Plumbing fixture manufacturer Native Trails’ latest sink line makes luxe natural metals the centerpiece of the kitchen and bathroom. The company also debuted Charcoal as a new finish for its NativeStone products, adding a deep, rich black to that product line.
The Precious Metals Collection consists of five sinks handcrafted with real 24-karat gold, platinum, and silver glazed onto the company’s fireclay sinks, adding an opulent touch. Sink options include two apron-front (or farmhouse) kitchen sinks, a bar sink, and two bathroom sinks.
This collection veers from the brand’s typical natural ceramic products, but for good reason: to celebrate Native Trails’ 25th anniversary.

To create the company’s trademark fireclay basins, Italian craftspeople first fire the clay in extreme temperatures exceeding 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit, then hand-glaze each sink. It is then fired for the third time and finished in a custom formulated sealer. The results are sinks that are highly durable and distinctive.
Precious Metals’ two apron-front kitchen sinks, Rendezvous and Dreamer, offer strikingly different features. Both make a statement in the kitchen, but Rendezvous offers a curved apron front while Dreamer features a classic square apron front. Cabinets under the Rendezvous kitchen sink must be a minimum of 36 inches tall and Dreamer requires a minimum base cabinet size of 33 inches.
Rendezvous also boasts a much larger size than its square counterpart. It measures 33 by 19.5 by 10 while Dreamer measures 30 by 17.5 by 10.

For the design of the bar and prep sink, Reveler, does not mix white fireclay with touches of the metal glaze. Instead, the entire square basin features genuine metals. It measures 15.75 by 15.75 by 7.5 inches.
For the bathroom, the Bliss and Amara sinks offer a curved option and a strong linear option, similar to the kitchen sinks. Bliss, the fireclay vessel sink, rests on the countertop and comes with six different finish options. Residential pros can opt for a full metal glazed sink or a glazed exterior and matte white fireclay interior. The Bliss vessel sink measures 16 inches in diameter with a 4.5-inch height.
Amara, the other bathroom sink, offers the three standard metal finishes but can be installed as a drop-in or under-mount sink. It measures 20 by 14 by 4.75 inches.
All five sinks are set to roll out in August 2021.
