After an indulgent soak in one of these free-standing baths, your cares will simply wash away.

A luxury feminine cast iron bath from Kohler Reve.

1. The luxury bath

Skilled artisans have used a 139-year heritage in metalwork to produce a new range of free-standing, contemporary, enamelled cast-iron baths. Kohler’s Rêve cast-iron free-standing bath, with its mix of traditional metal casting techniques and minimalist streamlined styling, offers a deeply luxurious bathing experience for 21st century bathrooms. While a nod to vintage materials and handcrafts, it is a very sleek, modernist design with geometric, faceted lines, a wider back ledge for generous storage and elevated plinth. The richly enamelled cast iron retains the water temperature for longer than many other free-standing baths. This bath measures 1700mm x 800mm. kohler.com.au, tradelink.com.au, mico.com.au
