  • May 4, 2015

BRISTOL, PA. – May 4, 2015 – Robern, the leader in exceptional styling spaces, was thrilled to support the 2015 Design on a Dime showcase, an event that supports New York’s Housing Works. Designers Byron James and Bonnie Steves featured Robern products in two innovative vignettes. The funds from this year’s event will support the organization’s Hull Street Residence, a housing development project that will transform a vacant lot, into beautiful residences for 26 single, formerly homeless adults living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Bonnie Steves

Designer Bonnie Steves from BJS-Assoc. Interior designed a thematic vignette she called Sunset Over The Hudson, incorporating shades of black and white interspersed with a vibrant electric orange that lend a bit of a jolt to the room. Of the design, Steves says, “I derived the theme to give reflection to the light, darkness and vibrancy of ultimately the beauty of the City.” Steves built the room around several Robern products, including a 24” vanity and coordinating white glass vanity top. The vanity is flanked by two 6” deep electric M Series cabinets and completed with the Uplift medicine cabinet with built-in electric, night lights and defogger. Uplift Pendant lighting completes the space.

Byron James

Designer Byron C. James-Rodrigues, from the House of Oasis, entitled his edgy theme: The Men's Lounge - 50 Shades of Byron. He has created an oasis of luxe proportions that is meant to tickle the senses and dazzle the soul. From hard corners to soft edges, James-Rodrigues says, “I wanted to create an environment that juxtaposes dark and light, with gray holding the contradictions together.” The focal point of the room is a black and white Neptune bathtub. The tub is flanked by a pair of Robern vanities in black and two Robern PL Series Cabinets.
