| Designbest editorial staff


he latest interpretation of wellness can be seen in this retro yet exquisitely contemporary space. This bathroom brings the together the architecture of the past with the clean and dynamic lines of modern design. On the one side, there is the wood paneled wall which recalls antique French style; on the other side, there is a freestanding bath, a remnant of 19th century taste, revisited in a modern key. The washbasin area brings it all together with suspended square furniture, softened by a creamy color and loop handles, and a modern chair dressed in black. The result is a room filled with intimacy and wellness among luxurious memories and modern taste.

The suspended furniture.

With drawers under the washbasin and two side columns, the storage units take up the lower part of the wall but are suspended in order to give a greater sense of elegance to the room.

The wall covered in wood evokes the atmospheres of the 17th century and adds the right family atmosphere to the bathroom.
