Today’s Crush: Gold/Brass/Bronze Kitchen Sinks

On Sunday, I went on the Tour of Homes (which is a part of the Cathedral Antiques Show) and in one of the homes, there was this gold sink. I nearly died. And apparently, I’m not the only one because I posted this photo that night on Instagram and people lost their minds. Last I checked it had 96 “likes” which is the most likes any of my photos has ever received.

Anyway, as usual, I started investigating and found these gold, brass, bronze and copper beauties from an Italian company called Restart:

Dying.

Obviously, flying to Florence to visit the showroom (not to mention the logistics involved in shipping) is not a realistic option for most people so I did some more research for stateside sources.

I found two. First, there are these great looking ones from a company in Idaho called Rocky Mountain Hardware:

These run between $8,500 and $16,000.

At the lower end, I found these from homeclick.com:

These are priced between $1,200 and $2,000.

This is one of those things I never knew I wanted but now that I’ve seen it has me asking myself “Why do I not have one?!” Have you seen one in the flesh? Thoughts?

    I just installed Rocky Mountain Hardware gold sink and fixtures in my bathroom–and they are so gorgeous. A beautiful gold/bronze patina that is the centerpiece of our remodel. So gorgeous.

    Love! But here’s a (dumb) question-
    That high end sink with the three sinks- little skinny one in the middle- what is that for? Looks like it would fit one of those deep fat fryer baskets…. Pray tell?

    Hi are these sinks resistant to soap bleach and hot water, i.e will these tarnish? Are they lacquered afterwards or just waxed.

    please email me and let me know..

Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
