Traditional Home Southern Style Now Designer Showhouse

The exquisite designs in the DXV collection proved to be perfect accompaniments to the gracious interiors shown at the Traditional Home Southern Style Now Designer Showhouse. Steeped in the rich history of Savannah, Georgia, this classic 1854 Greek Revival rowhouse was restored, revived and rejuvenated by renowned designers, honoring the past with the best of the present.


 

ENCHANTED KITCHEN – Designed by DXV Design Panelist 2015, Lisa Mende of Lisa Mende Design, Charlotte, North Carolina

True to her design sensibility, Lisa melds hospitality, history, and a hint of quirkiness with memorable results. Front and center in this inviting space is the slender, statuesque beauty of the DXV Victorian Bridge Faucet.  Painstakingly executed details are a testament to its timeless character and traditional heritage. Complementing the faucet is the DXV Hillside 30” Apron Sink, a period-perfect design that is right at home in this 19th century abode. Made of durable fine fireclay, this versatile style features a smooth front reversing to a more transitional panel front. Each DXV piece pays tribute to tradition while being firmly rooted in today.

MASTERFUL BATHROOM – Designed by Kevin Walsh of Bear Hill Interiors, Little Rock, Arkansas
