Introducing the SoHo 2 range from Villeroy and Boch

Villeroy & Boch have long been the biggest name associated with bathrooms. V&B are renowned for their great design and world class engineering. As part of their already expansive collection, Villeroy and Boch have refreshed and reintroduced their SoHo collection, with the new SoHo 2.

Subway or SoHo?

We are asked all the time; “is that just Subway?”, “Why do some people still call it Subway?” or “How come it’s not on the Villeroy & Boch website?”. Ok, this bit is a little complicated, originally the SoHo collection was part of a range called Subway, but with the introduction of the newer Subway 2 range the collection was renamed SoHo. So there were two collections called Subway and there sort of still is, some people still call it Subway and some people call it SoHo to differentiate it. The SoHo collection as it was had been around for a few years, so when the new products have been introduced they were named: SoHo 2 (are you still with us here, someone thought that this made sense!). The Subway bathroom collection has dominated bathroom sales for the past decade; it’s the flagship range you think of when you think of Villeroy & Boch. It’s not the cheapest Villeroy & Boch range, but it is far from their most expensive. Now it’s called SoHo 2 the designers have gone back to the drawing board and re-engineered the furniture in the range; they have updated the finishes and used their most recent design
