Smitten with Stone

For all the curvaceous comforts offered by molded acrylic tubs, there are some occasions when a more natural bathing experience is the best tonic. This carved marble tub is my idea of a great, restorative soak: its supportive form is at once hand-crafted and modern, and the interplay of the stone's veining and the tub tray's wild grain is worthy of contemplation.
