RETAILOBSERVER.COM SEPTEMBER 2017 18 NATIVE TRAILS ADDS 48-INCH SIZING FOR POPULAR BATHROOM FURNITURE Designed to accommodate the scale and luxury of a grand master bath, Americana vanity and Palomar vanity top with integral sink are being offered in 48" sizing Native Trails, the eco-chic company renowned for its artisan- made luxury kitchen, bath, and lifestyle products, has announced 48" sizing for its popular bath furniture, Palomar Vanity Top with integral sink and Americana Vanity. New sizing became available February 2017. "A great place to add sustainable luxury to the home is in the master bath," says Naomi Neilson Howard, founder and CEO of Native Trails. "Native Trails recognizes that for this room, a little bigger can be a lot better. Upgrading the sizing of our Palomar and Americana Vanity are a nod to today's grand master baths that invite home owners to create a true oasis." Palomar Vanity Top with integral sink is hand formed by artisans in Vietnam using Native Trails' exclusive NativeStone ® material. This strong blend of cement and natural jute fiber produces a product that is 40 percent lighter than standard concrete and exceptionally resistant to cracking, scratching, and staining. The new 48" size accommodates larger residential master baths while seamlessly marrying function with form. This Old House Magazine voted Native Trails' Palomar Top with Integral Sink as one of its Top 100 Best New Bath Products for 2015. (48" is available in Ash, Slate, and Pearl finishes: $1,485). Inspired by early American design, Americana Vanity is made from sustainable hardwood that brings a refined yet relaxed look, as well as practical storage, to any bathroom. Each vanity is handcrafted by artisans who use reclaimed wood from old barns, homesteads, and fencing gathered along California's Central Coast. Artisans also hand forge each piece of hardware to complete the seamless, all-American look. Native Trails' new 48" Americana Vanity is suited to larger bathrooms and residential master baths. (48" is available in Anvil, Chestnut, Driftwood, and Whitewash finishes: $3,248). Native Trails, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, is the premier source for luxury functional art in the kitchen, bath, and home. Offering inspired design, Native Trails is best known for hand- hammered, recycled copper sinks and bathtubs. Its artisan-made product lines have grown to include groundbreaking NativeStone ® concrete sinks, vanities, and furniture made of reclaimed and FSC- certified woods, and a range of home décor products.
