We have to start with the nearly $40,000 for a bathtub.

That is what we call a piece of art.

When you have guests in your house, why the price of this.

You have to have the stone, you have the quarry.

You can choose any type of marble.

You cut it with a laser.

It takes six people six days fully occupy on the bathtub and you manually polish it.

A lot goes into this.

How much does something like this way?

It is being quarried.

It is like a piece of sculpture.

We sell five to 10 a year.

This is over the top of the line products.

This is to the kitchen and bath.

The sisters part of the offering.

Have you actually seen this particular bath.

I just came back from spain last week where we had an international exhibition.

This is one of the pieces in the series.

It is not wood.

This is one of my favorites.

This is a convenient style.

This is a manufacturer.

This is imitation of hardwood.

No cleaning, no maintenance.

No warning about it.

You can use it on the outside.

You can have the finished . what prompted the company to come out with this?

I think it is technology.

If you think about this, you think about your grandmothers.

That was more of a building material.

The new technology is allowing us to come up with new designs, textures, imitations of wallpaper.

Your new technology is allowing you to do laser cut countertops.

Tell us about the kitchen collections.

We are very excited about this collection.

These are the highest and kitchen furniture where we have a new laser technology for the doors so you can have a seamless catch.

You can have a more versatile kitchen.

People are worried about the storage.

Also practical.

They look almost space-age.

We have had sales in the past few years.

The market is also responding.

I want to thank you for sharing the details with us.
