The Victorians were on to something when they came up with footed tubs. A century later, the shapely soakers still intrigue with their fancy footwork.
Footed tubs may have been a way for the Victorian elite to flaunt their indoor plumbing, but the furniture-like look is well suited to today's baths.
An elegant freestanding soaking tub perfectly reflects the relaxed style of this bath.
This modern footed tub is perfectly placed to create a peaceful symmetry. Two sitting chairs overlook the tub, the centerpiece of this bathroom's design.
Hefty brass feet provide a transition between the earthy, textured slate floor and the pristine porcelain of the tub.
This soaking tub is bathed in natural light. The sunny setting is intimate, yet still open and airy.
If you want legs to really stand out, go for contrast, such as light-colored claw feet on a black tub or like here, shiny chrome legs set against a white tub exterior.
This reproduction claw-foot tub is 18 inches longer than vintage models, making it more comfortable for soaking. The average person is much taller now than they were a century or two ago.
Even in the 1800s, footed tubs stepped beyond porcelain white. On this modern descendant, the rich rusty-brown exterior extends to the feet, streamlining the look.
Placed at an angle -- as you might do with a sofa -- this vintage tub breaks up the angular room. The tub was restored and painted to play off the beach-glass blue walls.
With a sweeping shape, black exterior, and chrome legs, this modern footed tub is a graphic focal point.
