10 Easy Pieces: Modern Bathtubs


10 Easy Pieces: Modern Bathtubs

February 27, 2013

We’ve covered Classic Freestanding Bathtubs in the past, but what about the modernists among us? We’ve rounded up 10 of the best modern freestanding bathtubs across the pricing spectrum.

Above: Victoria and Albert’s Barcelona Double Ended Tub is made of Englishcast, a blend of volcanic limestone and high performance resins that results in a naturally white, solid tub that doesn’t have a surface coating that can chip or peel away. Measuring 70.25 by 34.25 by 21.8 inches, it is backed by a 25 year warranty; $4,180 at Quality Bath.

Above: The Biblio by Antonio Lupi is a Corian tub with built-in shelf options. Contact Bagno for dealer information and pricing.

Above: Designed by Dutch Architect Wiel Arets for Alessi, the Il Bagno Alessi Dot Bathtub by Laufen Ceramicware is $7,540. Locate dealers through Architonic.

Above: Duravit’s Starck X designed by Philippe Starck. An oversized tub with a minimal design (180 by 90 inches); available with either straight or sloping backrests. Basic tub pricing begins at $2,452 at Fixture Universe.

Above: Waterworks’ Colette Freestanding Oval Bathtub is a modern take on a 19th century design with a matte exterior and high polish interior for $11,500.

Above: The Hermosa Contemporary Soaking Tub gives a nod to traditional baths with its rolled lip. Made of acrylic, it measures 69 by 32 by 26 inches and comes with the drain and overflow installed; $2,799 from Bellobagno.

Above: The Kallista One Freestanding Bathtub starts at $5,995 and features Gelcoat construction.

Above: The Freestanding Oval Composite Bathtub is available in white or ivory for $11,026 from Waterworks.
