Last July 19, I was one of the lucky bloggers to be invited to American Standard‘s Luxe & Style Blogger Engagement held in Buona Vita, an Italian restaurant in Molito Complex, Alabang. I’ve tried dining in Buona Vita before with my hubby’s family so the thought of experiencing their food once again made the event more interesting for me. Will be blogging about this resto soon!
One of my mommy blogger friends Peachy was also there so warming up with fellow bloggers before the event was a breeze. Out of 7 bloggers, 4 of us are from Cavite 🙂 We all had a short chit chat with Ms. Fe Cajumban, the Marketing Communications Manager of Lixil Corporation.
I wondered what’s in store for us bloggers and for our readers as well although we already got a hint from their invitation 🙂 They will be launching an American Standard Luxe & Style Promo which you’ll surely love to win (hint: elegance is timeless)! So read on and be more excited 🙂
Before anything else, have you heard of American Standard? Who doesn’t? Ask your parents and they’ll surely answer you YES! My parents had theirs for more than 20 years as far as I can remember. When I recently asked my mom to describe their experience with this brand over the years, one powerful word came out…”MATIBAY!”
I first got a glimpse of American Standard when I was in high school. Our school bus used to pass by BF Homes, Paranaque where their former factory/office was located. I wasn’t much interested about it during those days but now that I have my own family and have our own house, all I could think about is for our home improvement. I love clean and good-smelling bathrooms. They say that the home owner’s personality can be seen in this private room where we do our thing. I even spend some of my “me time” here reading a magazine or browsing my social media accounts lol! Alright, too much info from me! Let’s proceed 🙂
All of us only want the best for our homes and one of the most important things to consider for our hard-earned investment, which is our home, is to know more about the company behind this famous brand.
Ms. Fe Cajumban and Ms. Liza Cancino gave us an overview on American Standard’s Luxe and Style Collection.
WHO OWNS AMERICAN STANDARD?
American Standard is one of the top brands owned by LIXIL Corporation. LIXIL came from the combined words “living” and “life“.
LIXIL Corporation is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of building materials and housing equipment solutions operating in over 30 countries for nearly a century. With its headquarters in Japan, the company boasts of an innovative product line-up ranging from bathroom systems to exterior wall materials and beyond, offering customers all-encompassing solutions for housing-related needs.

The company’s goal is to create a sustainable lifestyle which is in harmony with the earth and with a mission to build “bonds” that lead to a good life. In summary, they want to “Link to the Earth” and “Link to Good Living“.
As a comprehensive living and housing solutions company, LIXIL aims to fulfill its commitment to realizing each individual’s desire for “Good Living” with its three vision –

(2) Provide value for life – Establish lifelong partnerships that grow the value of each customer’s home and transform itself to accommodate the changes in customers’ lifestyles. They have special products made for the elderly and disabled.

This collection is designed by Tomas Feigl and Achim Pohl, from Europe’s renowned design house Artefakt. Their suite includes ceramic washbasins with smooth and soft lines, gleaming showers and faucets and a whirlpool bathtub perfect for creating an indoor paradise.
The Activa Collection, also created by Feigl and Pohl, possesses subtle combinations of curves, soft squares and ovals, and provides a sense of harmony and balance in the bathroom.

All of these demonstrate the mission of the American Standard brand to environmental protection.
Were you able to choose your dream bathroom? I personally love to have the La Vita Collection 🙂
Are you ready for the promo? Wait, wait, wait! We have to see for ourselves what these luxury and stylish collection looks like in person. So with happy tummies, we went to Wilcon Depot, the largest home depot in the Philippines.
My family is a “suki” of Wilcon when we were putting up our house a few years ago. The staff is always very accommodating to whatever our needs are at the moment.
We were then led to the showroom of American Standard.
If you own a home or dreaming of having one, you’ll understand the feeling of wanting to have all the best fixtures that give comfort and style.
You can either purchase by piece or get a package for more savings. The American Standard staff will be able to guide you through on which of their products better suit your needs.
And of course, shopping for bathroom fixtures means trying them out too. Here I am with fellow bloggers Camille and Leah sitting on our thrones 🙂
Here are other American Standard bathroom fixtures that I would also like to have especially the one on the lower right of the photo.
These are all perfect for a very comfortable experience in a home’s private place 🙂
