As far as Johnston is concerned, Shaw's Original apron-front sink by Rohl can be used in any architectural situation. “It looks fantastic in both renovations and modern spaces,” says the architect, who used it in this firm project. Measuring 30 inches wide and 18 inches from front to back, the 8½-inch-deep fireclay sink resists daily abuse and is hardy enough to be cleaned with abrasive pads or powders. Choose from black, biscuit, or white. Rohl, 800.777.9762; www.rohlhome.com.
