This piece is designed to make efficient use of a small bathroom. The left and right consoles are set back to give clearance for the toilet and door, respectively. The basin is lowered to allow a mirrored cabinet door to swing open above the faucet. Elm is a rot-resistant wood that will weather the damp conditions of a bathroom very well over the years. This is a good example of how a piece of furniture or cabinetry can be well designed to fit into, and be useful in, a particular space. Because the cabinet is free-standing the clients can take it with them should they ever decide to move.
