The winter-weather prognosticators are at it again—only this time, I'm inclined to believe their warnings about frigid conditions. Even though we're surrounded by an icy, wind-sculpted environment that all-too resembles the design of this bathtub, I would happily fill it with hot water for a long, thawing soak. There's a bit of cold irony in Caroline Beaupere's fixture design, though. It's inspired not by drifting snow, but by the desert dunes of the Siwa Oasis in Egypt. clarkearchitectural.com
