South American Sinks

July 8, 2017

The USA reigns supreme when it comes to cool light fixtures, at least in the Americas. But plumbing is another story.

Latinos have some pretty cool lavatories. This sink illustrates the point: This cool sink gets its chic from the way it’s made, with back-splash high pieces of scraps of the marble that made the counter.

Cool and cheap, the way I like it.
