This is the bath tub that I would like to have in my bath room, except it is ten times outside of my budget. Maybe just go over to Loft 523 in New Orleans to try it out and call it a day. I actually like both of the bathtubs made by them -Apage of Italy. The Woodline has a little bit of a Japanese look to it. The closest distributor I can fine is Moss in NYC SoHo. A short update: I think I must be really in turn with the current culture. I wrote the note above before I saw the current issue of "Dwell" magazine. What's in it? an article on baths. And they picked out 5 hot bath tubs, and the two above are of course in their top five. I think I should switch job to the retail world.
