Stone centerpieces that will elevate any bathroom

Stone centerpieces that will elevate any bathroom
Stone can be used to create a modern feel, or achieve a farmhouse look, making it an incredibly versatile way to enhance your bathroom. Most importantly anyone incorporating stone into their designs will be aiming to add a natural essence to their home.
 
Country lovers and townies alike need the relaxing and organic feeling stone provides. It provides sanctuary, a return to our roots and there’s nowhere better to get back to nature than in the bathroom.
 
So if it’s stone you’re after here are some ideas on how to bring the outside in with some sculpted bathroom features:
 
Rock Crystal Bathtubs and Basins - Baldi
This bathtub is made out of one single block of rock crystal, and so is the basin. The 10,000 kg crystal rock of the bathtub comes from the Amazonian rainforest. The real beauty of the bathtub is that Baldi’s creative director, Luca Bojola, decided to keep the outside of the bathtub raw and only carved out the inside.
 
So the end result is an enormous, (almost) totally natural crystal stone standing in your bathroom - imagine the wow factor!

Ovum - Franchi Umberto Marmi
By giving this bathtub its soft, organic shape, Ovum wanted to make a tribute to nature. The harmony between the authentic stone veins and the movement of water is exquisite. One could even believe that the stone has always been like this, and hasn’t been touched by human hands.

Nuvola & Hydra - Dedalo Stone
The soft edges of these two pieces are heaven! The first one, Hydra from the Cristalli Collection, was designed by Dedalo Stone. The glass on the sides makes it very special - the piece actually looks nothing like a bath! The second one, Nuvola, from the Collection Nuvole, was designed by Elia Devoti. Both are available in six different marbles, ranging from the blue Bardiglio Nuvolato to the red Rosso Collemandina.

Gemstone Bath Sculpture - Guidero and Gemstone Applied Art
As its name suggests, this object is quite different from a regular bathtub. It is a unique sculpture. Actually, it is a unique specimen. It’s made from a single block of labradorite - gemstone from the volcanoes of Madagascar (weighing 18,000 kg!) - which gives it those gorgeous orange, green, yellow, red and blue colours. This masterpiece was created by Jan-Carel Koster.
