Lap of Luxury

The latest products make bath time a spa experience

Lap of Luxury - VELVET TOUCH

Italy-based Lapitec has a new addition to its Essenza collection of sintered-stone surfaces. Nero Assoluto Velluto sports a charcoal hue with a soft, velvety texture. The non-porous, eco-friendly slabs—made with 100-percent mineral materials and no resins—come in a range of sizes. lapitec.com/en

MOODY HUES
Boost Smoke, a line of AtlasPlan porcelain slabs made by Ceramiche Atlas Concorde, conjures the smoky look of concrete, with warm gray tones in hammered or matte finishes. Available in large-format sizes for a sleek, seamless look. Find at Gramaco Stone Source in Savage, Maryland. gramaco.com

ON A CURVE
A curvaceous, C-shaped spout distinguishes Dornbracht’s CYO series of bathroom fixtures conceived by the German studio Sieger Design. The sculptural faucets come in matte or polished chrome, platinum or brass finishes. Low-profile round handles in textured metal and natural stone (not pictured) complete the collection. dornbracht.com

SAFETY FIRST
Grab bars—practical safety features for any bath—can also be stylish. California Faucets’ Deluxe Grab Bars boast 10 looks, seven lengths and 28 finishes. Made of brass, ergonomically designed and adorned with decorative detailing, they coordinate with the company’s plumbing fixtures. calfaucets.com

CHEERFUL STATEMENT
With its array of sizes, patterns and colorways, the Europa Arte collection of Portuguese ceramic tiles makes a cheerful statement. Six-by-six-inch, encaustic-look Aquerello tiles showcase three patterns; Palermo is pictured above in the Cielo colorway. Available at area Architessa locations. architessa.com

UNDER GLASS
Made in Italy, Glacier Lake porcelain tiles employ glazing to replicate the look of glass. The series comes in matte and gloss finishes and a range of colors and sizes, as well as in a horizontally ridged version. Pictured: Nero in a glossy finish and four-by-12-inch format. Find at area Best Tile locations. besttile.com

BATHING BEAUTY
Waterworks’ elegant Emile tub is a cast-iron oval sheathed in a brass finish for a luxe, classic look. Measuring a roomy 67 inches long and 27-and-a-half inches deep, the freestanding vessel can be made to order through Waterworks in Georgetown. waterworks.com

COLOR ON CUE
The Colour shower system by Italian manufacturer Gessi complements its square or circular rain showerhead with adjustable water jets for hydromassage as well as a nebulizer that atomizes water into mist. LEDs inside the showerhead create color sequences that can be programmed via digital keypad. gessi.com

GOOD HYGIENE
Health and safety take a front seat with Lifeker Plus+, an antibacterial coating devised by Spain’s Keraben Grupo to protect its ceramic tile surfaces. The coating is available on all of the company’s collections, including SuperWhite (pictured above), featuring an array of contemporary-looking 3D patterns. en.keraben.com

Lap of Luxury - DESIGN INSPIRATION

An artfully designed radiator makes a bold statement. Conceived by Andrea Crosetta for Italian manufacturer Antrax IT, Pioli evokes a ladder with its rungs grouped in threes; the unit also serves as a towel warmer. It’s made from carbon steel in two sizes and available in more than 200 colorways. antrax.it/en

STARRY NIGHT
The moody night sky inspired Island Stone’s Celestial glass subway tiles, which are characterized by a subtle, metallic shimmer in a glossy finish. Available in four complementary or contrasting colorways: Moon Beam, Dusk, Dark Star and Galaxy Blue (pictured). Intended for wall applications. islandstone.com

SURFACE STYLE
Radianz joins a growing assortment of practical, engineered alternatives to natural stone. Durable, hygienic and scratch- and stain-resistant, the quartz product comes in more than 70 high-gloss hues. Pictured: Marble-look Aries, part of the Cirrus collection, is one of the brand’s new offerings. radianz-quartz.com
