Ever feel like you want to drift away in your bath? Well, Dutch designer Wieki Somers has just the thing. Her amazing Bathboat is made of wood and epoxy resin in a limited edition of 30. Since it’s really more of a work of art than a bathroom fixture it will set you back about $25,000. (PFD’s not included)
From Wieki Somers website:
Floating in the water and bathing in the water deal with so much similar feelings and elements that they are combined in one installation. By turning a small boat inside out it becomes a bath. The bath tub legs make you think of the wooden frame on which the boat usually rests when at the dock.
The Bath Boat turns out to be a vehicle on dry land where the mind can drift away or drift home after a full day of shiploads of information. It will wash away the dust of the city.

From Design Within Reach:
A rope knot, or monkey’s fist, has traditionally been used to weight the end of a heaving line being thrown from a ship to a dock. Such knots have also been stuffed into cracks for use as rock-climbing anchors. As doorstops or bookends, these handcrafted knots continue to serve a useful purpose while maintaining their nautical feel. The loop handle is useful for carrying the Rope Doorstop from room to room. No chemicals or bleach have been added to the Manila rope, which is a high-quality natural fiber that comes from the easily renewable Abaca plant. The fiber from this plant is very durable and resistant to salt water damage, making the Rope Doorstop suitable for outdoor use. Made in England. Weight: 4.5lbs. Price was $98.00 Now: $83.30
