Exotic and Beautiful Stone Sinks

 

Some of the most beautiful of today's bathroom fixtures are natural stone sinks. Perfectly suited to stylish powder rooms or retreat-like master baths, these sinks are truly unique because the stone in each vessel was actually formed by nature.

The Decolav 1645-O-GBR 16-Inch Round Exotic Vessel Lavatory Sink, Green Brown Onyx is one of the beautiful offerings in StylePath's collection of stone sinks. Handcrafted by artisans, these vessels are made using techniques handed down through generations. This stone of this sink is a green brown onyx, but other colors are also available. One of these exotic designs would be a stunning centerpiece in a powder room or bath.

Contemporary Table Lamp Goes Retro

 

If you're going modern or contemporary in your living room or entry, ceramic table lamps may be the first ones that come to mind, but we've found something that takes retro lamps in an entirely different direction.

First of all, we know about lamps around here, but I didn't have any idea that recycled aluminum could be handspun to make the body of a contemporary table lamp. But, that exactly what Babette Holland did with her Green Striped Gemini Table Lamp. Not only is the body spun aluminum but it's done in brown and green stripes. No two are exactly alike. The designer says they are reminiscent of 1950s drink tumblers. Topped with a gold silk shade, the Gemini Table Lamp is perfect for a modern interior.

Just imagine this lamp or a pair of them on a long sleek table in the foyer? Or, think about showing them off at either end of a cool green or chocolate velvet sofa. This is a retro look that's showing up again in today's rooms.

Square Pedestal Sinks in Timeless Designs

Bathroom sinks have come a long way baby! No longer the utilitarian ugly ducklings of the past, great new square pedestal sinks take the look of classic pedestal sinks to new heights of design.

The Kohler Escale Pedestal Sink is one of the new designer square pedestal sinks. Kohler says that the Escale was "conceived from the form of a sail in the wind and Japanese ceramic tableware design." And it is a perfectly gorgeous sink and on top of that it has great functionality not usually found in a pedestal design. The Escale actually provides room on each side for toiletries. This one is a keeper for sure.

Cheval Mirrors for Every Room

A full length mirror mounted in a metal or wood frame so that it can tilt forward or backward is called a cheval mirror. Antique mirror designs include the beautiful cheval which means support in French--literal translation is "horse." Generally, cheval mirrors are prized for their beauty, but in terms of interior design, they can be tilted to just the right angle to reflect light and provide depth to a space.

The Lourdes Cheval Mirror is a beautiful example of a versatile mirror that can be used in many rooms, from the entry way to the dressing room. Made of sturdy bronze finished metal with a scroll design, its oval shape would make a great addition to an old world or eclectic space.
