Metropolis is a minimalist collection of bathroom furniture produced by Italian bathroom furniture manufacturer Lasa Idea. Founded in the 1970’s Lasa Idea originally specialised in the creation of mirrors and wooden bathroom accessories, however the company later expanded its offering by branching into the creation of bathroom furniture.
The modular Metroplis collection features a variety units, which are available in 40 standard matt or gloss lacquered colours as well as all the RAL lacquer shades. There is also a choice of 20 different wood finishes.
The range features a number of container elements including deep drawers and baskets, which help to optimize and organize the storage space.
The range itself is inspired by modern architecture and urban landscapes. The minimalist, monochromatic bathroom is comprised of hard lines and sharp angles which are then softened by the ergonomic lines of the sanitaryware.
What do you think? Is this a heavenly combination of minimalism and monochromatic delight? Or do you think it is too cold and clinical? We’d love your feedback so let us know.

Now it’s my turn to share some Decoist design advice with you! First up, we see a grouping of small items displayed on the DIY Round Shelf I created for a previous Decoist post. When deciding what to display, avoid overcrowding your shelf in terms of weight and height. For a small round shelf like the one displayed in the two images below, lightweight items are essential. Plus, smaller items allow the shape of the shelf to truly shine. Also consider what’s on display near the shelf you’re styling. An example is the open shelving featured in my kitchen tour. I’ve filled it with an array of teapots, coffee pots, cake stands, serving trays and more. So when it came time to style the shelving of the nearby garden window, I kept it simple. Just a few items did the trick, preventing the kitchen from being overwhelmed by “stuff”.
