PISCATAWAY, N.J. (June 4, 2015) ― Blending the charming, rustic details of traditional American farmhouse design with modern conveniences and sensibilities, the new Oak Hill suite of luxury bathroom fixtures from DXV by American Standard brings the beautiful simplicity of a pastoral lifestyle to today’s bathing sanctuary.
A celebration of timeless Americana spirit, this latest DXV collection provides an array of options for customizing a beautifully coordinated bathroom according to the user’s tastes and preferences. The Oak Hill offering includes a distinctive freestanding tub, a high-back lavatory with metal console or wood vanity, a stylish high efficiency toilet, a spread faucet for sink or wall-mount, plus a complementary wood-framed mirror to finish off the suite.
The Oak Hill collection represents an uplifting expansion of the DXV Classic Movement, a curated selection of kitchen and bath collections that celebrates turn-of-the-century American design blending fine art, decorative art and architectural styles, with intricately detailed highlights.
The focal point of the new collection is a lavishly-designed freestanding soaking tub in canvas white. This tub offers the option of a decorative skirted bottom or rustic feet to suit any bathroom décor, from classic to cutting edge. The classic high-back slipper tub shape exudes an aura of luxury from a bygone era, demanding to be noticed. Emulating authentic cast iron design, the Oak Hill tub showcases modern acrylic construction with a high gloss finish for lasting beauty. The footed tub model strikingly highlights the constrast of the contemporary bathtub styling with the provincial block feet supporting it. This stand-alone tub is designed for use with either floor or wall-mount tub fillers.
Oak Hill lavatories showcase a charming high back design with an integral front apron available in a variety of configurations. These delightfully authentic period sinks feature fine fire clay construction and are pre-drilled for a two-hole faucet spread.
The sleek 30-inch console lavatory with solid brass legs brings a clean, contemporary feeling to a turn-of-the-century classic design. For design flexibility, the console legs are available in a choice of four designer finishes: polished chrome, brushed nickel, platinum nickel, and satin brass.
To add storage space as well as a more rustic touch, the Oak Hill lavatory is also offered with a soft white oak wood vanity with vintage-inspired hardware or a weathered oak vanity with decorative tin panel doors that recalls classic farmhouse style. Both vanities feature a convenient storage shelf with a pull-out drawer.
A perfect complement to these antique-style sinks is the Oak Hill wall-mount spread faucet with clean, industrial articulations. Available in four designer finishes – polished chrome, brushed nickel, platinum nickel, and satin brass – the traditional two handle faucet is designed to be lavatory or wall mounted, as desired.
The distinctive Oak Hill faucet subtly fuses thoughtful styling with timeless utility and modern innovation. Featuring a cast brass spout with an external waterway and ceramic disc valve cartridges, this new faucet provides a lifetime of drip-free, worry-free performance. It delivers a 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) flow rate, which is a 32 percent water savings over standard models and meets stringent WaterSense-certification criteria from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Characterized by an elegantly curved tank, the high efficiency Oak Hill two-piece toilet (HET) features rich, historical detailing throughout its design. An exposed trapway and a quaint, decorative lift knob on top of the toilet tank lid lend an authentic period look, recalling the silhouette of an antique apothecary jar. Beneath its classic exterior, this HET is built to deliver a powerful flush while using just 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf), meeting the criteria for EPA WaterSense certification for providing high performance while using 20 percent less water than traditional 1.6 gpf toilets.
The Oak Hill toilet includes a design matched Duroplast slow-close seat and a comfortable Right Height (16 ½-inch) elongated bowl configuration that is ADA-compliant. For easy cleaning, this new toilet features EverClean, the unique permanent finish from American Standard that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface, helping the toilet stay cleaner, longer.
Rounding out this complete selection of attractive bath fixtures is an 18” x 30” mirror with coordinating wood frame available in a choice of white oak or weathered oak finishes.
The DXV Oak Hill collection is available through an exclusive network of American Standard showrooms and dealers across North America. For more information, visit www.dxv.com or call (800) 227-2734.
