Former Toilets of the World Headquarters - Arlington, Virginia

Today, for our 50th post, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from the team's former headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.

Over the past couple of years, the team has traveled far and wide collecting photo's of toilets from across the globe. We tirelessly labor over the images, reworking them and researching the location and history of each toilet. We then spend days sifting though this information and creating a blog post for you, our not-so-loyal and apparently extremely-uninterested readers.

Here's a questions we never get asked, but which we have decided to answer nonetheless:

"Your blog is amazing, we love it so much. You are so talented. One question, you always show us toilets from around the world but what does the Toilets of the World team's toilet actually look like?" 

What a good question that would have been if anybody had bothered to ask it. Well anyway, here you have it. The Toilets of the World throne. It looks amazing, and, when you're on it, you feel like a king. All we wanted to add was a scepter and crown but due to budget constraints (your fault!) that never happened.

Thanks for not really supporting us over the past 50 posts. Your lack of feedback and unwillingness to share our posts with your friends mean the world to us.

Best regards,

-- The Toilets of the World

Absinthe Room - Memphis, Tennessee

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from the Absinthe Room in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Toilets of the World team stumbled upon this magnificent bar and billiards room while exploring Beale St back in 2010. Up a dark flight of stairs on the second floor, you'll find this spacious, interestingly decorated bar. Photo's, posters and paintings cover almost every inch of wall space. The large, street facing windows offer great views of the world famous Beale Street below. We were lucky enough to see the Beale Street Flippers going up and down the street for about an hour. A pretty awesome experience while sipping on absinthe and playing pool.

The Absinthe Room has multiple toilets, each decorated differently. This toilet, featuring a very suitable poster by Henri Privat-Livemont (Alphonso Mucha style for those who care) pleased us greatly. Many creatively decorated or themed establishments will forget to extend their theme into the bathroom and this is a real shame. The toilet can be a lonely, boring place with very few distractions. Thankfully the Absinthe Room got it right.
