Eden Bath, a company that specializes in vessel sinks created from natural materials, has just released three unique new stone sinks which will join their existing line of over 50 stone lavatory models. "When developing new products we really want to think outside of the box and not repeat something the rest of the industry is doing." says Shawn Gusz, head of sales and marketing for Eden Bath. "We are always willing to take a chance when it comes to a new design, sometimes it's wildly popular and occasionally it flops. But judging from the initial response to the new canoe shaped stone sinks; they are really going to be a popular item."
According to Gusz, the inspiration for two of the new stone sinks, as the model name suggests, comes from one of Eden Baths copper sinks which was based on the original canoes first used by Native Americans. "The shape is so functional, yet quite dramatic, bowl shaped vessel sinks have become 'the norm', the graceful curves and profile of our canoe sinks really make them stand out in a bathroom. The wild success of the canoe shaped copper sink convinced us to translate that design into stone."
Initially the canoe sinks will be offered in two materials, polished Perlato SF marble (model number S059) and honed and filled imported beige travertine (model number S060) with other material choices to follow later in the year.
In addition to the canoe shaped stone sinks Eden Bath is also proud to release a revised version of the Absolute Black Ultra Zen Stone Sink, model number S011. The new sink is wider from left to right, but smaller from front to back, giving it a trough like appearance. "People who look at the S011 usually have two words to describe the design; modern, and masculine. The hard cut angles and the commanding presence along with the polished black granite surface, really portray a sense of modern masculinity."
Vessel sinks have been gaining ground in both new bathroom construction and old bathroom renovations. The design trend that arrived in the mid 90's appears to be here to stay, with close to 30% of bathroom lavatory sales being of the above counter vessel design. "We really are just looking to stand out from the crowd." says Gusz. "We consider ourselves to be a design firm just as much as a decorative plumbing manufacturer. You can't be one without the other."
