This weekend Wetsyle, a Montreal-based manufacturer of premium bath furnishings, is introducing their new W2 brand at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).
“W2 is a new brand of products that is simplified in design, shape and fabrication. It is available at a more modest price point to reach a broader audience of people passionate about beautiful design.” – Mark Wolinsky, Wetstyle president
The W2 brand will include 3 free-standing tubs, 2 of which are designed to fit within the footprint of a traditional soaking tub alcove 60″ long x 30″ deep. This is such great news for remodelers who struggle to find stylish tubs under 60″ in length. Another great feature I like about the tubs is the hidden overflow drain.
The new tubs are made by hand with WETMAR BIO, a proprietary stone composite material that is slip resistant with natural insulating properties.
The W2 Wave Tub is inspired by a gently rolling ocean wave. The elegant lines of this tub will work in both Transitional and Contemporary Bathrooms.
The W2 Straight Tub features tapered lines and rounded corners for a more modern profile.
The W2 Cloud Tub, the largest of the three, has a delicately rolled rim and beautiful lines that give it a timeless transitional look. Incorporating the optional base transforms this tub into a traditional statement piece.
