Gym shoes for many years were utilitarian. White leather or canvas attached to a rubber sole. Nothing that exciting but they got the job done. Then came Nike and with Air Jordans. Gym shoes would never be the same. Actually gym shoes would quickly move to center court and become the de facto status symbol for many a young man. Somehow, Nike and figured out the formula for making the ordinary quite extraordinary.
I think Blanco is the Nike of sink design. Family-owned since 1925, Blanco’s humble beginnings included making copper galvanized parts for cookers and hot water bottles Fast forward 88 years and they have produced more than 40 million sinks and have come to be recognized as a world leader in quality and innovation.
Long gone are the times when a sink was merely used for function….
That was the sound of a “design slam dunk” by Blanco!

Some people ponder about the meaning of life and our existence. I ponder about the existence of brass hangers……
Not exactly meta stuff but it is something that perplexes me. Why are they so hard to find? When one does find them, why are they so darn expensive? You would think that with the brass and gold craze in full frenzy at the moment, the market would be flooded with them but alas I am left empty-handed. Well more importantly, my client is left with a closet that isn’t reaching its full potential.
Located directly across from his main entry is a small built-in coat rack. We contemplated building it in but it proved cost prohibitive. So we were thinking potentially installing a rack similar to this…..
Like the hangers and basic concept of the rack but hate that it looks like it should come with a navy blazer with 25% polyester and a pair of sensible slacks with a triple pleat. I would love something a little less corporate and more sleek but in brass.
Come on universe, help a brother out! Okay, while I wait for the powers that be to help me with my design dilemma, I am going to contemplate a serious question — what to have for dinner…..
