Candana Designs has turned the big 30, and still holds its rein as the leading innovator in the bathroom industry. Candana has masterminded the look and feel of countless residential and commercial bathrooms throughout Australasia and inspired a bathroom design culture that has wowed the industry and consumers year after year.
“The business has been in the family from the beginning, with family members being integral to its growth and longevity. Because of this approach we have built so many strong relationships with leading Interior Designers, Architects and the consumer – the grandchildren of our earlier clients are now coming in for new business,” said managing director Marc Reed.
The team at Candana Designs all pride themselves on perfect craftsmanship. “Being designers ourselves, we devote a great deal of time and thought into researching and observing each and every client’s existing or planned bathroom, so we can anticipate their needs and wants. And we have the knowledge to properly assess what we recommend.”
The flagship showroom located in Woollahra and second showroom in Brookvale showcase a diverse mix of decedent architecture and design work featuring aworking shower area, a Devon & Devon room, unique hand-crafted basins and a large selection of original bathroom accessories. The extensive range of products on show are a combination of Australian and European- manufacturedcraftsmanship. Brands such as Hansgrohe, Grohe, Villeroy and Boch, Duravit,Omvivo, Boyd, Laufen, Kaldewei and many more line the walls and shelves of the showrooms, with a wide variety of bathroom products catering to all budgets.
“We also work very closely with manufacturers and importers advising them on market demands, and we attend many of the major overseas exhibitions to keep up with the latest design trends,” enthused Marc.
One of the 2011 highlights for Candana is the development of their spectacular new website. The website has just recently been launched and for the first time it enables customers to view an extensive range of products online, tap into industry news, handy hints and the latest product launches. In addition, architects, interior designers and builders now have the ability to log into the specifiers’ tab and create their product specification list online, complete with product dimensions and pricing. This feature is groundbreaking, with Candana being one of the only bathroom houses in Australia to offer this service.
“We recognised the need in the industry for this service a while ago and have been working hard to make it as comprehensive as possible,” said Marc.
“We want to save our clients time and make this section as easy to select product, as it is for them when they are in the showroom. Many of our designers worklate into the night, which is when they are most creative and now they can complete the task with our detailed online specifier’s section. We are very excited about it, as it will be an industry first.”
Candana Designs maybe turning 30, but the team is as creative and fresh as the day they started. There’s a new generation in the mix, gorgeous new designs and a killer website in the mix.
