High End Bathtubs

High End Bathtubs

Bath tubs have morphed into sculpture. The New York Times rounds up some very, very pricey tubs that will elevate your bathroom to art gallery status. If you have the budget — and space — for some of these behemouths, make sure you have a cleaning service (keeping a stainless steel bathtub void of spots and streaks is not our idea of fun)...

Our favorite of the bunch is the Papillon tub designed by Michael Zimber and Michael Cahill for Stone Forest. Shown in Carrara marble (above), the design is available in different materials including granite and travertine.

Though undeniably attractive in the above photo, the Double Wall satin finish stainless steel tub by Neo-Metro might be a nightmare to keep clean. For all the over-the-top tubs (including a tub wrapped in embossed Hermes leather), see Personal Shopper: If You Have to Ask, Try the Shower.
