Antique and Vintage Inspired Sinks and Faucets
When we started out to design our home, the one thing I knew over probably any other detail, was that I wanted to have built in, architectural + plumbing feature details that stood out as a statement in our home.
And our sinks, faucets + plumbing fixtures continue to be one of the most requested sources.
One of my favorite sinks in our home is this deep basin cast iron beauty in our main powder room, finished off with this really great antique brass faucet. I just loved the patina of both pieces and that they both feel just about as close to vintage as you can get.

Here’s a look at our farmhouse kitchen sink, which has an apron front and a more modern industrial faucet, which for someone that cooks almost every day, I find completely functional. I also like that it can toggle between stream + spray, and the options I have for moving the faucet head around and getting anywhere I need to.
That’s the reason I opted for a single basin vessel as well, instead of a kitchen sink that is separated into two parts. I like the space for washing large pots + pans with room to work around, but I know some folks like the double basin for soaking, hand-washing and rinsing. All things to keep in mind when selecting different fixtures for different rooms.
And finally, this two-faucet cast iron trough sink was the obvious choice for the boys jack-and-jill bathroom that joins their bedrooms. It really couldn’t be any cuter and I kind of love that they still have to use little step stool to reach up to brush their teeth. I also love the little soap dish mount in the center, it just exudes vintage charm.
And finally, our big old laundry room sink is the epitome of the word utility. Here is one place I took the form over function route, as I loved the simple look of the hot and cold faucets running completely separate of each other. But this means that I’m either going all hot or all cold for filling buckets most of the time. But the super deep, single basin is perfect for soaking all those loads of baseball + softball pants that used to be white.
