The brand Stone Forest has been taking natural materials like stone and marble to new levels for 25 years. Now, its new Workstation Sink collection of Farmhouse sinks is seizing popularity with wave-like and basket-woven patterns that stand out among other brands.

“Our popular Wave Front Kitchen Sink, was re-engineered as a workstation with a range of accessory options, including colander, cutting board, and drying rack,” says Mike Zimber, founder of Stone Forest. Along with that, we added a new Basket Weave Pattern with workstation accessories as well.”
