Visiting quarries across the globe, David Luster, president of Advent Design International, personally selects the boulders that become his company's soaking tubs. They are hand-carved on location by stone masters, placed into custom wood crates, and shipped to the jobsite or home.Available in a variety of styles such as oval, rectangular, or sunken and in stone types such as travertine, limestone, and marble, the tub is usually the largest piece in the bathroom. For example, Luster says an oval tub can measure 78 inches long, 48 inches wide, and 25 inches high.Usually, a phone interview gets the design process started. A customer's size, the design elements of the room, and the desired color and finish of the tub are taken into consideration. Advent Design also offers stone basins, solid stone walls with incorporated basins, 5-foot-by-7-foot solid stone showers with hand-carved etched blue glass, stone benches, and stone vanities.
