Tyrell and Laing's line of large and lovely tubs evoke the timeless allure of natural stone, yet the material that makes these sensual and curvaceous tubs is decidedly modern.
To look at each of the tubs in Tyrell and Laing’s latest line, one would think they were constructed of solid stone, such is their beauty and bulk. In fact, the luxury tubs are not made of pure stone but rather a natural composite—“ a hard wearing smooth composite stone material with the appearance of natural stone without the drawback of excess weight.”
The difference is no small shakes as T and L’s luxury tubs look and feel like stone but are less expensive, less extractive, and, of course, lighter and thus easier to install (or move, should that unpleasantness become inevitable).
The line includes six models, each available in different colors and each possessed of their own special allure. The flagship of the bunch is the Imperia, a massive number in a range of colors and your choice of a matte or polished finish. Other models include the versatile Oceanus, the single-serve Petit, and the earth-friendly Eco, all of which evince a comfortable synergy between utility and indulgence: “warm and sensual to the touch and non-slip—our luxury baths are extremely comfortable to enhance your bathing experience. They are also easy to keep clean and come in a range of colors with a matte or polished finish.”
