Functioning on the motto “making wellness a way of life” and finding inspiration in the history and tradition of the Moroccan hammam ritual, Mr. Steam creates steam baths, showers and even towel warmers for commercial projects (their list of hotel clients reads like a Condé Nast Traveller Hot List) as well as residential projects. Installation requires a licensed plumber and an electrician for obvious reasons, but what you might not expect is that a basic system starts at just about $1,200. There are bells and whistles, though—chromotherapy, music and aromatherapy—that can be added to create an even more indulgent home spa experience.
Hammams, or steam rooms, have existed for thousands of years (think Aztecs and ancient Romans) and remain a popular cultural experience around the globe, especially in Japan and Scandinavia. The process not only cleanses but also detoxifies the body; it’s relaxing and replenishing, something you can read more about by clicking here. Mr. Steam bathrooms are the epitome of healthy living but the company realized there was one very special way they could enhance the experience: luxury bath products. With that, Tala Bath & Body was born. “We wanted to complete the circle,” says Martha Orellana, Vice President of Marketing for Mr. Steam, “by bringing a true Moroccan spa experience home.” The line, which was inspired by a visit to a spa in the Atlas Mountains, includes a clay mask, a creamy soap made with black olives and eucalyptus, a specially designed glove to be used with the soap, argan oil for the body, and an argan-infused face cream. “It’s your own mini spa, everyday,” Orellana adds. Each product is available individually but Mr. Steam has created a beautifully packaged gift box ($225)—it’s the perfect surprise for mom this Mother’s Day. Stop by our Santa Monica or Pasadena showrooms to purchase the set. Ensuring her comfort and well being is a wonderful way to show how much you care about her.
From everyone at Snyder Diamond, we wish you a joyous, fun and love-filled Mother’s Day!
