Here’s seven luxury designs for a statement feature

May 2019

The Albion Bath Company

This new design by The Albion Bath Company echoes the luxurious French baths manufactured in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Imperium Bateau bath is available in five different sizes and manufactured in Albion’s own Iso Enamel system, called Imperium. As with other Albion roll-top baths, the exterior surface can be finished in any Dulux Trade or Farrow & Ball colour or one of Albion’s metallic burnished finishes, including gold, iron, or bronze.

Antonio Lupi

The transparent resin material of the new Cristalmood collection by Antoniolupi is both resistant as well as versatile, while this innovative finish allows you to see the flow of the water for an added design feature. Available in nine colours, including thus nebbia, ocra, bottle, petroleum, ginger, cobalt, sangria, amber and lime shades, the collection also comes with a matching basin and vanity unit.

Burlington Baths

Burlington Baths has taken inspiration from the classic bygone era of great British bathroom design and incorporated it into its own. Choose from the smooth silhouettes of the Medici Batello Grande bath or the sleek period styling of the Medici cloakroom basin for a traditional finish that fits within all room sizes and schemes.


The new cast-iron Avon bath from Drummonds features industrial-style rivets for a modern twist on the classic. Finished in polish and lacquer, it is made to order with other options including raw metal, primed metal or bespoke painted. The freestanding bath is made using traditional manufacturing processes, beginning with casting the raw iron and finishing several weeks later with a dry fit enamelling.

Victoria + Albert Baths

The new Napoli freestanding bath from Victoria + Albert Baths is inspired by a single piece of shell to create a teardrop shape. The simple design offers rimless bathing and a low step-in height for comfort. There are 194 shades on offer, across the brand’s entire range of modern and traditional styles, in either a choice of matt or gloss finishes.


The Water Jewels freestanding baths by VitrA form part of their decorative collection of sanitaryware. Featuring VitrA’s antislip technology it is practical, too, and available in a luxury gold finish.

Water Baths of Ashbourne

New to the Water Baths of Ashbourne range is their Evolve collection. Made from durable quartz and limestone composite, the Coast Corner Set bath is polished for a smooth finish. Silhouettes and curves found in nature inspired this organically shaped design.
