Rub A Dub Dub

For a rustic take on the bathtub, may we suggest copper?

It’s a natural material, looks fetching (and will match nicely with your earrings).

A freestanding copper bathtub is a sure-fire way to add drama, and frankly, is a sumptuous place for a soak. Copper bathtubs were a favourite of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Today, they’re still the no-fuss, “anti-technology” bathtub, whose colour and crafting imparts warmth.

Turn on the hot water, slide into a copper bath and the metal’s high conductivity will have the surface already warmed. Your search for a heavenly bath? You’re getting warmer. Warmer. Warmer. You’re hot!

Click nativetrails.net for a list of showrooms throughout Canada. The maker offers two freestanding tubs, both handcrafted of recycled copper. (Also available in brushed nickel.) The tubs are $10,600 to $27,500. Pictured is the Aspen tub ($19,700).
