Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CWEFAN Beautiful pedestal sink!
It is a gorgeous modern sculptural design. The width provides plenty of space for things that normally go on a counter. Be careful in your faucet choice -- keep the drop between the spout and the sink to a minimum to avoid splashing when the water hits the bottom of the basin.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MeticulousArchitect Poor packaging, Cheap Overflow Cap, Lots of visible Water marks
This is a modest design for a transitional bathroom. The 39" wide sink would give the "designer element" in the bathroom, without peacocky flamboyance. And, it served the purpose in mine.
The sink arrived with a top sink and a separate pedestal.
Mind you that it was awkward to even lift the top sink out of the box, as the manufacturer put gray plastic bags and filled them with expanding spray foams randomly. Not quite an elegant job.
Initially we like the design once it was professionally installed, but, soon after the first use, I found the overflow round cap is the cheapest plastic I have ever seen in any bathroom sink. And, when the water from the faucet is shut, the last water drops will hit the cap. And it gets really annoyingly cheap-looking.
I have bright recessed ceiling lights and it shows all the dried water marks toward the edges of tilted bowl area. I suspect that it is because the bowl itself is shallow and flat, not concave. I have to wipe the marks out once or twice to keep the sinks look clean. I have become slightly bitter to think that I traded this unforeseen labor for life to get the design I had wanted.
I am not discouraging anyone to buy this item, but you should expect some unpleasant factors I am listing here, not to be disappointed or bitter.
- flexible modern style (not contemporary)
- generously incorporated top shelf area
- fluctuating price tag over the years (this is my 3rd purchase, and prices are sometimes $150-200 different throughout the year)
- Poor packaging, box, punctured, not-well packed inside
- flimsy plastic overflow cap
- visible dried water marks, even in the lightest use(frequent wiping required)
- top-heavy, harder to install
