Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann’s designs for interiors use rich materials to create extravagant spaces. This design for an expansive bathroom features a massage bed and dressing table in marble with gold mosaic details. A long rug spans the width of the room, and stairs from it descend into a sunken marble bathtub. For Ruhlmann, fashion’s purpose was to display wealth, and this luxurious interior would only have been available to the very elite.
