Throwing some light on your subject, I guess.

Looks like an older building what with that gorgeous array of tiles. It's an interesting shop for sure. I'm assuming the bathtub is for sale and not necessarily for use by the customers. Of course, if it's a really upscale shop, maybe the customers have to take a bath before they can enter. No? :)

I love the creative feel of these rooms. Wish I had a LOT of money and could decorate like this.

I like the way this place is put together.

A great place, again!

Are the tiles original to the building or are they a display of patterns for sale? They look worn and aged. I'd want a nice soak in that tub but I don't think my presence would be welcomed...

Those tiles are great, handcrafted beauties. We have a local place, Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, that creates really cool handmade tiles.

@Kay: These tiles are very old. You can easily find them for sale in any antique shop in Lisbon, they usually come from buildings that have been torn down (in case they have not been stolen from vandalized buildings, abandoned or not, which is not so uncommon...). Then you can make your own 'patchwork' panel, such as these, but this shop only sells new ones.

Marvellous interiors with the peeling wall and patchwork quilt of tiles.

The bathroom is very original, I think.

Wonder if they ever find a customer staying overnight in that tub. ;-)
