Native Trails Expands Murano Collection with New Shape and Design Styles.
Native Trails is excited to announce the expansion of its coveted Murano Collection. Roma is the newest glass vessel sink joining the existing five shapes — Amalfi, Lido, Positano, Sorrento, and Verona. The distinguished half-globe provides a deep bowl for cleansing and reduced splashing, while its terraced exterior is a dramatic departure from your basic bathroom sink. Roma, as well as Lido and Sorrento, are available in two new design series: Marina, where ribbons of blue and white hug each curve, and Seaspray with translucent white swirls on a clear basin, creating a stunning light effect.
“Preserving time-honored artisan traditions will always be a core value to our brand,” said Naomi Neilson, Founder and CEO. “For this collection, we collaborated with Italian glass artisans to continue to bridge cultures and bring a sense of peace and connection in homes across North America. Roma and our two new, stunning design styles – Marina and Seaspray – will be a breathtaking addition to nearly any bathroom.”
For 1,500 years, Italian glass artisans have been working their furnaces to produce both useful and beautiful pieces that are seen around the world. Utilizing techniques handed down for centuries from Bronze Age glass makers through Egypt, the Romans, and on to Venice, the city of Murano has been the center for glassmaking in the modern world since the 13th century.
The colors and patterns of the Murano Collection are created in the molding and spinning process, and each glass vessel sink is expertly hand-formed, giving each piece its own personality as an irreplaceable work of functional art. The Murano Collection consists of seven design series — Beachcomber, Abyss, Bianco, Shoreline, Abalone, and newly introduced Marina and Seaspray — each composed of multiple sink styles, though every sink in the collection is unique.
Inherently sustainable, the glass Murano Collection takes up to 50% less energy to produce than porcelain and other common sink materials, thus reducing its comparative carbon footprint. Each sink is exceptionally stain resistant, certified to withstand point impact and thermal shock, and is UPC/cUPC compliant.
