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.
A common companion for stainless steel sinks was laminates. The Formica Company developed its first light-colored faux wood-grain laminates in 1927, and their popularity grew as the material became more water- and heat-resistant. In the seven years following World War II, about one-third of new kitchens were dressed in Formica. Into the '60s, laminates continued marching pinkly around American sinks. Today at least one company, Wilsonart, will match old laminate patterns by scanning them and reproducing them digitally.
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.
