Washstands.



I got a few questions from people asking where to find sinks/washstands like the ones pictured here.

You can find some HERE (altough pricey), or you can try HERE (also pricey).

If anyone else knows where to find something like this under $1500, please leave links below.

Why can my bathroom NEVER look this good? Beautiful.

Check out LaCava.com --they knock my socks off and the stuff's priced really well.

There are several here well under $1K:

I think that is a model by Kohler (I'm considering it for my bathroom). It is called Memoirs or something like that. It is available as a pedestal or with the chrome stuff underneath.

Not an exact match but Pottery Barn gets the idea at under $1200:

The Cheviot Essex console is one I've been considering for a while, they're made in Brazil.

I actually bought that exact washstand for a bathroom ...in a house that now only my ex gets to enjoy ...fucker. :)

I'm so sorry for your loss of a beautiful bathroom "love Maegan," but thank you for making me laugh out loud. Exes are the worst. xoxo

I've seen on a blog somewhere (I tried to find it but lord knows that can be impossible) where they built an apothecary style sink themselves. They had the marble cut and did the metal fitting. Seems time consuming but if you had a good contractor I bet they could do it.

VERY OFF TOPIC - the Domino web site is now gone. I was still going there to have last looks at the home videos of Matt Albiani, Jenna Lyons, etc etc. and to mourn. To grieve.

But this time, today, the link sent me to Architectural Digest. Ugh. Please, Decorno distract me with your acerbic wit and plumbing issues. I am so very very blue. And not even a good blue. Perhaps more of your kitchen picture - for distraction? That might work....

AT showed a bathroom recently in which the contractor built a simple wooden base for an $80 IKEA sink that ended up looking pretty fantastic. It's a very different look from the gorgeous chrome base in the picture, but an option to consider. The bathroom also uses penny round tile in really nice ways. Here's the post:

I think that sink is the Kohler Memoirs with table legs.

I'm sure its way expensive and not under the $1500 mark, but Albion Bath Co has some pretty sinks just like that.

hello,
We have waterworks in our powder room. unless you are a neat freak, you will not like them in your main area, unless you have a "primping station" and lots of drawers/shelves.

We created a sink similar to this. Our clever architect designed it and our contractor fabricated it from plumbing pipes and a slab of marble. I no longer live in the house and can't attach a photo.

This is one we bought in the price range you are looking for (rolled towels cover the glass shelf--no worries!)

if you had the time and effort - i imagine an IKEA mix and match job would re-create the lok at a fraction of the cost...

i've just had a sift through their latest catalogue...i imagine American and European markets for IKEA are same...

Is this the weirdest idea or what? My husband is 6"5" and recently developed back problems. The porcher pedestal I put in his bathroom 15 years ago (looks great) is too short. I'm thinking of using a boos kitchen cart ( the area in his room is not very large and there isn't very deep). I saw a French bathroom using maple tops and marble sinks. I think I'm going to keep the maple top and put a white toto vessel sink on it. The cart comes with wheels (which I like and it makes the whole thing taller), a towel bar and stainless shelves underneath. Will all of you youngers with great style talk me down.

I saw some stuff like this at a shop we have around Dallas called seconds and surplus. I'm sure you can find similar stores in your area.
