MTCT-140 Elenapr(Atlanta, GA – June 10, 2010)  MTI Baths presents the softer side of modern with Elena, a sensationally versatile freestanding bath.  MTI’s designers have ingeniously finessed some of their popular organic contours in a way that will complement both modern and traditional styles of décor.  The result is a transitional bath ideal for all design styles.

Discriminating homeowners are keenly aware that style and utility are hallmarks of MTI designs.  The Elena embodies all these and more.  This sleek, transitional tub punctuates any bathroom with its artful lines, organic softness and clean good looks.  From avant garde to conventional, Elena marries the best of both in a size that is ideal for renovations and spaces of all kinds.

No matter your sensibilities, style or space, the Elena will sooth away your cares.  The bath is now more than ever, a haven; a personal respite from the rat race of responsibilities.  Close your eyes and sink down into a handcrafted vessel for personal restoration in the utmost comfort and cutting edge style … with a delectably softer side.

Like the other products in MTI’s exclusive Boutique Collection, the Elena models are made in the USA and constructed using MTI’s “ESS” (Engineered Solid-Surface) material, a mixture of ground natural minerals and binding agents that are liquefied, poured and then hardened.  Approximately 60% of the material is organic, including minerals mined from the earth and dirt, making it quite “Green”.  Tough enough to stand up to the rigors of everyday use, MTI’s Elena looks and feels like natural stone.  Because the surface is non-porous, it is naturally resistant to stains.

Available with either a rolled or flat rim, the solid-surface soaker tub comes standard in a White or Biscuit matte finish, and optionally, in gloss finishes of White, Biscuit, Osprey or Raven.  Other convenient options include quick ship/priority; waste and overflow kits in a variety of attractive finishes and cushy pillows in various shapes and sizes.  Elena is a tub for those seeking a smart investment in both form and function that will endure the test of time.

The Elena rolled rim design (MTCT-140) measures 66″ x 31.75″ x 21.75″ and has a soaker weight of 212 lbs. / 96.16 kg.  The Elena 2 (MTCT-141) features a flat rim design, measures 65.75″ x 31.75″ x 21″ and has a soaker weight of 209 lbs. / 4.80 kg.  Retail price for both exquisite models starts at $5,899.
