Michael S Smith For Town collection adds Bleu de Chine option to Kitchen Sink

KOHLER, Wis. (October 24, 2012) – Kallista, a leading provider of decorative plumbing products, has added Bleu de Chine limestone as an option for the Michael S Smith For Town Collection Kitchen Sink. The deep single basin model, rendered in richly marbled blue-gray limestone, is a ruggedly modern take on the existing white Carrara marble version allowing clientele to select their preferred style to suit their individual design aesthetic.

The For Town Kitchen Sink in Bleu de Chine has a smooth, honed finish and a carved apron front that is understated and enduring. Hand-hewn details inspired by architectural molding circumscribe the front panel, evoking classical nuance and lending the sink a timeless aspect that is at home in a variety of settings. This substantial piece is also inherently practical, with a generous 20” x 34” x 10” single basin that is extra deep to easily accommodate large pots and pans.

Nationally and internationally recognized for his imaginative interiors, high-profile projects and dazzling “Who’s Who” list of clientele, Smith has developed a style that has been characterized as a delicate blend of “European tradition and American modernism.” Beginning in 1999, Smith has designed four highly successful lines for Kallista. In addition to the “For Town” collection, Smith has also designed “For Country,” “For Loft,” and “Inigo,” offering myriad stylish solutions of timeless elegance.
