Here in Texas, we are known to like our *thrones* ..and uber luxury in our bathroooms.
Today, dear readers, we would like to introduce you to the world’s finest luxury *throne*, TOTO’s luxury toilets from Japan’s TOTO, manufacturers of the world’s most environmentally responsible and technologically advanced toilets and bathroom plumbing fixtures and one of Leslie Hendrix Wood ‘s #BlogTourVegas sponsors to #KBIS2015.
And, although today’s post is sponsored, TOTO really is the world’s finest, and helped the USA’s Environmental Protection Agency set the standards in water efficiency for toilets.
To quote from their site, “As members of the EPA’s WaterSense Steering Committee, TOTO water efficiency specialists advised the EPA on developing product performance criteria for the WaterSense program. TOTO products are recognized is part of the EPA’s National Environmental Achievement Track, the “gold standard” for facility-based environmental performance, recognizing environmental excellence by encouraging facilities with strong environmental records to go above and beyond legal requirements. TOTO is also a partner in the EPA’s innovative collaboration with the freight industry to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution. “
One of TOTO’s wall hung toilets was displayed in the TOTO bathroom at Elle Decor Magazine’s Modern Life Concept House in Miami Beach, FL last year. Click the picture below to tour the video of this beautiful bathroom.
TOTO’s elegant wall hung toilet in this bathroom utilized state of the art water saving + sanitation technology and as you can see, a wall hung toilet is perfect for being able to keep your bathroom floors hygienic and clean, too.
Speaking of floors, we love that TOTO found an innovative way to recycle its *less than perfect* porcelain by forming a partnership with Crossville Tile, which now utilizes TOTO’s raw *not quite right* porcelain as the raw material for its recyled bathroom tiles.
That kind of design collaboration rocks our world.
What really sets TOTO apart however, it their hard work to educate people about the impact that the use of water, through flushing, has had and currently has on our environment, and then devising technologically advanced toilet technology to reduce that impact.
It used to be this….
but at the recent #KBIS2015 show, their commitment to education and technological innovation in high efficiency toilets was amply demonstrated through their beautiful exhibitor space, as Leslie’s pictures below will show you.
If you would like to study their technological innovations in detail, please click here for an in-depth overview of each one.
Have you ever seen a toilet’s insides like this? TOTO went all out to educate everyone that attended #KBIS2015 about what makes their luxury toilets truly unique and worth the investment.
This toilet, the DRAKE model, shown below, uses gravity to use only 1 gallon of water per flush, avoiding the noise of pressure assist HET toilets and has gotten great reviews online.
It’s an excellent choice if you’re on a tighter luxury budget, but would like to support TOTO for what they are working to do for water conservation and sustainability worldwide.

TOTO puts *People – First Innovation* at the heart of everything they do, as you can see by this diagram from their site.
