Ferguson Supports 58th Annual Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts Fundraiser
Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery has announced its ongoing vendor sponsorship in the Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts (PSHA), marking its seventh year in the fundraising initiative. Open through May 21, the 58th showcase house will be held in Stewart House, a 1933 grand colonial estate designed by Marston & Maybury.
For the 2023 showcase, Ferguson has provided appliances, lighting fixtures and plumbing fittings to display and decorate the house’s primary bedroom terrace, two baths, pool lounge and dressing area, and guesthouse bedroom and bath.
Supporting six acclaimed design studios, Ferguson provided products for Ashley Marie Design (“Children’s Retreat” bedroom/bath), Meredith Green Designs LLC (primary bedroom terrace), Billman Designs (powder room), RD Design Studio (dining room and butler’s pantry), the Art of Room Design (“Garden Retreat” bedroom/bath in the guesthouse), and The Studio For (pool room lounge and changing area).
“Year after year, The Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts gives Ferguson the wonderful opportunity to support leaders in our design community and introduce our services to designers who showcase our brand offerings to perfection,” says Alison Crowley, showroom manager for Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery Pasadena. “It elevates what everyone in the design community aspires to achieve.”
Now in her tenth year with the Pasadena Showcase, principal designer and owner of The Art of Room Design, Maria Videla-Juniel has chosen a room inside the guest house, which has been reimagined as “The Garden Retreat.” Wallpaper featuring a formal garden (Anna French by Thibault) is contrasted with a view of the estate’s garden, framed by French windows. Videla-Juniel kept things deceptively simple in the adjacent bathroom, employing Kohler products from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. Videla-Juniel features Kohler’s Purist black bath fixtures collection that combines Deco utility with cutting-edge technology. A retro-looking, 18-inch hanging pendant light nods to the Stewart House’s 1933 pedigree, while the elegance of Kohler’s Veil white porcelain dual flush one-piece Intelligent Toilet bridges time.
Pasadena-based designer, Karen Billman of Billman Designs also designed a bathroom – this time a powder room in the Stewart House. With Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery products Billman has created a European ambiance with fanciful silver Alexandria double handle widespread lavatory faucet (Newport Brass), a silver-framed Braewood Decorative Vanity Mirror (Signature Hardware) and a white porcelain Key West two-piece elongated toilet (Signature Hardware). The color palette is set with Dunn-Edwards Classic White and Deepest Sea.
For the Stewart House’s formal dining room, Glendale-based designer Rachel Duarte has enrobed the walls with Dunn-Edwards’ Italian Basil (which she describes as “moody, rich, deep”) while retaining the room’s original mural panels. In tune with the “clubbiness” of the dining space, Duarte added from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery a single-hole bar faucet with a brass-finished spigot and black-finished tap from Kohler’s Tone Collection, complimenting a black granite Franke Quantum drop-in undermount single basin sink.
Ashley Marie O’Connell, principal and owner of Ashley Marie Design, repurposed a bedroom as a children’s retreat. A serious challenge involved converting an adjacent bathroom with an overwhelming display of black and orange marble into something child-friendly and whimsical. O’Connell chose a suite of Signature hardware fixtures from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, including a Stella widespread bathroom faucet with pop-up drain assembly coordinated with an Eastcott console sink with a traditional top and a Sauma octagonal framed bathroom mirror. These products were set against a green, white and neutral tile palette. A Nassau flush mount drum ceiling light underpins the geometry of the materials. Other renovations included a white porcelain Key West two-piece elongated toilet, a Cooper thermostatic shower system and an 8-3/4″ rainfall shower with a head and hand shower.
The private lanai of the Stewart House’s primary bedroom includes panoramic views of the garden; Meredith Green of Meredith Green Designs enhanced the space without detracting attention from the prospect. From Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, Green incorporated Capital Lighting’s Cecilia 24-inch-wide pendant and Varaluz’s Banana Leaf 35-inch chandelier into her vision.
In her design for the Stewart House pool dressing area and lounge, Stephanie Leese, principal designer at The Studio For, used from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery multiple flush mount lights, including a Minka Lavery 20-inch LED drum, a Millennium Lighting 14-inch square, and Signature Hardware’s Spotswood 17-inch drum. Signature Hardware’s Merrick 15-inch drop-in single basin copper kitchen sink further enhances the materials in the area.
