For the art collector. The freestanding Napoli is not just a functional tub – it’s a sculptural installation. Edward Taylor, the president of Victoria & Albert’s US headquarters, says the Napoli’s ultra-contemporary design is the result of more than a decade of freestanding bath development, and is inspired by the pure organic form of an egg. The tub is a 75-inch-long, low-slung ovoid shape that provides ergonomic comfort and cocoons the bather.

This bathroom by David Howell Design is created almost exclusively out of Jerusalem Gold limestone.

An entire wall of this bathroom, designed by architect Lindy Leuschke, is tiled in purple, blue and gray glass mosaics. These mosaic tiles add a strong, rich element to the otherwise simple decorative scheme.
