Memorial Day

In Observance of Memorial Day we honor the brave men and women who serve our country and those who gave their lives to preserve our freedom.

In Observance of Memorial Day

“It is tragic that young lives must be sacrificed, that great sums must be spent for the instruments of war, when the work of peace awaits man’s accomplishment in every land. America today–as in past years–is prepared to join in that work with any nation whose devotion is to peace with its neighbors, and a better life for its people. ” – President Lyndon B. Johnson, Prayer for Peace, Memorial Day, 1966

The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.

New Smaller Free-Standing Tubs

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 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.
