Luxury Bathrooms for Luxurious Lifestyles
Unless you are a complete, dedicated ascetic, (and they aren’t in the majority), you appreciate, love and possibly desire life’s luxuries, like most other people, who are a pretty aspirational bunch anyway.
Aspiration and inspiration are admirable qualities. This is how mankind invents, evolves and advances. Without finding better or more pleasing ways of doing things, human beings, as a species, would have died out very long ago. Instead, man has developed, grown and become more discerning and sophisticated.
What is Luxury?
Luxury items may be described as those that possess qualities that may be considered non-essential over and above their primary function, and they’ve been refined to levels beyond their original purpose.
This may apply to any and everything from mattresses to motor cars, fridges to foods, and babies’ nappies to bathrooms. Luxury bathroom appointments (and other luxury goods) are normally supplied by specialised luxury stores, such as OXO Bathrooms in Lonehill, Johannesburg.
We have the exclusive distribution rights to supply all of OXO’s Italian imported, exclusive sanitary ware in South Africa today.
From Function to Opulence
Bathrooms were functional spaces, but they didn’t exist not too terribly long ago. Once indoor plumbing was invented, a separate room in the house was designated as a bathroom, but purely for simple, functional reasons, allowing occupants to perform ablutions in privacy.
Modern bathrooms have ceased to be mere washrooms. Today, the bathroom is a sanctuary, a haven of peace, tranquillity and relaxation, enjoyable experiences enhanced by a touch of opulence.

You’ll find everything you need at OXO Bathrooms – all luxurious, breathtaking, Italian-designed sanitary ware.
- Baths – numerous models of superior structure, weighing between 70kg – 130kg, consisting of three layers of acrylic material fused into one solid structure with no areas where lime scale and stains may accumulate.
