Charleston, SC, February 09, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The HGTV team has selected a Victoria & Albert Marlborough slipper tub for the master bathroom in its 2009 Dream Home Giveaway™.
A focal point of the elegant master bathroom of the HGTV Dream Home, the stand-alone Marlborough by Victoria & Albert is a classic, double-ended slipper tub based on an authentic Victorian design. Also featured in the Dream Home master bath is the Victoria & Albert Lido faucet stand. Both are made of ENGLISHCAST™, a unique mixture of limestone and resins.
The HGTV website calls the master bath the home’s “most dramatic space,” while 2009 Dream Home designer Linda Woodrum comments, “You walk in and see that tub in that niche — I think it’s to die for, a wonderful shape.”
"We are extremely proud and flattered that the HGTV team chose a Victoria & Albert bathtub for the Dream Home 2009,” says Karl Schuele, sales manager for Victoria & Albert’s U.S. headquarters. “The HGTV Dream Home is nationally known as a style-setter and superb example of quality homebuilding products and interiors. We couldn’t have asked for a better compliment than to be featured in the master bathroom, one of the most important spaces in modern homes.”
The HGTV Dream Home is the cable network Home & Garden Television’s annual project house and sweepstakes. This year’s giveaway is a 3,700-square-foot Victorian-style house in Sonoma, California valued at $2 million.
