This continues a series of posts that examines the way design can bring elegance to even the most seemingly mundane household fixtures. Shower enclosures, it turns out, can be breathtakingly beautiful. So can kitchen and bathroom sinks. And now we're turning our attention to the humble bathtub. If you thought clawfoot tubs were as good as it gets, you were so, so wrong.
