AUGUST 2015 RETAILOBSERVER.COM 17 INTRODUCING A SELECTION OF SIGNATURE FINISHES FROM THOMPSON TRADERS Human touch is evident in every handcrafted copper vessel created by Thompson Traders, from start to finish. The process begins by melting copper into a pancake-shaped ingot. The ingot is heated in a fire then hammered into shape. After the metal has cooled, the process is repeated—over and over—until the company's coppersmiths have achieved the desired design and finish. ANTIQUE SATIN GOLD FINISH As distinct as Cartier's rose gold watch, the Chelsea Limited Editions sink is the epitome of style, crafted with a square double wall design and hidden drain. The subtle hints in the finish are a nod to creative director Alejandra Ochoa de Thompson's jewelry inspiration. Shown in the hand-hammered finish of antique satin gold, the sink's golden rosy glow feels both modern and timeless. Dimensions: Outer, 12 inches; inner, 12 inches; depth, 3 inches. Sinks shown are available in multiple finishes. Adding flair to functionality, the flower-shaped Fiore Legacy sink dazzles. It's the perfect powder room addition, adding polished elegance. A smooth antique satin gold finish enhances the texture and layering of color achieved through the skilled hands of Thompson Traders' coppersmiths. Dimensions: Outer, 19 inches; inner, 19 inches; depth ½ inch round. Sinks shown are available in multiple finishes. BLACK NICKEL FINISH A black nickel finish is akin to the urban thrill of ambling down a centuries-old cobblestone street toward a favored neighborhood café or other modern comfort. Copper peeks from beneath a black nickel finish creating a metallic and truly one-of-a-kind feel for the Matisse Limited Editions sink. Dimensions: Outer, 19 x 13 ¾ inches; inner, 17 x 11 ¾ inches; depth, 6 inches oval. Sinks shown are available in multiple finishes. MULTI-COLORED FINISH The striking Baccus Tornasol Legacy sink emanates rich, warm colors as inspiring as an ocean sunset. The round form is simple in design, but the rich finish makes this handcrafted piece a stand-out. The Multi-Colored finish is one of Thompson Traders' most unique—and elaborate. The "streaking" process enables artisans to create greens, blues, purples and yellows that seem to swirl into the drain. Dimensions: Outer, 17 inches, inner, 15 inches, depth, 6½ inches round. Sinks shown are available in multiple finishes.
