Bath Basics

Stylish products conjure a luxurious, spa-like experience

AU NATURAL
Native Trails’ Avalon bathtub combines unexpected materials—natural jute fiber and cement—to create a sturdy, crack-, stain- and scratch-resistant surface. The handmade tubs, offered in four earth-tone finishes, are available locally at Ferguson locations. nativetrailshome.com; ferguson.com

LORD OF THE RINGS
In 2002, French designer Andrée Putman created a circular ring with a slight twist for a line of Christofle jewelry. This enduring motif now adorns Collection “O,” new faucets created for THG Paris. These sculptural fixtures are available in 28 finishes (rose gold is pictured above) through Renaissance Tile & Bath. thg-paris.com; renaissancetileandbath.com

SMOOTH AS VELVET
Alape’s sleek, glazed-steel bathroom sinks now come in two new enamel finishes. Terra (pictured above) is a matte, powder-like surface with a velvety feel, while Aqua is a glossy enamel resembling glass. Both are available in a range of hues. alape.com

SET IN STONE
Sherle Wagner’s Dorian Collection of conical knobs and pulls comes in 22 finishes, with 14 optional inserts of semiprecious stones and contrasting metals. Pictured in platinum with lapis and tiger’s eye inserts. Available locally though W.T. Weaver & Sons, Inc. sherlewagner.com; weaverhardware.com

VANITY FAIR
Designed by Philippe Starck for Duravit, the Starck 1 Barrel Vanity pairs a conical base and a ceramic washbasin. Available in matte lacquer as well as wood veneer; inside, a black-laminate lining and glass shelf combine functionality with style. duravit.us

LUXE VIBE
Waterworks channeled a luxe vibe with the Boulevard collection, a 22-piece line of bathroom fittings, fixtures, hardware and accessories. It’s available at Waterworks’ showroom in Georgetown in chrome, nickel, unlacquered brass and matte nickel; crystal accents add a touch of elegance. waterworks.com

MIND THE GAP
Masterminded by North Bethesda-based Holland Bath & Spa, the Hollspa Floating Shower Bench mounts to the wall on stainless-steel brackets. A gap between the fully customizable seat and the wall eliminates the need for mildew-causing grout or caulk. hollspa.com

INDUSTRIAL STYLE
The Miabella Collection of Italian-made, glazed-porcelain tiles conveys an industrial sensibility. Available locally at Best Tile in rectangular, square, hexagonal and mosaic formats, as well as in four vibrant colors. The tiles are suited to both floor and wall applications. besttile.com
