Transitional was deemed the most popular bathroom and kitchen style trend of 2016 so far, with designs that have been decidedly linear, neutrally toned, and hyper-focused on textural details. These five products showcase the current style’s best qualities with subdued color palettes, wood accents, metallic finishes, and subtle textures.


Dressage Free-Standing Vanity, Graff
A sawhorse base in solid walnut adds artisanal appeal to this compact vanity, which can be specified with an array of functional modules, including a washbasin, shelf, tray, towel hook, rotatable mirror, and soft-close drawers. Offered with DuPont Corian surfacing.


Petal Decorative Drain, Rohl
Geometric patterning on these flush-mounted, solid brass decorative drain covers adds a touch of detail to shower floors. Petal (shown) is one of four new, 5"-square designs. Finishes include polished chrome and nickel, brass, and bronze.

Ann Sacks

Liaison, Ann Sacks
Enliven bath and shower walls with these striking geometric marble mosaics. By Los Angeles–based designer Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks, Liaison is offered in eight semi-custom shapes, sizes, and patterns (Canon Small in charcoal blend, shown).


Litze, Brizo
Bauhaus-inspired forms and accents like teak wood and textural knurling elevate this collection of bath fixtures and fittings whose name, Litze (“braid” in German), speaks to its subtle details. Available in chrome, nickel, and gold finishes.


Cerclo, Inbani
The edges of Cerclo, one of three new Corian sinks from the Spanish bath manufacturer, measure just 12mm thick. The oval, rectangular, and circular (shown) units can be top- or undermounted and specified with a matching valve. Finished in matte white.
