Making Room

While most of the emphasis at this week's Cersaie design fair in Bologna is on tile and ceramic fixtures, I'm impressed with a product that introduces textiles into the bathroom. [I do have a bit of a contrarian streak in me!] Making its debut at the show, 'Shade' is essentially a folding screen that can be fitted with fabric panels that play a decorative role in the room, as well as Corian inserts that supply shelves and hooks for storage needs. Mirrors can also be incorporated into the freestanding, flexible piece.
