Best for Kitchen & Bath
Eleek bathroom lavatories, made from hand-rubbed bronze in smooth, organic shapes, look more like art than plumbing. Better yet, they’re made from 90 percent recycled material. Eleek, known for its eco-friendly light fixtures, moved into making recycled-metal bathroom fixtures to “use as much local scrap as possible,” cofounder Sattie Clark says. In addition to keeping scrap out of the landfill, “it cuts down the carbon miles on our product.”
Eleek offers patinas ranging from urban to rustic. “We offer five different finishes,” Clark says, “and we can oftentimes do a custom color. Plus, all of the nontoxic patinas are applied by hand.” The sinks may be mounted into a vanity or installed as a vessel.
