Wet Decadence From Italy With Love
Design by Devon & Devon
Devon & Devon started in 1945 as a flooring material distributor, but my how they’ve grown. They dig on drawing inspiration from the past which is easy to see in all those sensuous curves of iron and porcelain. According to their website they are attempting to transform the bathroom into “a place dedicated to the cult of private well being with a range of timeless products inspired by the most elegant and distinguished European traditions.” Awesome.
D&D calls the the tub above, "The Admiral." If you were going to join the Navy, wouldn’t you want to be an admiral or at least have access to the admiral’s tub? Sure you would. Who wouldn’t? So here is your cast-iron bath cleverly disguised as copper. Not sure how they pull that off but you have to say the look is stunning and very sexy.
A double-backed beauty that implores both of you to get in there. Devon invokes the phrase “fin de siècle” in it’s description of the Cherie tub. Translated as “end of the century,” I’m pretty sure they are referencing the irresistible combination of opulence and decadence prevalent in France during the late 1800’s as opposed to the Ramones song – but I’m just guessing. Anyway, with this tub, DD “guarantees a pleasant and comfortable bath time experience.” I'd bet on that.
The Double D folks also offer sinks to go with their tubs. Check out the generous volume of The Blues Console. The porcelain bowl is presented on pyramidal shaped legs. Then the whole she-bang is wrapped in some chrome plated gills that take us back to late 1950’s Buicks. If you like the sink, they also have a bidet and WC to go with it.
