The Bauhaus structure in Berlin housing SoHo House was once a department store. After WWII, it was used for various purposes by the communist party (Joseph Stalin gave a speech on one of the balconies). Our favorite spaces? The rough luxe baths; featuring the perfect balance of distressed and polish. Get the look with the following elements:

Above: For a similar tile, consider Sausalito-based Heath Ceramics' Dual Glaze collection of tiles, which are a combination of glossy and matte, adding texture, contrast, and depth. Glazes are overlaid on a single tile, creating variations in reflection and the illusion of varying tile sizes within an installation. The 2-by-4-inch, in-stock Dual Glaze Tiles come in four colors—opaque white, stone gray, paprika, or jade—and are $45 per square foot at Heath Ceramics.
Above: Create the illusion of painted brick with Waterworks' Grove Brickworks Field Tile, available in a choice of 16 colors (including Sugar White, shown here). The tiles, made of actual brick, are half an inch thick (a bit thicker than standard tile), measure 2.25 by 8 inches, and retail for $17.50 per square foot.
Above: The Universal Towel Warmer from Waterworks starts at $1,600 for the chrome version.
Above: The Alabax Pendant from Schoolhouse Electric is available in black or white; $169.
