Flipping through the latest issue of Boston Home, I was struck by the beauty of this "invisible" tub. Made from a thick sheet of glass inserted between the two tile walls, it's so simple, yet I've never seen anything quite like it.
Boston-based architecture & design firm Stern McCafferty created this custom bath based on an inspiration photo from owners Amy and Ethan d'Abelmont Burnes. They gut renovated their South End rowhouse when they bought the property next door and decided to combine them. The couple wanted an open and modern sanctuary, and this tub definitely fits in with that aesthetic.
I highly recommend picking up the Summer 2011 issue of Boston Home to see the rest of the d'Ablemont Burnes' fantastic abode.
