Quickie: Float like a Dragonfly

Quickie: Float like a Dragonfly

This bathroom sink design from Casa URO, Monterrey, Mexico, just blows my mind. I love the faucet and mirror combination that takes the pipes away from down below and makes the plumbing part of the structure and style. The worn river rocks are a great counterpoint to […]
