Drummonds was founded in 1988 by Drummon Shaw, who at the time was restoring his period house and was finding it difficult to source authentic architectural antiques.
The roots of Drummonds are deep in craft and design heritage, reaching far beyond our 30 years as makers of bathrooms.
A guide to our unique natural finishes and how to care for them for bathrooms that will last generations.
Designed by Martin Brudnizki for Drummonds as part of their ongoing collaboration, the cast iron Wandle bath is his new look at a traditional form. Ergonomically designed around the human form, the sloping end is the same width from top to bottom, to accommodate shoulders, and has the ideal slope to allow the head to rest comfortably.
The perfect bath for restful reading or soaking, the Wandle comes with either a skirt, which brings the bath lower to the floor with a more modern feel or with feet, giving a classic look. The industrial aesthetic of the feet is inspired by iron beams in a Victorian pump house, whilst the skirt echoes the bulbous bow of a ship. As with all Drummonds’ cast iron baths, each Wandle takes several weeks to make, in a traditional process involving casting the raw metal, shot-blasting and enamelling with the lengthy dry-frit process which gives a snow white, incredibly durable enamel surface. The exterior can be painted, primed or polished to order.
