The Le Acque tub is a limited edition product designed by Claudio Silvestrin. We like its organic form and the overall natural, raw appearance. This is a tub with a lot of character and with great potential to become a statement piece. Stone bathtubs are high-end and sophisticated and have designs that usually try to capture the beauty and uniqueness of the material they're made of as best as possible. We're so impressed by the looks that we often forget to consider the practical side of such a product. For example, this is Boat 50, an oval tub made out of a hollowed stone block. It weighs 500 kg and it requires special so make sure you learn how to clean and maintain it to avoid damage.
In every room or particular area of the house there's one element or furniture piece which stands out from the rest and which dictates the way everything else is placed and oriented. In the bathroom, that element is usually the bathtub. Its central role is due to its size but also its function and the ambiance that revolves around it. Bathtubs come in numerous different styles, shapes, sizes, colors, finishes and they can also be made of various different materials. Each type is special and inspiring in its own way. Freestanding bathtubs are usually the most interesting and eye-catching ones. The ones in the Papillon series are especially beautiful. Each tub is carved is carved from a single block of material and is made to order, with the possibility to be customized. You can choose from seven different materials and finishes including granite, travertine, sandstone, limestone and Carrara marble. The sandstone version looks very much like a wooden bathtub and that can potentially give the entire room a luxurious spa-like feel.
His and her sinks. What they are: you'd have two sinks in one bathroom (and the sink style could vary--they could be vessels, drop-ins, undermount, etc). The sinks could be part of the same vanity, as in the picture below from one of our bath renovations. Or you could have separate vanities and separate sinks. See the picture below (again, another one of our bathroom renovations). Benefits: No more fighting for tooth-brushing time (etc.), which works well for couples and households where a bunch of kids share a bathroom. From a design aesthetic, two sinks also add interesting symmetry to a room. Farmhouse sinks. What they are: Picture a sink with an exposed front, one that juts out over the edge. These sinks tend to be extra deep and are typically used in kitchens, rather than the bath, although we've seen some cool farmhouse sinks in kids' bathrooms (the sinks are big enough for bathing babies and toddlers). Check out some pictures on Houzz here. Benefits: They give a room a charming, rustic flair...and they provide plenty of room (again, perfect for kitchens with lots of dishes to wash).
