In 1857, Louis Herbeau began creating beautiful baths for the great houses of the day. This era of gracious elegance can be seen in the Bathroom Couture line with its period detailing and Old World charm.
French country style decorating is a combination of old world European charm and cottage décor. The term evokes an image of whitewashed walls, sheer lace curtains and mismatched baskets filled with colorful linens, lavender soap and dried flowers. It embodies the use of Provincial prints, hand-painted tiles, delft china, French toile de Jouy fabric and cozy quilts. The color palette features spring-fresh blues, brilliant bursts of sunflower yellow and subtle garden greens. A French Country style bathroom would complement the adjoining bedroom, bright and sunny like a summer farmhouse.
You can bring back the art of bathing with the Herbeau Creations classic cast iron tub and transform your bathroom space into a relaxing French Country decorating style. The white classic style bathtub "Josephine" features sculptured metal feet and authentic cast iron construction, combining luxury with vintage appeal. You can customize the look of the claw foot tub with a metal or hand-painted finish for the feet and a hand-painted design on the tub. The Josephine claw foot bathtub can be ordered with any of the Herbeau 12 hand-painted patterns.
