Creating a harmonious bathroom space with precisely crafted fixtures and fittings

The Gareth Ashton Vela Bathroom Collection will transform your bathroom into a sanctuary of grace, serenity and purification.

A well-designed, minimalist bathroom provides a soothing contrast to our often-hectic lifestyles.  The allure of a minimalist bathroom is that it facilitates mental decluttering as well, giving us the clarity and positivity we need to start the day.

Simplicity is a timeless trend that is expected to remain popular in bathroom designs throughout 2024, particularly in tapware, showers and bathroom accessories. Clean lines, refined finishes and streamlined shapes all help create a sense of calm and sophistication.

Gareth Ashton, an Abey Australia brand, brings together these design elements to create pieces that perfectly complement modern spaces. Possessing styled minimalism and sleek lines, the Vela Bathroom Collection will turn your bathroom into a thoughtfully curated sanctuary for peace and relaxation.

Manufactured from low-lead brass, the Vela collection features a range of tapware, basins, toilets, shower and bathroom accessories. The collection is characterised by its balance of organic and angular shapes, which is complemented by a variety of finishes, including Chrome, Black, Brushed Nickel, Brushed Brass and Gun Metal.

Each piece in the collection is designed to work harmoniously together. The streamlined profile of the Vela basin mixer matches the distinctive look of the Vela wall set, which is further complemented by Vela towel rails, robe hooks and towel roll holders. Along with the range of on-trend colours and finishes available, the Vela collection enables designers to create cohesive bathroom designs that exude a sense of understated elegance.

Abey Australia has been a household name in quality and innovation for more than 60 years, introducing cutting-edge design and technology to the Australian market. Their range of over 3500 products is the result of continuous product development, with an emphasis on providing innovative, high-quality solutions for modern kitchens and bathrooms.

As demonstrated by the Gareth Ashton Vela collection, Abey pride themselves in offering products that push the limits of design. Their ability to provide a comprehensive kitchen and bathroom package that complements all styles has made them well-known among designers and architects. In the Australian kitchen and bathroom industry, Abey has emerged as the go-to company for the best European design and innovation.
