A New Freestanding Tub Defined by Classic Elegance.
Leading luxury bath manufacturer Victoria & Albert has added an elegant new classic bath to its range of premium bath products. The Toulouse is the first premium design bath to be added to the company's Classical Collection which includes traditional bath styles such as the York and Cheshire.
â€œThe addition of Toulouse brings a new, traditional, dimension to the premium baths,â€ says Edward Taylor, CEO for Victoria & Albert. â€œIt gives our premium dealers a product for top end customers who want a more traditional look. The Toulouse is really a crossover product, at home in either a traditional or contemporary setting.
Toulouse is inspired by French double-ended bateau baths first seen in the 1860â€™s. These original baths were made from tinned copper, had seams and must have been rather uncomfortable to sit in - and certainly very difficult to clean. Toulouse is made using ENGLISHCASTÂ®, our unique material which is rich in natural volcanic limestone, warm to the touch and very easy to care for - accidental scratches can simply be polished out.â€
The Toulouse bath is 71.5" long, 31.5" wide and 28.25" deep and features a technologically advanced, streamlined built-in overflow. A new waste kit in the same minimalist design as existing waste kits has been developed for use with the overflow. The suggested retail pricing for Toulouse is $5,000 in the US; $5,500 in Canada. Victoria & Albertâ€™s Tubo range of luxury bath fillers complements the bath perfectly and allows premium retailers to offer customers a complete package.
