Free Standing Bath, New Jersey, USA
Product: Pleasance Plus ‘Slipper Bath’
Client: Holly Rickert, Interior Designer
In 2010, the American interior design company Ulrich Inc. won a commission to design a large bathroom for a luxury private residence in New Jersey. The lead designer on the project was Holly Rickert, who proposed a scheme that made striking use of stone, wood and other natural materials.
For the centrepiece of her design, she chose the Pleasance Plus from Cabuchon Bathforms, a free standing bath that offered the requisite combination of aesthetics, function and comfort. Since the bath would be hand-built, she was also able to request a degree of customisation, including the deliberate omission of an overflow. The scheme proved to be a great success and it went on to win three separate award categories in the 2011 National Kitchen & Bath Association Design Competition – including Best Bathroom, Best Large Bathroom and the People’s Pick award.
