A new line of Adler-ized sinks is "officially" launching next week at ICFF, but we got the scoop a few days early. Not surprisingly, considering the designer's always upbeat style sensibility, the collection is color drenched and happily more than a touch unexpected in an area that is often woefully safe. Adding some zing to your kitchen and bath renovation just got a little bit easier — more colors below...
The limited edition collection consists of six enameled cast iron sinks available in four Adler-approved colors. As is often the case with Jonathan Adler's work, these colorful, exuberant, fearless colors remind us not to take the fun stuff (like designing your new bathroom or kitchen) too seriously.
Jonathan's thoughts on the colors in the collection:
• Greenwich Green - "This is not dull avocado green. It's bolder, yet timeless. So crisp and refreshing you can taste it."
• Piccadilly Yellow: "There's a very mod quality to Piccadilly yellow, especially when paired with white. It's unexpected and will always feel fresh."
• Palermo Blue: "A nice, crisp light blue is cool and refreshing, like taking a dip in the Med itself."
• Annapolis Navy: "Annapolis Navy epitomizes nautical chic. It's such a classic color because it pairs so well with other bold colors."
The photos here show how the sinks can wake up and add a bit of bold design chutzpah to an otherwise basic white backdrop. This is one no-fail way to do super style on a budget ; by going with the single blast of color as your key piece you can source your all-white tiles and other fixtures with ease at whatever price point your budget allows.
We're looking forward to hearing more on availability and cost after the launch at ICFF - we'll follow up then.
