Fantini shower fixtures include a ceiling-mounted rain showerhead and a chrome hand shower with thermostatic controls. Porcelain tile from Architessa clads the walls. The Artelinea vanity combines matte-glass door fronts and a frosted-glass top that integrates polished-glass sink bowls.

Statement in Stone

A dramatic quartzite wall enhances a minimalist primary bath


Initially, the owners of a gracious Kalorama condo simply wanted to bid adieu to an outdated whirlpool tub in their primary bath. But a consultation with Jonas Carnemark of KONST Union led to a broader discussion—and soon plans for a total overhaul unfolded. Carnemark and his clients envisioned a serene, modern space with a frameless shower taking center stage. White porcelain floor and wall tile creates a quiet backdrop for a massive slab of quartzite from Gramaco, installed as an organic focal point in the shower. A floating double vanity occupies the facing wall. Its silky, matte-glass top flows into glossy, integrated sinks and hovers above spacious drawers with matching gray glass fronts. Wall-mounted chrome faucets and a custom backlit mirror complete the minimalist tableau.

"Refined and restrained with judiciously chosen materials.”
