High and Dry

The Danish manufacturer Vola, which introduced its modular towel warmer in 2009, now offers an electric version, which became available Stateside this summer. The new T39EL does not require plumbing hookups like its predecessor, which was a water-heated model, and all of the wiring is hidden behind the wall in a built-in unit. The chic rack can be customized with three to 20 bars that can be spaced anywhere from 4 to 12 inches apart, depending on the amount of wall space.  The warming system features a temperature regulator that ranges from 68 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit and a safety mechanism that turns the rack off after two hours at high heat. Pricing starts at $3,970 for a brass three-bar unit in a chrome finish, and the towel warmer also is available in stainless steel.

Available in the U.S. through Hastings Tile & Bath, 212.674.9700, www.hastingstilebath.com
