Keep in mind that no choice is radically wrong. Our forebears were apt to use any number of materials, depending on available local resources, and these all changed over intervening decades. However, you can make some assumptions based on region (heavy stone was expensive to ship from New England quarries, for instance) and technology (stainless steel wasn't widely available until the 1940s).
Yes, soapstone and slate sinks were found in farmhouses, but probably not in the Midwest or on the West Coast. Soapstone is quarried exclusively in Vermont (although some today come from Brazil). Slate has more widespread sources, along the Appalachians in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Vermont, and Maine.
The shabby-chic movement has inspired a mecca of kitchen trends. Chief among them, reigns the farmhouse sink. Up there with granite countertops, super islands, and stainless steel appliances, the farmhouse sink slowly become a staple in cookie-cutter homes with a rustic flair. But what if we told you there’s more to sink design than this standard and expected go-to?
