Victoria + Albert Unleashes a New Spectrum of Colors for Its Englishcast Freestanding Tub Line
White and chrome often commandeer the palette in the bathroom. But like stepping out of black-and-white Kansas into Technicolor Oz, Victoria + Albert has unleashed a new spectrum of colors for Englishcast, the British brand’s line of freestanding tubs and basins made from volcanic limestone and resin. Formerly limited to six standard shades, designers can now personalize fixture exteriors with a choice of 194 RAL colors. The multilayered process uses specially catalyzed paint and hand-polishing, making the finish deeper in tone and more durable than hand-painted surfaces. Factor in gloss or matte options across various models, such as Pescadero, Monaco, and Napoli, and it adds up to 28,000 possibilities for tubs and 5,000 for basins.
