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 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.

Boat Shaped Bathtub

Do you love the look of a free-standing tub but feel like they are all too similar in shape? If so, then this sleek tub from Zone of Absolute Design (ZAD) is for you.

Funamori Bathtub | KitchAnn StyleDesigned by Rossella Sblendorio for ZAD, the Funamori tub draws its inspiration from the small wooden sushi boats used in Japanese restaurants. The name, Funamori, by definition means  a boat wrap, or a style of  sushi shaped like a boat to contain items that would fall off of regular nigiri-sushi. Also known as Gunkan maki, kakomi sushi.



The Funamori tub is made from Adamantx, an innovative solid surface composite resin developed and produced in Italy. It is offered in three colors and in either matte or gloss finish.

After a grueling week of work wouldn’t it be wonderful to come home and drift off to zen-like relaxation in your Funamori tub?
