Minimalist Bathroom Console from Julien


A slim under-mounted sink that fits into a lovely white Carrera Marble vanity, the Julien bathroom console offers a simple and elegant accent for sophisticated bathrooms. A rectangular form, the console has a sense of space and openness that makes rooms appear less crowded. Available in wall-mount or freestanding styles, it looks light and airy, even when balanced on narrow spindly legs. Beneath a gorgeous marble surface rests a stainless steel sink with sharp clean lines. The steel and Carrera Marble (as in model 502355 shown) are a wonderful marriage of light materials in contrasting textures, for a modern indulgence and design. An alluring bathroom furnishing, the Julien console uses the natural beauty of marble to create a stunning vanity for modern interiors.

Clean Modern Vanity Console Design from Urban Archaeology

The clean profile of the City vanity console from Urban Archaeology can give a modern bathroom some edgy flair. It combines the luxury of marble with the sleek flavor of metal to produce a contemporary fixture that has major attitude. This stylish unit features a thin, white marble slab into which the sink has been recessed. This slab seems to virtually float while perched atop thin metal legs, giving it a somewhat hi-tech appearance. Nevertheless, it seems to maintain a sense of classic styling that gives it some credibility as a functional and elegant piece of furniture that would be equally perfect for the traditional, transitional, or contemporary space. This console is a standard 24″ deep, is available in various widths, and comes in a two or three leg version. Pricing and other info can be obtained from Urban Archaeology.

The vanity sits atop two immaculate legs – gracefully curved and beautifully teamed with gold or silver. Offering a glossy or satin finish, the top is available in sparkling white. The gold or silver bar extending from the top is unexpected, giving the console sculptural glamor.

Contemporary Bathroom Console by Laufen

The Form console from Laufen is a nice contemporary design. And it comes with a very functional form, thus the name. Let’s say you have a very narrow bathroom, and the space between the wall and the door opening is tiny. Thanks to the fact that the counter is much more narrow on both ends (vs. the sink depth), you could still fit this vanity in between, without hitting it when walking into the bathroom. Still, the built-in sink is quite large, which makes this design a win-win when you’re limited in choices.

Industrial Style Sink Console by Stone Forest

The Ore industrial style sink console from Stone Forest is a work of art. A metal, bowl-shaped vessel is mount over an industrial pedestal. This combination looks antique and very sophisticated, a perfect choice for a vintage themed loft.

A white porcelain sink extends on both sides to create an ample amount of counter space for your bathroom essentials. The sink is 39 1/2″ wide and is available in one or three hole versions. The wood stand is composed of solid oak stained with a dark wenge finish, creating a dramatic contrast with its white porcelain counterpart. The base also has a handy shelf, ideal for storing towels and washcloths. The unit features simple, elegant lines that add a bit of sophistication to any room. A matching framed mirror is also available.

Wrought Iron Vanity Console from St.Thomas Creations
