my inspiration for the bathroom I designed was Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffanys."  There were other famous books represented in the bathroom vignettes such as Cloth and Kind's Like Water for Elephants, Regina Storck's Anna Karenina, Justin Saulis's and The Kitchen Network's Like Water for Chocolate.  Each designer drew inspiration from these famous works of literature to create bathrooms.  We used the beautiful DXV products as the anchor for our creations but added other luxurious furnishings to the room.  There were some fabulous items used to create the bathrooms.

DXV is offering a selection of these products for auction with proceeds being donated to Reach Out and Read (www.reachoutandread.org ) a national nonprofit organization that works through the pediatric healthcare system to prescribe books and reading aloud to foster language-rich interactions between parents and their young children.

Remember the pair of chic Danish Modern chairs I used in the bathroom I designed for DXV?  They are currently on the auction block and can be yours!  Did you see the gorgeous screen Cloth and Kind created?  Fabulous!  Start bidding now, before it is too late!
I must admit that my chairs have a tiny little issue due to the way the upholsterer applied the trim, but regardless of that, they are a great pair of chairs.  Reupholster in any fabric or enjoy as is.  No one would notice the bloop because the sexy lines of the chairs steal the show.  I must admit I wish they were coming home to mama!

The auction will run from June 16th at 8 am through June 19th at 5 pm!
