This hasn't yet been installed in my new house, so I can't really comment on the installation process. It is beautiful and is going to be a very classy addition to my guest bath. I think that the "Olive" in the description is a bit misleading. Though I suppose you could claim that it has a green tint to it, I would say it's more gold than anything. The picture is much more accurate in color than the description is. I can't wait to see it installed.
Plan to give this sink away as the color was completely off but the quality seems good.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color on the site is completely different than in reality. The "swirls" are actually gold. They look painted on versus more organically occuring in the glass.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is good. Because the color is off, didn't work for my asthetic design
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? average
Its like having artwork in our bathroom. The design matched all of the decor from top to bottom.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close enough
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Time will tell, but seems like a quality product
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
I ordered the Fontaine Olive Swirls Glass Vessel Sink as I wanted something unique for our new bathroom I haven't installed yet - BUT so far I am quite pleased. It arrived promptly and includes a lovely, EASY to install pop up drain which is very nice and high quality. The smooth finish on the inside is gorgeous and it has great detail. We were surprised to find the exterior uneven due to the design, which may present a slight challenge if we decided to recess the sink into the counter top a little, but I think this can be done with some padding of sorts to ensure a tight seal between the counter top and the sink itself.Overall the quality is very high, it is heavy, with an incredibly smooth inside and edge finish, truly a unique conversation piece.
After reading all the reviews, I made the decision to purchase the sink. My only concern was that "olive" wouldn't go with my bathroom. There is little if any olive color in the sink. I was so pleased with my purchase. The bowl looks great! It's exactly like the photo, maybe better. It's of great quality and style. I was concerned that it may arrive broken, because I had lined up my tile installation for the expected arrival date. It was in perfect condition, as promised. I would purchase this sink again and again. It's perfect!
The price is GREAT! Overstock is outstanding. The packaging was wonderful. The sink is not awful, but the picture makes the sink look a little more higher quality than it actually is. The sink is not as smooth around the rim as the picture shows. It has a couple of indents on the sides of the rim. It gives it a little more worn and rustic feel. I answered the question, yes, as to would I recommend this to a friend, but I would definitely have them to come and look at it first. It's not a absolutely,
I read the reviews of all the vessel sinks available and decided to order this item. The picture does not do it justice. This is a beautiful piece of workmanship! The exterior will not flake off as with other vessel sinks of this design. As another reviewer stated, this piece is so expensive looking. It comes with a chrome pop up/ring. I purchased the KRAUS pop up/ring in oil rubbed bronze . . . beautiful together. My husband says this is an easy install as well. Such a great value for such a knock out look for my guest bath!
I waited several weeks for this sink to become available again on Overstock.com. as it sold out quickly. I am so happy I waited. It is absolutely beautiful and a great value. Looks very expensive and the rough underside gives it so much character. If you are on the fence about this one, don't be. It is well worth ordering!
I bought two of these vessel sinks, and they are beautiful! They are as you see them in the picture more of a gold black color. Remember that they are hand made and so they will be slightly diffrent . They look very expensive and if you like an expense look this is the vessal sink for you. The installation was simple and it comes with a pop up drain. Great deal you will not find anywhere for this price, believe me I have checked around.
This vessel sink is beautiful. It is really classy in my new remodeled bathroom. My color choices for the bathroom were rust and taupe, this blends right in beilive it or not. I do not feel the gold in this sink is bright. My sink has a tint of the gold in it in the swirl but it is elegant. I feel this sink would go with any color combination, please do not be afraid to order, It is absolutley classy and made well. I also, love the exterior finish. Good job for offering this sink to us Overstock..
I purchased two for my master bath. The sinks are heavy and look just like the picture online. Because these are hand made, there are differences. One sink (when looking into it) looks very vivid as far as colors. The other sink looks a little clouded.....as if steam was trapped between the glass and the bottom colors. I have recommended Overstock to others and I will continue to shop there. A return of a broken sink was an easy process and I was credited promptly.
Wow! This was my first purchase from Overstock.com and I was blown away! In most cases "if it seems too good to be true, then it isn't true", but this is an exception! My sinks are phenomenal, gorgeous, excellent quality, unbeatable price, and arrived in an unbelievable quick time. As I said this was my first purchase, but most definitely won't be my last! Also the customer service of online live chatting of questions I had, was great service. Order something and they will make a believer out of you. Thanks Overstock.com!
We are in the process of building a house and I ordered this for the powder room. I was a little afraid at first, only seeing it in a picture online. It is beautiful - exactly the look I was looking for. It isn't installed yet, but I know that it will look great. Very elegant and heavy duty. Thanks O
