This morning I attended a presentation hosted by IFDA/NYC on the Maison et Objet trade show. As Hermine Mariaux reported on emerging trends in furnishings and textiles, she noted a nascent interest in Baroque-era design and art. The curving profile of the GrandTour bathtub seems right on track with that forecast—but there's a twist of a different kind to this story. The tub was pilfered off the exhibition floor when it was displayed at another industry expo, Cersaie. [Puns about a clean getaway will be stifled.]
