Centre of attention

Kyton by Varenna is a bright, natural contemporary kitchen that's technically developed. Finishes include embossed lacquered, glossy lacquered, wood and glass (frosted or glossy). Varenna Kitchens are available in Hong Kong through ViA. www.viahk.biz

The art of cooking

Kitchen looking a tad drab? Valcucine, an Italian company, has perfected a technique to inlay art on glass cabinets, a labour-intensive process. Each Artematica Vitrum Arte cabinet is hand crafted, with thin layers of hand-cut and coloured film placed, piece-by-piece, into the glass. Valcucine landed in Hong Kong this year, so drop by its flagship store in Happy Valley. www.valcucine.com

Foam home

Always wanted a bathroom like the one at your favourite resort in Bali? The Ambrosia collection by MAAX can deliver just that. The tub has a built-in water purifier, a multi-jet massage system and integrated handles and handrails for easy, safe entrance. It's available as either a drop-in unit or a stand-alone traditional tub. www.maaxcollection.com

Sea sure

This bathroom designed for Teuco by Giovanna Talocci takes minimalist pleasure to the extreme. The classic Seaside 640 outdoor recessed bathtub incorporates a lower-body massage jets, while relaxing in a comfortable seated position. At the foot of the outdoor tub design, cushions provide a comfortable spot to stretch out under an open sky. Ambient lighting surrounds the tub perimeter, while two underwater lights and a lit waterfall complete the illuminated water experience. www.taloccidesign.com
