ABOUT US

WE’RE FRIXOS AND SOFIA CHARALAMBOUS, AND WE MET AT UNIVERSITY IN 1993. LITTLE DID WE KNOW AT FIRST, BUT IT’S A MATCH MADE IN BATHROOM HEAVEN!

Bathrooms are in Frixos’ blood. His father established a top-end bathroom business in Woodford Green, Essex, where Frixos worked at weekends and during school holidays. By 15, he was visiting sites, learning to measure and plan bathroom layouts… so what Frixos doesn’t know about bathrooms is not worth knowing!

Born into a family of fashionistas, Sofia developed her flair for design at an early age. Her family manufactured clothing for Top Shop, River Island, Dorothy Perkins, to name just a few. After university, Sofia worked in Eveningwear at Selfridges, so she’s experienced everything from high street fashion to high end design!

How Bathroom Origins was born

In 1995, newly-wed and working for the family business, we spotted a gap in the market for well-priced, design-led bathroom accessories. At the time, products were typically cheap and ugly or extortionate and ‘nice’; but we knew there were far better options just waiting to be discovered. So together, we founded Bathroom Origins. That was 25 years ago, and we’ve not looked back since!

Our mantra is ‘design-led, quality assured, practically affordable’… and we mean it!  

All the products we sell are chosen – or designed – personally by us, reflecting our passion for great design, love of creativity and appreciation of quality materials and craftsmanship.

We genuinely do care. We strive to offer you the very best service and prices; we are honest, transparent and friendly; and we will always go that extra mile for you.

We hope you love our products just as much as we do.

Was it fate? 

In 1991, whilst Sofia was studying in San Francisco, she bought a miniature porcelain roll top bath containing two little teddies and a bottle of Blue Nun.  “I don’t know why, but I said to myself I’d give this to the man I was going to marry.” 

The rest, as they say, is history!
