April 4, 2002 -- Baldwin Hardware Corporation put its engineers and designers to work to insure that the public's favorite Baldwin Bath suite would coordinate even better with the public's favorite choice for bath fixtures. Recognizing that the predominately white bath continues to dominate home design, the company is adding two new color options to Laguna, the number one seller among its comprehensive range of Baldwin Bath accessories. Defined by a smooth design on a pedestal base and a rich variety of two-tone color options. Baldwin's Laguna will now be available in tones of warm white and polished brass as well as bright white and chrome. The new color options will be available in nine functional items including: 18-24 and 30 inch towel bars, tissue roll holder, towel ring, robe hook, soap dish, toothbrush/tumbler holder and 24-inch shelf.
