Bathtub Seating

The internet is now as littered with sofas made from salvaged bathtubs as salvage yards are littered with bathtubs. Regardless of actual comfort or design taste, these repurposed tubs stem from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring Audrey Hepburn.

The contemporary eco designer Reestore offers their version for $3150...

...and the as seen on HGTV flavourdesign sells theirs (with pillows) for $3500.

However, the most progressive versions come from a Spanish collective lead by the Montoya brothers called TrashFormaciones. Their design features a higher seat that allows for the piece to participate as a side chair and gives a chance of seriously being considered furniture, rather than just mere folk art.
