This powerful collaboration merges the elegance of Cobra's new Seine Colours range with the design expertise of Kirsty Badenhorst and the extensive Cobra product range at Richmond Plumbing & Sanitaryware. Embark on a journey of inspiration and stand a chance to personally experience a masterful bathroom transformation through our exciting competition.

Kirsty, who has embarked on her own master home makeover journey, recently visited Richmond Plumbing to explore the new Cobra Seine Colours range. She describes the brushed finishes as displaying a level of attention to detail that reflects quality craftsmanship. In her expert opinion, these finishes add depth and character to her bathroom fixtures, enhancing their overall aesthetic appeal.

Kirsty was initially drawn to the field of interior design due to her passion for creating beautiful and functional spaces. She has always had a keen eye for aesthetics and an innate desire to turn ordinary spaces into extraordinary ones.

Over the years, her passion for interior design has only intensified, becoming an integral part of who she is. To keep her passion vibrant for each project, Kirsty seeks inspiration from nature and travel, collaborates with industry professionals, experiments with fresh ideas, stays updated with the latest trends, and networks within the design community.

Collectively, these strategies ensure that every project remains an inspiring and fulfilling experience for her as an interior designer.


Introducing the Cobra Seine Colours Range

While our living spaces have always been a showcase of our individual styles, one area often overlooked for personalisation is the bathroom. However, with the introduction of Cobra's Seine Colours range, your bathroom too can reflect your unique taste.

“A personalised bathroom is more likely to stand the test of time, as it has been created with the homeowner's specific needs in mind. This leads to long-term satisfaction and reduces the need for renovations or updates in the future. Tailoring the bathroom to the homeowner's needs ensures that it is not only aesthetically pleasing but also highly functional and comfortable to use. This may involve customising storage solutions, fixtures, or layout to optimise daily routines,” Kirsty says of the importance of personalised bathroom spaces.

Until recently, the choices for tapware finishes were limited. But now, thanks to Cobra's innovations, we are introduced to three exciting finishes: Brushed Gold, Brushed Nickel, and Brushed Gun Grey.

Alongside the existing chrome and matte black options, homeowners now have a palette of five distinct colours to play with. But these colours are more than mere shades; they embody modern design, minimalism, and a commitment to durable craftsmanship.


Kirsty’s Expert Analysis of The Seine Colours Range

“The new colours offer distinctive and eye-catching aesthetics that set them apart from the more common chrome and matte black options. They introduce a fresh and unique look to the bathroom. Brushed finishes, in particular, offer a softer and warmer appearance compared to the cooler, reflective nature of chrome. This added warmth brings depth and character to the bathroom, making it feel cozier and more inviting.


Here is Kirsty’s take on each colour.

Brushed Gold: Brushed Gold exudes luxury and sophistication. It's an excellent choice for creating a glamorous and opulent bathroom space. This finish pairs beautifully with rich materials like marble and dark wood, enhancing a classic or contemporary design. It adds warmth and a touch of timeless elegance to the bathroom.

Brushed Nickel: Brushed Nickel is a versatile finish that strikes a balance between modern and traditional aesthetics. Its understated elegance complements a wide range of bathroom styles, from transitional to industrial. It pairs well with neutral colour palettes and various materials, making it a safe yet stylish choice for a classic, timeless look.

Brushed Gun Grey: Brushed Gun Grey offers a bold and edgy option for those seeking a more contemporary and industrial bathroom design. It works exceptionally well with concrete or exposed brick walls, creating a sleek and urban ambiance. This finish adds a sense of modernity and can be a striking focal point in a minimalist or industrial-inspired bathroom.

“Overall, the Seine Colours range from Cobra provides interior designers like myself with a valuable selection of finishes to match diverse client preferences and bathroom styles. The versatility of these finishes ensures that they can adapt to various design aesthetics while adding a touch of luxury and personality to each space,” she concludes.


Key Features of the Seine Colours Range

The elegant single lever taps in the Seine Colours Range boast Cobra's FeatherTouch technology, ensuring smooth operation. Cobra’s new Seine Colours can be extended to your shower with shower heads, shower arms, hand showers, and other shower accessories included in this range.

No stone was left unturned when innovating our new colours, which is why we have included minimalistic and modern wastes in the Seine Colours Range. Even seemingly ordinary fixtures, such as towel rails and toilet paper holders, have been transformed into works of art in this range.

All these fixtures undergo a physical vapour deposition (PVD) process, ensuring durability, corrosion resistance, and unmatched aesthetic appeal. Moreover, the bathroom single lever taps are constructed from Cobra dezincification-resistant (DZR) brass, offering resilience and ensuring your taps remain as captivating as the day you bought them for years to come.

With the Seine Colours range, not only do you get trendsetting designs but also Cobra's unwavering commitment to quality. Enjoy a 20-year functionality warranty on wastes and nikki spouts, a 10-year warranty on single-lever taps, and a five-year warranty on shower and bathroom accessories. For further peace of mind, the PVD coating comes with a two-year warranty.
