The History of KOHLER

The Kohler Headquarters, shown above is located in Kohler, Wisconsin.  The company was founded in 1873 by Austrian immigrant John Michael Kohler. Early products included cast iron and steel farm implements, castings for furniture factories, and ornamental iron pieces. In 1883, enamel was applied to cast iron to create the companies first bathtub. – Wiki

KOHLER products are recognized for both beautiful form and reliable function.

In 1888, Kohler trademarked the “Bubbler”. Other companies then began to follow the lead by developing similar products under the generic name “drinking fountain”.  Today the Bubbler continues to be part of Wisconsin’s vernacular.

The Fox Jewelers Building on Monroe Center is being renovated into a boutique hotel by the owner of the CityFlats hotel.  The hotel will be LEEDS certified, just as the Cityflats hotels is.  No two rooms will be alike, which is one of my favourite features of the Cityflats Hotel in Holland.

Here are some more photos of my recent visit to the Cityflats hotel, to get you as enthusiastic about the project as I am!

The walk in shower in our room was simplistic, featuring a fabulous rain head.  The provided bath products were energizing and all natural.

These bathroom features shown above may inspire you to get started on that bathroom makeover that you have been longing for…

This room made great use of the hot accent colour, turquoise.  The inserts of glass concealed the lights and created a very soft, relaxed atmosphere.

Cork flooring was used throughout the room, paired with a desk/dresser constructed of Bamboo.

The glass tile in the Guest Bathroom is shown here in cherry blossom, beach sand and mocha.  Also shown is a section of the Kitchen featuring a Sub Zero fridge disguised with custom paneling so that it relates to the cabinets throughout the kitchen.

The Black Bathroom • Simply Beautiful

Simply Beautiful is a range of taps manufactured by Zucchetti. They were used to create this bathroom with completely black walls. White basin and bath, chromed taps and black surroundings make the bathroom very contrasted and moody. This bathroom would need a lot of light, however makes a very clean, modern statement.
