10 Unforgettable Toilets

Choosing a new toilet? Here are some options beyond white porcelain, from whimsical to just plain weird.

Clark Sorenson, maker of the irreverent George Bush toilet, ironically also specializes in whimsical, sculptural urinals that are truly too pretty to use. It's hard to imagine these fixtures gracing the average men's room, but one has to wonder if these unusually shaped styles will make aiming better, or worse?

Hopefully, you don't suffer from shy bladder syndrome, as you could have dozens of tiny eyes watching you from the Fish N' Flush, a real working aquarium that is wrapped around a clear inner water tank.

The Monty Snake Natural standing WC brings to mind James Bond, or at least a great Bond Villian. One wonders what kind of person would find a snake-skin toilet the height of fashion and style. An aggressive one, that's for sure!

This beautiful green onyx toilet is a gorgeous example of the beauty that can come out of the earth. While green onyx is often treated to enhance the green color, the variations in patterns and shades are beautiful nonetheless. Symbolically, green onyx is said to foster achievement-good things both in and out of the bathroom.
