Freestanding tubs have become very popular in the past few years and the trend shows no signs of slowing down based on the offerings shown at IDS2017. Designers are presenting new finishes and shapes, as well as down-sized versions of luxurious tubs for smaller bathrooms. Native Trails showed this spectacular Santorini soaking tub, which is forged from high-quality recycled copper. Master coppersmiths spend weeks crafting the textured finish with thousands of hammer strikes.
Amidst a colorful wall, a black accent space is painted onto the sink and mirror wall in the bathroom to create a cohesive, singular feature. Three separate mirrors, instead of one large single mirror, allow more black to be visible, increasing the sophistication of this simple bathroom space. Floor-to-ceiling black walls aren‘t something that you see in a typical bathroom, but the contemporary vibe is tangible. Rich yellow silhouettes pop against the black wall and dark fixtures, breaking up the large visual chunk of black and bringing in some nice color to the cozy bathroom setting. Plus, few things are better than exposed light bulbs against a black wall.
Although the biggest disadvantage of pedestal sinks is the fact that they don’t offer any storage, they also offer a unique advantage, that of style. They can’t really be compared with anything else. In this case, the design is simple, robust and solid, a great way to stand out without being too obvious.
