lasting value to their homes. Lasertron is ahead of this trend with their artist-


designed etched stainless steel cabinetry doors. The innovative collection provides a new creative outlet for artists and designers alike, taking art off the wall and blending it into cabinetry for interest and intrigue. Send in a favorite painting or graphic, and the company will custom-etch the signature work of art onto any selection of stainless steel cabinetry door fronts. The exciting new series has made its debut featuring the talents of renowned abstract artist Sharon Westbrook, recognized and collected worldwide, featured on PBS and in Florida Architecture magazine.


Haute hardware In 2011 it’s all about the details, and decorative


hardware continues to evolve with collections that add instant style and classic good looks for you to enjoy, such as Atlas Homewares’ new Browning and Shelley collections, both named after England’s most famous poets.

work harder and longer without concern for our health or stress levels. Fortunately, a growing awareness of wellness is counteracting this with a line of products for the bathroom that creates a spa-like retreat using personalized therapies. From soaking tubs and air baths to aromatherapy and steam showers, consumers are appreciating the technology that allows them to bring rejuvenating treatments into the privacy of their own homes. Bain Ultra’s Vedana system is the first product of its kind to focus on wellness. It doesn’t dispense water in any form but instead is a care center that provides five unique therapies designed to help people release stress and find their inner calm. More and more companies are joining this exciting trend to re-think the bathroom from a grooming center to a space devoted to peace and wellbeing. l

Seeing double Why have just one when you can have two? Consumers


are expanding their expectation for double sinks in the master bath to include double vanities as well as matching freestanding tubs. The idea of two vanities just makes sense — twice the storage, twice the personal space — but the concept of double baths is a new idea that is rapidly gaining ground. Victoria & Albert set the stage with its side-by-side Amalfi bathtubs. Having two tubs in a single bathroom is both luxurious and practical. Not only does it make a striking visual statement and add symmetry to the space, it also creates a private retreat where couples can bathe together in comfort without having to take turns or compromise.
