I was walking around Notting Hill on a Sunday morning when I had an unexpected sighting of this drop-dead gorgeous round black-and-white freestanding bathtub in the window of kitchen and bathroom design specialists Alternative Plans.
The "UFO" bathtub is made by Italian manufacturer Agape, costs ₤7,500, and also comes in stainless steel, for a mere ₤20,000. Alternative Plans is a favorite among designers and architects looking for streamlined high-end modern solutions for the home, and an escapist showroom for those who can only dream of being kidnapped by the aliens who own this bathtub.
