Oborain | The Chic Outdoor Shower

When I saw Oborain at the AD Home Show last month, I was instantly craving summer. And with this week’s unusually temperate weather, these chic pre-fab outdoor showers seemed the perfect find to share.

OborainLaunched last year by Kirsten Oxboel and Jim Lobley, Oborain is the grown up designer version of that beloved fixture of summer beach vacations. At the intersection of nature, design and technology, the enclosure and actual shower fixture form a combined package that is easy to assemble (30 minutes), adaptable in size and layout and evidently a breeze to plumb.

OborainThe design is not only an example of simple modern elegance but carefully considered in terms of “durability, sustainability, and ease of maintenance.” And for families with children and/or dogs, I think an Oborain shower would be a brilliant addition for warm weather living.

Their new Cove design, with its cedar clapboard is inspired by traditional beach houses. Handmade in western Massachusetts, Oborain’s showers are available with either a Hansgrohe Croma Green shower pipe or Axor Citterio Thermostatic shower pipe.

  1. This couldn’t have come at a better time…we NEED a shower by the boathouse..THANKS!! franki

  2. This would certainly solve the problem of too many summer guests and not enough bathrooms. With the addition of one of those portable solar hot water makers that they use on boats it would stretch the hotwater for your home as well!

  3. I don’t know how I missed this at the show. This is perfect!my dogs would love cooling in the hot days of summer, and great for rinsing out after a swim…now all we need is some sunny warm days.

  4. Thanks for the kudos! Please check out our website and download a catalog to see more about Oborain showers… and let me know if you have any questions!

    • I’m so sorry but it doesn’t look like they are – too bad, I really liked their product!

  5. I am very interested in this shower for my house for an outdoor shower..need dimensions, and also price range.

    • I don’t blame you – this was a very stylish and practical solution. Since I wrote this piece, I believe this company is no longer in business.
