Native Trails Gunmetal Finish
April 28, 2023
Native Trails has expanded its Italian-made Precious Metals kitchen and bathroom sink offerings to include a new gunmetal finish. The dark, sultry glaze is cultivated through a proprietary blend of genuine gold, silver and platinum—the existing 25th-anniversary Precious Metal finishes—which gives it a rare luster.
The bold, cool presence is an appealing addition to kitchen and bathroom spaces alike and was made available for order through nearly 1,300 showrooms across North America this month.
To bring the Precious Metals Collection to life, Native Trails worked with fireclay master craftspeople in central Italy to combine age-old artisan culture with modern design. The Umbrian region of central Italy, home to exceptional clay soils, has a long history of ceramics going back to the Bronze Age. It also boasts a rich heritage of gold and silversmiths that used ancient methods to create beautiful metallic glazes over handmade pottery. Featuring radiant finishes that exude beauty and grandeur, the Precious Metals collection represents the finest aesthetic of luxury while paying homage to the past.
The high-quality fireclay sinks are fired twice at temperatures reaching over 2,200 degrees, then glazed by hand with genuine 24k gold, platinum, silver or gunmetal, and fired yet a third time. The sinks are then sealed through a proprietary process to ensure they uphold a fine aesthetic of luxury while also boasting an unparalleled durability for long lasting performance and beauty. The collection is made up of five designs — Rendezvous and Dreamer kitchen sinks, Reveler bar and prep sink, as well as Bliss and Amara bathroom sinks.
