TREND-SETTING Caroma are a brand that is synonymous with quality and style, but the clever, design-savvy team have now stepped it up another notch, taking their on trend bathroomware to the next level with the opening of their flagship Adelaide-based design hub. The space was designed by leading Australian architect, and author of Your Best Home, Joe Snell and it features six life-size capsules. Each capsule has been curated by a different Australian designer, including furniture designer Mark Tuckey (pictured), interior designer Alice Catford, Adelaide super-renovators Carly Schulz and Leighton Brow (winners of the first series of House Rules and runners up on Reno Rumble), the team from Outdoors on Parade, as well as Caroma in-house designers Nathalie Rivet and Leonie Brickwood. “It’s a collaboration of ideas and talent,” says Joe, “which encourages the consumer to consider styles they may not have thought of previously.” For the designers, the brief was ‘the sky's the limit’ – and in line with designer Mark Tuckey’s furniture ethos, he designed a capsule he describes as “calm and friendly”.
