Bathroom
Concrete Nation entered the market in 2013, but what an entry it has made. Manufactured on the gorgeous Gold Coast in Queensland, their meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship pushes boundaries and stays ahead of industry trends.  The handcrafted concrete basins are simply divine and come in a range of stunning shades.  They also do a pretty good concrete bath we must say!

Kitchen
It was 1947 in a small suburban factory in Adelaide where Oliveri was born.  Fun Fact: Founders decided on the name ‘Oliveri’ in a local Adelaide restaurant, by voting on names written on napkins.

They remain Australia’s only commercial stainless steel pressed-bowl sink manufacturer, whilst also importing quality products. The vast Oliveri range and superior design of sinks and taps are enjoyed by homeowners around the world and the Oliveri name continues to be synonymous with style, quality, reliability and great customer service.

Laundry
Another Queensland success story is Everhard.  Since 1926 the name Everhard has been a well-recognised and respected family owned brand in the industry.  Their range of ‘Excellence’ laundry tub and drawer units don’t disappoint.  The drawers include two soft close doors, with finger pull functionality and ample storage.  A great look (and practical piece) to integrate into any laundry design. They are available in timeless white as well as modern black finishes.

Kitchen
It was 1947 in a small suburban factory in Adelaide where Oliveri was born.  They remain Australia’s only commercial stainless steel pressed-bowl sink manufacturer, whilst also importing quality products like the new Italian produced ‘Santorini’ Glass Top Sink, available now at Cook’s.  The sink is constructed from 80% granite and 20% quartz and resin, ensuring premium quality, durability and reliability.  What’s the pièce de résistance you ask?  Two glass panels that when closed completely conceal the sink bowls, creating an uninterrupted bench top surface with a look to match sleek modern appliances. This rock solid sink comes with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty – it’s a true show stopper.
