Shire Vanity With Solid Wood Sink

The Shire Vanity combines organic form with artful function.
It features 3 drawers, on the left hand side with a "push to open" feature, eliminating the distraction of hardware. To the right is a pair of barreled doors. The 2, center, vertical stiles of the doors were cut from the same piece of wood, mirroring each other. Behind the doors is additional space and plumbing access.
The vanity base is made of black walnut with bookmatched, sapele panels and drawer fronts. These 2 woods combined provide warm contrast between orange and brown tones.
The crown jewel of this piece however, is the solid, sapele wood sink and counter top. The 2 are fused together with the sink being permanently attached to the underside of the counter top. The sink has been hand-carved from a solid block of wood. The counter compliments the sink with its organic, sculpted edges. Both have received multiple, built-up coats of marine-grade epoxy, the same product used on wood boats, and then top coated with a spar urethane. When water contacts the sinks surface, each drop instantly beads and runs down the bowl into the drain.
The Shire Vanity is the perfect accent for any powder room, guaranteed to impress those who witness its beauty.
