Contemporary Wooden Bathroom Sinks by Boat Builders?
Wooden sinks, virtually nonexistent not so long ago, are showing up and showing off. A natural inspiration from the outdoors, wood is a sensible option so long as it’s quiet, attractive and ages well.
Unique Wood Designs Concept
Jumping from boatbuilding to creating washbasins is an unusual production path, unless your company is the forward-thinking Unique Wood Designs. Looking to the future after 30 years in the water, they came ashore to design handcrafted wooden sinks with the carpentry and technology originally formulated for their vessels. The gorgeous linear sink above is crafted from sapele, a reddish-brown wood much like mahogany and native to tropical Africa.
Layers of wood coating are applied to produce a waterproof, antibacterial and scratch-resistant surface. Aesthetically, the intensity of the wood grain is enhanced with every layer. Results speak volumes. The double sinks above are handmade of maple and the handsome corner sink below is created from American walnut.
Envision an Image
The Image line by Unique Wooden Sinks includes models made from iroko and maple woods. The iroko tree grows on the west coast of Africa. It is nicknamed African Teak, resembling teak in color and grain, although not in its family. And not nearly as expensive. The wood is similarly durable and dense, making it a good choice for washbasins. Maple, a hard wood, is also strong and solid.
So Faux, So Beautiful
We found another outstanding sink company! Sculpted from rainwater stone, Bandini’s Ebano collection captures the quintessence, in color and form, of wood. Faux never looked so genuine.
