In the 1920s, an ore with a naturally occurring mix of copper and nickel (with a dash of iron, manganese, silicon, and carbon) was tapped to make Monel, a corrosion resistant, lightweight white metal. Stainless steel, a blend of several different iron and chromium alloys, was studied as early as 1821, but until 1909 no one knew how to make it corrosion resistant. The material took off in the 1940s and '50s, not only for sinks but in countertops.
Not over the classic farmhouse shape? The dramatic marble sink in Jenni Kayne’s Lake Tahoe kitchen puts a fresh spin on tradition. Other rustic elements in the room, like the custom wood cabinetry and painted brick backsplash, give the material new meaning. Without falling into a trap of farmhouse cliches, her luxe space feels contemporary and rural, all at once.
When we think of all the places we want to show our personality in the kitchen, the sink certainly isn’t one of them. Yet, in the same way, a bold range, retro refrigerator, or graphic backsplash brings new meaning (and big style) to the heart of the home, a design-forward sink can also elevate the room.
