Victoria + Albert’s Tombolo bath rack – a luxury finishing touch

Victoria + Albert offers tips for creating an indulgent, spa-like bathroom.

The bathroom can be the last retreat from the busy modern world and the demands of always-on technology. But the space must feel immediately calm, comfortable and relaxing.

Choosing the best products and adding the right finishing touches will ensure a serene and spa-like experience. Here, Victoria + Albert brand manager Emma Joyce offers her advice.

“A spa bathroom should appeal to all the senses,” she said. “Gentle lighting, warm surfaces and a perfumed atmosphere immediately put the body at ease.

“At the heart of a luxury bathroom should be a freestanding bath. This immediately invites the idea of a deep, indulgent soak.

“Victoria + Albert baths are made from Volcanic Limestone and are warm to the touch. They maintain the water temperature for longer than steel baths, encouraging a longer bath. Specify in our new matt finish for a velvety smooth surface that diffuses the light.

“Natural materials in the bathroom create a sense of harmony. Victoria + Albert’s Tombolo bath rack is made from a uniquely shaped and sculpted wooden board.

“As well as being pleasing to the eye and to the touch, it is designed for practicality, with a wide flat surface and two holes for wine glasses. The Tombolo is available in two sizes to fit most freestanding baths, and three finishes: white, oak and walnut.

“Colour is all important and, of course, Victoria + Albert baths and basins can be specified in any of 199 RAL exterior colours, in gloss or matt.

“Our second colour collaboration with Wallpaper* magazine will be launched next month, proposing three stunning new bathroom palettes. Keep an eye on the Wallpaper* website or our own (www.vandabaths.com) for more details, or email us at the address below and we will send you our special guide when it is published.”
