BEAUTIFUL VESSEL SINK(S). HAVE NOT INSTALLED YET, BUT WITH THE INCLUDED HARDWARE, IT SHOULD BE NO PROBLEM. A WONDERFUL SURPRISE IS THAT THE SINK COMES WITH A POP UP DRAIN. ALTHOUGH I WILL USE IT, I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT THE POP-UP CAME IN CHROME. ALL MY NEW FIXTURES, SHOWER AND BATH TRIM WILL BE OIL RUBBED BRONZE. TRY AS I MIGHT, OVERSTOCK.COM DOES NOT HAVE POP-UPS IN THAT FINISH. SAME WITH THE SINK RING. A BUMMER, BUT I WILL LIVE WITH IT, UNTIL SOMETHING COMES ALONG. DELIVERY TIME FOR THE SHIPMENT WAS REASONABLY QUICK.
A SHOWCASE!! Everyone who has seen it (including the granite company to which we took it for a match of colors) has been awestruck. It is fun and elegant at the same time. Our son, who did the tile work on the bathroom's shower, is very pleased to have such an addition to the room; my husband and nephew, who made the vanity, feel it "tops off" their cabinet perfectly. I think the stopper could be a better match, yet overall we all love it. A great buy. Certainly just as beautiful "in person" as it's picture.
I am purchasing my first home and absolutely love any asian interior design because couldnt for the life of me find a pattern suitable for the bathroom. Most designs Ive seen look cheap or too over the top for an area that someone wouldnt be for more than an hour lol.Soooo clearly Im a loyal O shopper (hence the review) but have only used them for everything but Home Decor!! Duh!! Where have I been!? =) Hands down, I think its going to be hard for me to continue shopping for my house without leaving my home!! Thanks again O!
I have been waiting to write this review to say how thoroughtly pleased we are with our Koi sink! We weren't ready to install it when it arrived but we had to hold it up to the sunllight to see what it looked like. Both my husband and I were amazed at how beautiful it was! The picture online was very accurate. There are six koi, two orange-gold and four dark green. The tiny bee is my favorite. We changed our minds and now have planned our bathroom around the color scheme of the sink. Now that it is installed, we couldnn't be more happy with our Overstock purchase. We also ordered the fauacet set from Overstock and were very happy with that, too.
I love it. It is perfect! I think that what people say - about it being darker than advertised, is due to the fact that a light isn't hitting the sink right. So, if you have a light shining through it, it will look EXACTLY like it is shown, but for me, it is perfect for our Japanese inspired bathroom. Of course, I wish diamonds looked as good as they do in a jewelry store, too :-). Between the red and green and rosewood in there, it is perfect. Well made and I enjoy washing my hands in it among the fishes :-). It is very earthy....with pretty brown tones.
Finally! The internet quest for a suitable vessel bowl for the Chinese teak vanity is over. This predominantly green glass bowl looks great on the teak. Must say that the picture does the color some justice- actual color is slightly more muted than pictured. However, if it were as brilliant as pictured, it might be in danger of being just too blingy. Fabulous value at under 200 dollars. Did not like the chrome mounting ring nor pop/up drain. Using oil rubbed bronze instead.
This sink is stunning! I designed a new build bathroom around this sink. The colors are rich and the design is outstanding. Very heavy -- have no worries about durability. Sits on knotty hickory cabinet with counter of 1x1 recycled content glass tiles using mostly greens also pulling a few red/orange tiles which brings out the color of the koi. Other good accent colors are cream or pale yellow, black and apricot (reminds me of an orange-cream icecream bar). There are variances of greens--none of which are turquoise or seafoam. The greens are more like seaweed and range from pale green to dark green--very rich colors! Note that there is no blue in this sink--it may be difficult to tell from the picture.It really is beautiful! The accent tile in the bath contain 1x1 natural stone and glass tiles with muted shades of green and brownish green. The salesman at the plumbing store where our contractor had us go said we got a very good deal on the koi sink. He didn't show us a single sink for under $400 which is why I am looking for more sinks on Overstock.com! (also, our plumber approved the koi sink saying it looked very well made). I used a single chrome faucet--be sure to get one that is the right height for the sink--this sink also looks great with oil rubbed bronze! Good luck on your projects!!
My heart sank when I saw that the colors and resolution were not in any way like what was online or in the box's picture. The green was more like olive green and there was nothing luminescent with the rest of the yellows or oranges. The fish are brown, not golden or orange. Now I have to agree with the other purchasers who complained about the same issues. The bowl does feel heavy and solid; I probably will use this as a decorative living room bowl rather than a bathroom sink. The hassles of returning heavy items like this deter me from sending it back. I would not have bought this bowl had I known the real colors were going to be so drabby.
The koi sink is beautiful! It seems to be of good quality tho I was a bit disappointed with the color. It appeared to us that it would be a little different in color than what it ended up to be..still beautiful. Also, the installation directions are a little obtrusive.
This is a wonderful addition to any bathroom decor. In building a new powder room in my home I was at a loss for something to MAKE the small room. This bowl is an awesome and very beautiful vessel sink. The colors are brilliant yet well blended so its not loud. WE LOVE IT!
