Is it time to reconsider the modern black bathtub? I confess I associate it with the Studio 54 era (is it just me, or does it have a 1970s bachelor pad associations?). Lately, though, I’ve been noticing sleek and sculptural black bathtubs in a variety of materials that add a moody and mysterious note to the bathroom. And besides, according to T Magazine, seventies jet set glamor is back.
