Antique claw foot tubs and bath fixtures present a feeling of luxury and decadence that many of our customers desire. In 2001, Southern Accents began looking for a line of replicated bath fixtures when the demand for the antique and salvaged bath fixtures quickly outgrew our supply of antique products. After much research, we found exactly what we were looking for with Chadder & CO.’s line of high-end, traditional and antique plumbing products. We began a conversation with Chadder & CO.’s owner and designer, Martin Chadder, which lead to Southern Accents purchasing the exclusive U.S.A. distribution rights for this exquisite line.
With the purchase of exclusive distributions rights in the U.S., Chadder and CO. U.S.A. was formed. Southern Accents is thrilled to be able to offer our customers a choice when it comes to bath products. By continuing to offer the antique cast iron tubs and sinks, Southern Accents also has access to this high end line of luxury baths which allow us to meet the expanding needs of our customers.
One thing that sets Chadder apart is the availability of baths that have the look of the antique cast iron tubs but with improved features afforded from the development of a new material and manufacturing process. Martin Chadder is recognized as one of Britain’s finest traditional bathroom designers, famed for his cast metal designs as well as his commissioned works. Having close ties to the yachting and marine industry, Martin used developments in marine technology to produce a new material, Chaddite, that provides a sound, solid bath product. The use of this material allows him to manufacture tubs that have the look and feel of cast iron at a fraction of the weight, which allows the tubs to be more easily transported. The Chaddite tubs have a Teflon coating, making them easy to clean. They are also warm to the touch with good thermal properties that better retain the heat in the water. These qualities take luxury bath design and performance to a new level.
In addition to the spectacular tubs, Chadder & CO., U.S.A. offers a line of exquisite basins, taps and faucets, mirrors, and bath accessories.
