Austrian Alps Style: Larsen Collection by Waterworks
Over Memorial Day weekend I was high up in the Austrian Alps at a beautiful lodge that lends itself to hiking the nearby peaks near Zell am See. While we anticipated a rustic style, the family who has owned the Taxhof cabins and main house for 400 years had an eye for combining high quality modern pieces with natural wood, making for the most comfortable mountain dwelling imaginable. Recently, the bathroom manufacturer, Waterworks, introduced their new Larsen Collection – among numerous other new collections – that incorporates the same, natural-turned-modern idea into their bathroom basin and console design.

Simplicity of Rustic Modern in the Larsen Bathroom Collection
Just like my favorite bathroom at Taxhof, which was located off of the main lodge dining hall (and yes, I realize it sounds peculiar having a favorite bathroom), the chunky white Larsen sink is cut with clean lines and placed atop a rather outdoorsy base.
In two different sizes, the Larsen wood four-leg single console has either a normal 23-3/4″ width or a wider set 39-5/8″ width. Each of the two versions measure 18-1/2″ deep and have a height of 28-1/2″. The Larsen rectangular deck-mounted porcelain lavatory basins themselves are “meant for high durability of material as well as finish” and can come in three hole or one hole faucet configurations. In two different sizes, they measure 23-3/4″ x 18-1/2″ x 6″ and 40″ x 18-1/2″ x 6″ to match their walnut stand below.
Similar to the way I’d describe the Taxhof style in Austria, the Waterworks’ Larsen Collection is described as a “comfortable, casual and coastal” collection that consists of a that “creates a feeling of warmth and welcome” together with their “focal point of solid practicality and clean, open lines”.
