Founder of bathroom specialist Drummonds, Drummond Shaw passed away at his home in Dorset, on June 28, 2023.
Born in 1950, he first started working as a commodity broker in the city, where he developed a passion for architectural salvage whilst restoring a Regency house.
Drummond Shaw set up Drummonds Architectural Antiques in 1988 and it become known for supplying antique bathroom fittings, which it restored for sale in its own workshops.
Although the business bought and sold a wide variety of architectural antiques, Drummond Shaw’s main passion was classic bathrooms.
His company began producing its own bathroom collections, made using the same materials and traditional manufacturing techniques from previous centuries.
Today Drummonds is a leading bathroom specialist with showrooms in London and New York. Although having taken more time to spend with his family and pursue his other passions, Drummond was still a driving force within the company, and leaves behind his wife and three children.
