The Papillon Bathtub from Stone Forest is made from your choice of carrara marble, black granite or limestone. It's basically a sculpture you can soak in. In fact, Luxist tells us, "The rounded form and sweeping rim is relaxing and makes me think of gently moving water, and it's nicely both functional as a bathtub and beautiful as a sculpture."
Implications - Instead of going for processed/manufactured designs, many consumers are going after more natural looks when it comes to decorating the home. With society focused on eco-conscious lifestyles, naturalistic products are high in demand. The combination of contemporary designs and earthy tones/materials will be a style brands will adapt in the future to bring consumers an eco-friendly product reflective of modern times.
