i saw one also once, forget if it was in a magazine or tv or ******. i remember it looked pretty cool and it was very rectangular in shape. didn't look very comfortable....if you do find a pic of it i would love to see it again.

The usual problem is the drain. Wedi (I think) makes a roman tub ready to be tiled.

When I lived in Japan, this was the most common type of tub. I don't know how they did it but it is probably the same as tiling in a pool. It takes special materials.

The Roman tub was a feature as far back as I can remember of certain higher-end homes. The old school method was either a metal (copper) pan or a hot-mopped asphalt liner. Either waterproofing scheme then received a full mud bed. No more leak prone than a tile shower of 100 years ago.

I have seen one ceramic tiles around a bathtub that give bathroom with aesthetic appeal. Tiles with modified, unique surfaces create a great texture around the bathtub that is unexpected.
