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.
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.
Black on black on black has never looked better. The secret to this high-impact scene? Consistency. In addition to the coordinating countertops and backsplash, we love that the interior of this perfectly square sink follows suit. Only a tiny brass faucet gives away the sink’s discreet location.
