    The days of bathtubs cloaked in tile are over. Today's shapely tubs stand alone, naked and unashamed of their curves—such as this oak-accented number from Amsterdam's Studio Thol.

    Statement Lights

    Increasingly interior designers are looking up—toward the ceiling, that is. The wealth of statement-making light fixtures make it possible. Take, for instance, the trumpet-like Botti fixture from Delightfull. Its exhuberent form will have you whistling a happy tune as soon as you walk through the door.

    Also from Delightfull, the larger-than-life Diana floor lamp. At a little more than 90 inches tall, this oversize piece is goddess worthy.
