Designed by the Benedini Associati, the Ufo stainless steel bathtub is a unique addition to any bathroom. In keeping with a more classic style of bathtubs, the Ufo comes standard with a polished stainless steel interior and exterior. But for those of you like me who enjoy the style but prefer a less sterile feel, this tub is also available with a white enamel interior and black enamel exterior.
The Exmar backrest will keep you comfortable as you fill the Ufo up to it’s 232 gallon capacity for a nice sensual bubble bath. You’ll have plenty of room to spread out too as the tub had a large diameter of 78″3/4 x 19″5/8h. The Ufo can be purchased through local suppliers of Agape bathroom products, so be sure to check out the 125/C light fixtures to add that extra special mood lighting to your evening.

So, how would you like your fireplace to be – retro styled, contemporary or Swarovski studded? Yes, you read it right. I am talking about the Swarovski crystal studded fireplace designed by Justen Ladda.

In the case of this model, the two bay windows form a door that allows easy loading and cleaning of the fire pit.
Aquaplus Solutions has launched Aqua Jewels, a luxury bathroom faucet range designed for Bonomi by Marcel Wanders.
Internationally renowned for his collaborations with Droog Design, B&B Italia and Bisazza, multi-award winning Wanders has turned his attention to brassware design including bathroom faucets. The new Aqua Jewels luxury faucet range is characterized by the use of the diamond form throughout and includes basin, bidet, bath faucets and shower fixtures plus complementary accessories.
Each element is adorned with and operated by a chrome plated brass control cut in the shape of a diamond. This contrasts with the simple design of the brassware which is offered in two styles, plain polished or etched, which continues the diamond theme across the body of this luxury bathroom brassware.

Whirlpool has shown of its futuristic “green kitchen” concept in which 60% of the water and heat generated from appliances is “diverted” to fuel other appliances or functions in the eco-kitchen.
Through this integrated use of appliances, with the concept taking its model from the cycle of nature, it optimises the use of heat and water with processes that increase energy efficiency up to 70%.
For example, the kitchen allows you to use the heat produced by the fridge compressor, the only appliance to operate 24 hours a day, to produce hot water for the dishwasher.
Simple changes make a difference too – the refrigerator also uses a fridge “drawer”, instead of the normal cabinet. This new design prevents the cold air from slipping out every time the door opens.
As well as being eco-friendly, the average savings that an owner could make from the kitchen eco-system created to adapt, reduce and recycle water, heat and energy are estimated at 24%.
