Once used on a provincial Chinese farm to hold water or animal feed, this early 20th-century stone trough is celebrated today for its organic form and rustic authenticity. The footed trough has a rectangular form and shallow, oval basin, hand-shaped from solid limestone with balanced symmetry and perfectly imperfect texture. A pattern of vertical grooves textures the trough on all sides, the result of careful chiseling by hand. The irregular surface of the stone has softened with time, developing rounded edges and a subtle patina from centuries of use. A drainage hole is drilled into the center of the basin, making this trough ideal as a garden planter or stone sink basin.

Stone Trough Sinks

A stone sink is a unique way to embrace nature in design. Over the years, we’ve worked with clients who have incorporated troughs as sink basins in sleek Chicago apartments to outdoor garden areas in rustic lake houses in California. The stone sinks can “float” on a wall or be integrated into a counter.

We became even more enamored with traditional troughs as sinks after seeing Tramuntana Farmhouse, the idyllic home of Leigh and Pille Morgan on the Balearic island of Mallorca. The trough sinks complement the Spanish stone used throughout the home, while creating sculptural focal points in each space.
