Steal This Look: Black and White Shower in Finland

Issue 2 · Salle de Bain · January 10, 2012

Discovered via Design Skool, an appealingly retro Scandi shower from Lundagård, an 1860s timbered house in Finland.

Aja and Christian, the owners of Lundagård, disassembled and rebuilt the house fifty miles from the original location and renovated the home themselves. We especially like the minimal and well-considered shower, which features antique fittings and locally sourced materials. For more on the project, go to Design Skool.

Black faucet and curtain rods

Above: Christian made the black shower curtain rod from old metal fittings; the ceiling is lined with wood sourced from the surrounding forest, protected with a coat of white linseed-oil paint. The ceramic tiles are from Finnish company Pukkila.

Tara Black Edition Wall-Mounted Shower Mixer
