On Trend: Vintage Soap Dishes

Happy New Year! We were thrilled to see that the hugely popular blog, Remodelista, included vintage soap dishes in its New Year’s roundup of trends on the horizon for 2015. “It’s not a trend yet,” the post said, “but we hope it catches on.” The photo included with the post showed soap dishes from a source in Paris—but we’ve got them right here at home:

Some of our customers are already clued in to this trend: The following soap dishes have already sold (the final image in this group is a sponge holder, but works well for either purpose):

One of our customers has already caught on to this trend -- this vintage beauty just sold.
The fixture above the soap dish is designed to hold a cup.

Nothing gives a room instant warmth and personality than the addition of vintage elements, which take the edge off everything shiny and new that surround them. This is especially true when you talk bathroom hardware and accessories, since bathrooms tend to get cold with all their hard surfaces.

Here are some other examples of vintage bath accessories currently in stock, including towel bars, toilet-roll holders, cup holders, robe hooks, lighting—even a complete shower system!

We don't normally stock plumbing supplies, but this needlehead shower head, with drain pan and shower curtain frame, was too good to pass up.

Vintage chrome-plated brass cup holder

 

The top section is a cup holder, but one of our customers who bought something similar reports that it's the perfect size to hold a liquid--soap pump bottle.
