I've been slowly making all the necessary decisions for the SF remodel (natural strandwoven bamboo flooring, color of bathroom tiles, light fixtures, kitchen crap, blah blah blah), and have decided to use a white-bronze square vessel as the bathroom sink. It's the shape of the vessel in the lower-right, but the color/finish of the one on the upper-right. It looks slightly (and softly) beaten, and has a satin finish to it. The plan is to have a faucet come out of the wall with a single knob/lever for water pressure and temperature (I hate two-knobbed controls). Obviously, the countertop would be lower so that the sink would be at the proper height.
I've been looking at kitchens by Poliform/Varenna. They're purrrty.
