There’s a new line of luxury fixtures and faucets in town: DXV by American Standard, which includes more than 70 pieces in a range of styles spanning the decades and presented in four movements: Classic (1880 to 1920), Golden Era (1920 to 1950), Modern (1950 to 1990), and Contemporary (1990 to today). Each contains bathroom fixture suites–freestanding tubs, toilets, sinks, and lavatories, as well as complementary faucet collections that reimagine and reinterpret historic designs.

How to choose? That’s where the DXV Design Panel comes in. American Standard assembled a group of notable designers to create rooms showcasing their products. Here are our top picks. 

Above: Not surprisingly our favorites in the DXV by American Standard fixture collections are white (specifically DXV’s Canvas White). Designer Mary Douglas Drysdale’s inspiration bathroom features a mini-library (and toilet paper storage spot). 

Above: “As a bathroom designer, I have been asked a hundred times where the magazines and reading materials could be stored,” says Drysdale. “This bathroom offers a wall of shelves that can be used for books.” The Seagram One-Piece Elongated Toilet is perfectly proportioned for smaller spaces; the high-efficiency toilet in canvas white is $895. 

Above: In the same bathroom, the designer mixes two pieces from the DXV Golden Era Collection: the Pop Round Bathroom Vessel Sink ($425) and the Randall Vessel Faucet in polished chrome ($605).

Above: A serene room by designer Cheryl Kees Clendenon is devoted solely to bathing. She chose the Fitzgerald Freestanding Soaking Tub in canvas white ($5,550) and the Traditional Floor-Mount Bathtub Faucet with Landfair Cross Handles ($2,225). 

Above: Designer Corey Klassen outfitted an airy loft bath with clean-lined DXV by American Standard fixtures and fittings. The St. George Freestanding Soaking Tub in canvas white ($5,250) is the focal point. The bath and shower fittings are from the DXV classic Landfair Collection

Above: Klassen also equipped the loft bath with the Fitzgerald Two-Piece Elongated Toilet ($760) and Fitzgerald Bidet ($495), both from the DXV Golden Era Collection.
