Have you Cabrits’ed lately?
Victoria ⊕ Albert create not just a tub, but an experience. If you’re skeptical, take a look at pictures I snapped while in their London showroom during September, 2012′s Blog Tour. Let’s start with the striking atrium of the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour, London. I shot this photo just outside the Victoria ⊕ Albert Showroom.
What makes a V ⊕ A tub so special, a stand alone in the industry? And I mean stand alone in more ways than one; Victoria ⊕ Albert is a British company that produces free-standing tubs and basins which are crafted from 100% QUARRYCAST®, a proprietary blend of naturally white volcanic limestone and high performance resins. The finish on these tubs is extraordinary!
Not only is the Cabrits tub a work of art that envelopes the bather, it is composed of a single seamless piece! Truly fine craftsmanship!
The Cabrits tub is unique as it is contoured for the human body. With a raised center, it supports your legs from beneath the knees. Most notably is the back of the tub which is in somewhat of a reclining position, making it possible for even tall men to stretch their legs out vs. a cramped position. The reclining position also lends itself to an amazingly relaxing state that some bloggers took advantage of even without filling it with hot soapy water. I too sampled the tub and it was quite nice. I mean, really, it didn’t even wrinkle the clothing on the gentleman in the tub. Must be The Carraway Concept.
Victoria ⊕ Albert has a vast and amazing selection of tubs and basins for every style, from clean and contemporary to classic and claw foot.
Here’s some more beautiful images and information about the Cabrits and white volcanic limestone.
What better way to ‘wrap’ up a Cabrits experience. Why with a luxurious and authentic Turkish Towel Shawl Collar Terry Bathrobe!
A very big thank you to Modenus, a designer’s resource, for bringing 14 bloggers from around the world (especially me) to London along with sponsors like Victoria ⊕ Albert, who made us feel so genuinely welcome!
