Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 19, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Known for designing the world’s most exquisite bathroom fixtures, meticulously crafted from gemstones such as amethyst, rock crystal and malachite, the Florence-based company has for over 100 years been dedicated to Italian style and Florentine craftsmanship, creating legendary pieces reminiscent of the grandest European palaces.
‘Baldi bathtubs are truly jewels for the home,” says Luca Baldi, CEO of Baldi. “Each bathtub is comparable to a Renaissance creation, a work of art and craft that testifies to the beauty of Nature meeting Design. Only three bathtubs have been made until today and they were all carved from solid blocks found in the Brazilian Amazon Forest by our scouts. All of them are one-of-a-kind, as it is the Nature that is ruling the design.”
Baldi recently sold a bathtub carved from a single 10-ton Amazonian crystal to socialite Tamara Ecclestone for $1,000,000. The three-person tub was sculpted with diamond cuts, while the partial rough edges of the tub enhance the natural beauty of the living crystal. A similar rock crystal tub will be available in some of the Sapphire villas at XXII Carat Villas on the Palm Jumeriah.
Other Baldi baths at XXII Carat Villas Dubai will be carved from rose quartz and green quartz with gold trim, using ad-hoc gemstones to create rare and prestigious bathrooms fit for royalty.
XXII Carat Villas is a development of 22 villas offering the ultimate luxury in beachfront resort-style living on the Palm Jumeirah next to One and Only the Palm. The private beachfront gated community comprises uniquely-designed seven-bedroom villas ranging from 8,000 to 13,000 square feet with dramatic views of the Dubai city skyline.
Developed by The Forum Group, XXII Carat Villas bring the finest European building and finish standards to Dubai.
“We are proud that XXII Carat will be the first to have Baldi’s Jewels for the Home bathtubs, we have scoured Europe for the finest materials and finishes for every aspect of our villas,” says Anton Yachmenev, Managing Director of Forum Group. “We believe the property market in Dubai is ready for the finest quality of construction and interiors set like a diamond in the most superb location on the Palm.”
