Porcelain enameling, the process of applying ground glass to hot metal, has been used for ornament for hundreds of years, but it wasn't until about 120 years ago that manufacturers figured out how to fire it onto heavy cast iron. By the 1920s cast iron was by far the most popular material for sinks. Early models were supported in front by iron legs, shaped to resemble furniture legs. Of course they were all white, as befit the national mania for antiseptic surfaces.
In an attempt to slyly blend in with its lustrous brass backsplash, this high-glam sink does just the opposite. The harmonious relationship between the backdrop and the faucet sparks instant allure. Coupled with abstract art and the most beautiful shade of olive green, this contemporary organic scheme, designed by Naked Kitchens, is one worth recreating.
Even the tiniest sinks should be privy to the same thought and care. Sticking with a paired-down terrazzo, this teeny speckled wash space by Signorino for SMAK Food House in Australia is one dreamy way to approach a smaller-than-average sink without overwhelming the senses. Designer and textile connoisseur Veronica Hamlet’s ultra-chic Michigan cookhouse is a lesson in embracing black and white, the bohemian way. The breathtaking veins that grace both her kitchen backsplash and deep marble sink impart an added sense of dimension and movement.
