Ever since I was reacquainted with Lapicida during my trip to Decorex London in September, I can’t get enough of them. And what’s really distracting me is this stunningly sexy, free-standing Italian travertine basin just waiting for a client’s approval. Sinuous curves of all types make for good obsessions – the lines of an Aston Martin or the curves of a Poltrona Frau and now yours truly has a mania for the delectable soft sides of this piece I’m christening as the Georgia O’Keeffe basin.
As many of you know, Lapicida is of the world’s leading luxury stone specialist. They source the globe for the best of the best and then have their craftsmen work their magic, producing fabulous tiles and objects, such as the free standing basin above. It also helps having what is likely the largest lathe in the world capable of carving large pieces into sculpture. My bet is that these are the sinks the stylish crowd will covet in the years to come.
