Manufacturers of high-end plumbing fixtures and accessories, announced that they have contracted with world renowned designer, Jamie Drake, to design and develop a new plumbing fixture collection in collaboration with THG. The new collection is scheduled to debut in the third quarter of 2006.

The concept to develop a new collection for THG by an American designer came to Jerry Abel, Managing Director of THG USA, in 2004. “We were looking for someone who could incorporate a bold and strikingly fresh approach to the bath… and who could create something exciting in design, and inviting in terms of style; Jamie was the ideal choice. With his eclectic style and imaginative use of materials, Jamie is sure to create an unforgettable collection,” explains Jerry Abel.

Borrowing elements from fashion, cinema, live theatre and music, Drake’s interiors spark visual interest and intrigue. “Color, color and more dynamic color” is a credo that is the lifeblood of Drake Design Associates. Drake’s penchant for bold interiors spans both state-of-the-moment city dwellings to a pared down sensibility meeting the more low-key requirements of family retreats. “The collections I am designing for THG are the central piece of my licensed bath wares. They will be launched at the same time as my line of tiles for Artistic Tile and bath accessories for Labrazel, enabling the designer and client to have a completely coordinated Jamie Drake glamour bathroom,” says Jamie Drake.

THG USA is the exclusive importer of luxury bath products from the House of Tetard-Haudiquez-Grisoni (THG) in Normandy, France. The THG collections comprise over 250,000 products, found in unique architectural residences, hotels, resorts, luxury yachts and royal palaces worldwide. Customers may visit one of 90 authorized THG designer showrooms across North America to choose from a selection of over 150 designs and 85 finishes.

It’s important, as Jean Cocteau once said, not to confuse seriousness with gravity. Jamie Drake, the New York-based designer, doesn’t. The man behind some of this country’s most dynamic, distinctive, and livable interiors knows how to create seriously delightful environments, to craft décor that is as right for a particular place as it is for the specific person or family occupying it. Equally comfortable in traditional and contemporary styles, he has a particular gift for making modern interiors friendly and enlivening traditional spaces with a fresh mix of contemporary elements.

Immediately upon his graduation from Parsons School of Design, Jamie Drake launched Drake Design Associates. Since then, Jamie has been awarded several professional honors, including his 2003 induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame and the 2000 D & D Designers of Distinction Award. His publications are numerous, and include recent stories in Architectural Digest and Metropolitan Home, and cover stories in French Architectural Digest, Elle Décor and House Beautiful.
