The pedestal sink is a thing of the past – it’s all about the sleek look of the console sink. Keeping it classic with a touch of modern simplicity. This fixture can be adapted to all sorts of styles.

The gold or silver legs to match your fixtures gives a polished style, and the addition of a marble sink gives a truly luxurious design. These sinks are especially useful in a small guest bath, or powder room.
