Opulent Bathtubs

Opulent Bathtubs

Sometimes I like to swoon over things I can't afford, things almost no one can afford. It's pure escapism. And what's more escapist than taking a hot relaxing bath in a tub carved from semi-precious stone? Nothing.

I'm not sure which one of these tubs I'd prefer to take a fantasy bath in. The Lineatre has tufted white leather with crystal buttons and a shower curtain that can double as a tapestry. The Baldi stone tubs are decadent. The purple one is carved out of amethyst, but I find the emerald color of the malachite more appealing. The House of Tetard-Haudiquez-Grisoni (THG) created this visually stunning art deco tub with gold leaf inlay, which includes a hydrotherapy system and a headrest. THG also designed the Arabasque tub with baroque back lighting. The light source is LED so there is no need to worry about electrocution (which can quickly kill a good day dream) and the ambient light would certainly add to any relaxing atmosphere.

I'm at a loss. I guess it's fortunate that I will never be faced with the tough decision of choosing just one bathtub worth more than the GNP of a small country!
