Clad in mahogany, this New York home for a family of five is an exceptional collection of horizontal volumes. Constrasting sharply is this curving and all-white tub, from Signature Hardware, in the master bathroom.
This custom-designed freestanding tub takes the opposite route, embodying a rectangular form. It's clad in tallowwood that matches the bathroom walls of an elegant Australian home carefully detailed with local timbers.
Not all freestanding tubs are an indoor affair. Located behind this monolithic minimalist live/work home in Nagoya, this outdoor room is for evening baths, a common ritual in Japan. The residents curtain the bath during use, but won’t cover any other windows, “because it feels good to couple the inner space with the outside world.”
This quirky San Francisco home, which enjoys epic views of the city's rolling landscape, features this equally-epic black, white, grey, and silver bathroom.
This artist's lofty live/work residence in Toronto feature a few eccentric elements, perhaps most of all this bedroom-cum-bathroom. The room may look luxe but it's a mixture of bed and lamps from Ikea with an inexpensive bathtub from Neptune.
Last but not least is this Deauville tub by Victoria + Albert as seen in this wood-and-concrete Minneapolis home. The green enameled metal sign is vintage from the London Underground
