One bathroom crafted by two U.K.-based designers brings a whole new meaning to the term “chocolate” when it comes to home décor.
Bathrooms.com and Choccywoccydoodah chocolatiers have collaborated to create a 100 percent Belgian chocolate bathroom — yes, that’s a bathroom full of edible fixtures — that recently sold online for over $133,000. But don’t worry. You can still buy the set together or in individual pieces.
The Willy Wonka-esque washroom was inspired, Bathrooms.com CEO Ian Monk said, by the common mix-up of the words “suite” and “sweet” in online searches.
“As a consequence of shoppers searching for ‘bathroom sweets,’ ” Monk said, “we decided to answer their search, literally.”
The bathroom, which consists of a bidet, a sink, a toilet and a tub, is made of the equivalent of about 13 years of calories on a 2,000-calorie a day diet, or 9.4 million calories worth of chocolate.
An unlikely pair, Bathrooms.com and Choccywoccydoodah created Bathroomsweets.com to sell the product.
If you are interested in being able to eat where you can excrete, the bathroom set is priced as follows:
Makers said the bathroom sweets last up to six months if kept at room temperature but should not be exposed to sunlight, heat from a radiator or hot water...because they will melt.
