What Goes With That?: Lenova’s Bronze Oyster Sink

As homeowners seek to reconnect with nature in their kitchens and baths, Lenova’s Bronze Oyster Sink may just offer the ideal mix of earthy appeal and upscale style. Inspired by the Seven Seas, each sink is individually hand-cast and hand-finished so no two are alike, while its 27-in. x 17-in. x 4-in. dimensions ensure an ample basin and plenty of presence. But what to pair it with? For that, K+BB turned to social media and received the following responses from designers:

I love the Chelsea H125 faucet set from Hasting Tile & Bath for its graceful, architectural shape. In a way, it echoes the layered curves of the sink but in a simpler form. However, for the purpose of complementing the sink, an oil-rubbed bronze-type finish would be better.

THG’s Falls Spring also has appeal as a complement to the sink, again for the layered quality of the shapes and low profile. Its color is a bit bright, but might work. A duller finish, even one in a gold tone, would work as well.

The simple rustic nature of Sonoma Forge’s WherEver hands-free faucet complements the interest and detail of the natural free-form design of the sink.

The copper New Asian Organic Feng Shui Bathroom Vessel Sink Faucet by Freuer is a wonderful complement to the Lenova Oyster sink. The layers of curves and glossy shine in the Oyster Sink appeal to an organic style, and the bamboo styling of the faucet enhances the "found in nature" layered look of the sink.

I love the soothing waterfall flow of water created by Kraus’ Waterfall Faucet. It seems to complement the calm feeling I get from the sink.

The natural look of the sink inspired me to select a faucet that would complete the set. Pegasus’ 67109-8196h Bamboo vessel filler lavatory in heritage bronze has a texture that keeps with the organic feeling of the sink.
