[dropcap]A[/dropcap] beautiful new bathroom in a Riverside Drive penthouse has all the hallmarks of contemporary design. The look was created by interior designer Laurel S. Wilson. Certified kitchen and bath designer Ralph Lackner, president and owner of Jay Rambo Co., designed the cabinetry for a bathroom that is sleek, upscale and dramatic.

“The project was challenging. There are areas of the building that impede the ease of plumbing installations or making structural changes,” says Jenny Harris, assistant to Lackner. The bathroom’s beauty outweighs those difficulties.

“The cabinetry is European frameless style with a vertical grain high-gloss lacquer finish,” Jenny says. “It’s beautiful and easy to clean.”

Twin vanities feature smooth Copenhagen granite countertops. Hansgrohe chrome fixtures enhance the modern theme. The corner shower walls and the tub’s front are covered with 4-inch by 16-inch silhouette gloss glass tile from Visions Tile & Stone. The shower includes body sprays and a large rainhead. A towel warmer is a much-appreciated accessory.

The vanities are enhanced with contemporary light fixtures, mounted in the mirrors, which extend to the ceiling. Bathroom functions are relaxing and enjoyable in this luxurious setting.
