Fine sculpture is displayed on pedestals. And sinks on columnar bases do much of the same, isolating and, therefore, showcasing the daily art of primping. The very dapper interior designer Marshall Watson understood as much when creating this stunning bath, where a pedestal sink stars in its own mirrored niche. Seating is key to this room design because who wouldn't want to watch this level of chic being created?

Dedicating space to a pedestal sink is not a solution for every space. Often used for guest half-baths, it means foregoing counters as well as storage. In practical terms, an installation like Watson's in a master suite means separating the sink where you do a few final touchups from the place (a vanity or dressing desk) where the real work gets done. 

Space is lost. But there's no substitute for the aura of glamour gained—especially if you start with a four-star sink. To view a few of our favorite designs, follow these links:

 As close a match as you'll find to the fixture used by Marshall Watson in the photo above.

A modern glamour piece with a widespread basin for minimal splash and a strong, geometric silhouette.

A sleek form that echoes midcentury designs in a gentle, timeless way. As a plus, it includes matching fixtures from Hansgrohe.

A great transitional piece that bridges classic form and minimal detail.

  3. Contrast to the present rapid developments in information and technology, Indian wooden furniture still maintains its traditional way of using simple tools and processes in its production. Because of this, there is still much ethnic flavour to be found in the furniture. for more Indian furnitures ( www.at-home.co.in )
