A word about sinks

The bathroom sink in our Paris apartment is the best bathroom sink ever. Stylishly designed, it’s big & white, has ample counter space, and a faucet that, although a bit confusing at first, offers high flow and fine control. It has the best drain stop I’ve seen. It’s so simply designed โ€” without any moving parts but surprisingly functional โ€” that one wonders how drain stops could be designed in any other fashion.

The kicker is that the sink is from IKEA and probably costs about โ‚ฌ12. As much as I dislike huge multinational companies, if we’re going to have them, I’d take IKEA and their well-designed household items over Wal-Mart any day.
