Our client was looking to create a retreat...a place where both her and her husband could unwind and let the day's tension's just slip away. The freestanding tub, imported from Italy is by Devon & Devon. It is lighter in weight than cast iron, yet maintains the elegance and simplicity that is generally found in freestanding cast iron tubs. The floor mounted tub filler / hand shower is from Horus, a great little plumbing company out of Alsace Lorraine. It was selected because, just like the tub, it takes traditional design and twists it enough to become both fun and elegant.
