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:
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?
