Distinctive Design Aesthetics
Step into the world of the London Basin Company, and you’ll discover a harmonious blend of classic elegance and contemporary flair. Founded by interior designer Anna and her daughter, Nathalie, The London Basin Company, draws inspiration from antique china, fabric archives, wallpaper, historic items, and treasures they found during their travels. Specialising in bathroom products, the company’s design aesthetic captures the beautiful essence of The Far East and beyond. From basins designed in sunrise orange emblazoned with floral motifs in vivid reds, blues and greens inspired by Oriental designs to the highest quality Bohemian Crystal basins reflective of the Renaissance period, the products are not just functional pieces but expressions of design identity.
At the core of the London Basin Company’s offerings lies an unwavering commitment to exquisite craftsmanship. Every basin, and fixture is a testament to meticulous detail and enduring craftsmanship. Skilled artisans hand throw each basin out of the finest porcelain before pressing, polishing, trimming, drying, and smoothing it to complete perfection.
The basins are then elaborately decorated using a wide range of methods, from hand-painting to engraving. To ensure maximum durability, it is then burned at temperatures of up to 1,300 degrees, often multiple times. This means that the surface of the porcelain basins are incredibly tough and robust, making them suitable for daily use. More than functional elements, these pieces are works of art, reflecting the company’s dedication to preserving the timeless tradition of craftsmanship.

This storytelling element adds a layer of depth and character to the functional aspects of their offerings, creating a meaningful connection between the user and the rich history and art that has inspired each piece.
In every basin and sink, the London Basin Company unfolds a design odyssey—a journey through time, style, and innovation that invites individuals to bring a piece of vibrant cultural spirit into their own living spaces.
