Luxury Waterworks sink, wall mount with chrome legs and towel bars, for luxe retro style

Finishing up my recent series on bathroom sinks matched with chrome legs, I wanted to spotlight this Waterworks model. No doubt, it is GORGEOUS. But, the chrome legs with integrated towel bars do run $1,475… while the sink is $315. If you’ve got the cash and the desire, this certainly would be the centerpiece of your retro reno bathroom.

But, if you just want the look and the basic functionality, see my other, recent bathroom posts on wall-mount sinks from Crane that can be matched with $30 chrome legs from Franklin Brass. Another thought: The original fixtures used in our retro homes were NOT luxury. They were stylish…and functional…but, accessibly priced for the growing population. So in that spirit, I really prefer to seek out affordable products to complete a retro renovation.

So in that spirit: Try salvage shops…or even place an ad in your local paper. I advertised in the items wanted section a couple of years ago, and immediately turned up a wall-mount sink with fabulous chrome legs with towel bars, and nabbed the set for $65. It had be sitting in someone’s basement for 20 years. It was in perfect shape, and looks awesome in my tiny but functional – and beautiful – master bathroom.

    Hi, do you by any chance know the name of this Waterworks sink? I went to their website but couldn’t find it. I actually have the exact same sink that the previous owner of our house installed, but it has hairlines fractures and dings in some places. I really hope to find the same top to go on those legs but can’t seem to find a nice sink W24″ x D20″xH7″. The cranes ones are way too small. I hope I can find another one like this. Could you help. Thanks.

      Lydia, why don’t you call Waterworks, I am sure they could help you. Alternatively, I’d recommend you look for something vintage….

    This makes me think of an idea: If you need architectural salvage, you could join a neighborhood association Facebook page (of which your city might have some), of a neighborhood from the appropriate period, and ask on there if anyone has something like this. There have to be lots of them sitting in basements, garages, or about to be torn out.

      I found my vintage sink and chrome legs by advertising in the local newspaper. I think that craigslist has now usurped that territory.. Great suggestion, Laura.
