Utilizing the classic ship hull construction, the German design company Alegna has constructed a series of stunning hardwood bathtubs. Utilizing a variety of hardwood know for its unique grain and impeccable color, Alegna has found a home for wood in the linoleum-dominated bathroom.

Alternating between lacquered and matte finishes, Alegna has turned out an impressive assortment of wooden wash basins. Everything from sinks to soakers are constructed using premium hardwoods like wenge and mahogany. Rich and high in contrast, these bathroom accessories alternate beautifully from light to dark. Polished to a gorgeous sheen, these tubs resemble pools of melted chocolate curved into logic-defying shapes. Velvety smooth and inviting, these basins have twice the appeal and warmth than your usual porcelain numbers.

Sure to melt away stress like no other luxury soaker, these hardwood bathtubs add an unexpected twist to the classic form of home meditation.
