Tell us a little bit about yourselves and the beginnings of Kassatex.
We both came from textile backgrounds thanks to our families having owned several textile mills in South America since 1960. After 8 years traveling around the world as International Sales Director for his family’s towel and bedding mill, Ernesto came to NY in 1999 to establish Kassatex with the knowledge gained through this experience. Miro, who at the time was working with his father in their spinning mill, came into the company in 2005 when the opportunity to join Ernesto as a partner came about.
How do you balance each other’s vision and stylish aesthetic?
Being family, we were both brought up with very similar traditions and are very much alike in our taste and work ethic. We also have very similar taste standards, which is why our aesthetic is so pronounced in our products.
Such an awesome collaboration happening in New York! What inspires you when refreshing the home for a new season?
Like New York, Kassatex is modern with old world values. We get inspiration from our continuous travels around the world.
So, even though bathrooms have small square footage compared, are they still important to home décor?
The bathroom plays a very important role as we spend a significant amount of time in the bathroom, just like our bedroom. We do believe it is often overlooked. The bathroom plays an important design role to the aesthetic of the homeowner’s taste.
What’s the undisputable must-have bathroom décor item?
Towels are the most relevant item when decorating your bathroom. One should splurge on towels as the quality is very important given its usage.
Time for a towel transformation! Are there any fabrics we should look for when picking out a new set?
High quality towels such as those made of long staple cotton.
If a homeowner’s looking for extra décor flair, what should they add?
A lotion dispenser is a lot more glamorous than a plain liquid soap bottle you got at the drugstore, and you can also have a matching one for lotion if you wish. A tray is perfect for small spaces since you can use it to arrange and display other accessories (like a tumbler and toothbrush holder), candles or any other item in a neater way. A cotton jar keeps all your toiletries hidden and accessible at the same time in a cute, sophisticated way.
We know maximizing space is crucial in the bathroom, can you offer any space-saving tips to abide by?
Stick with whites and neutral colors when it comes to walls and curtains. Reserve dark and bold colors only for accessories and small details.
Go with glass and other see-through materials to visually expand a small bathroom.
Hide storage as much as possible and avoid clutter, which can be overwhelming and make the room feel even smaller.
With the holidays upon us, what should we keep in mind when picking out bathroom accessories?
Bring fall into your home by including warm tones like red, orange and plum, which will make your hand towels pop up.
Add some sparkle with fabrics like lurex and materials like mercury glass to make your bathroom shine along with the holiday spirit.
Captivate your guests’ senses with the fresh, refined scent of a luxurious candle.
When having guests stay over, provide enough towels and wash clothes and make sure they’re great quality, soft and cozy.
