Mouse is on a short hiatus while her "thumbs" recovers from a bad fall and subsequent injuries. More beautiful design leads are on their way soon. In the meantime, here's a few shots of a tub we tried out in Miami. Called "Arne" it's by Rapsel and its elegantly shaped high back is a quite cozy, coccoon-like homage to Arne Jacobsen's legendary 1960s Egg Chair. Although taking a siesta in it fully dressed may not be the design's true intention, we found it divine and its classic curves also very serviceable as a purse rest. As for the feel and finish of the tub—an impeccably smooth and matte titanic resin—all hands and paws agree...it's simply alluring. The tub is one of many very well curated designs available at Avant Gallery. With its "wingback" roots, Mouse imagines it equally suited to traditional spaces with a Murano chandelier above.
