Required Reading: The Perfect Bath by Barbara Sallick

September 14, 2010

Waterworks co-founder and bath historian Barbara Sallick is the grand dame of bathroom design (she’s on the board of directors at the Institute of Classical Architecture); she and her husband, Robert, started Waterworks in 1978 to bring European bath style to the US. Anyone who is interested in bath fixtures, fittings, and design should head over to her online journal, The Perfect Bath, where Sallick chronicles her travels and shares her observations on bath design.
