Premier Copper Products, one of the largest suppliers in the USA of quality kitchen and bath copper products, has added solid oak wine barrel vanities to its bath and powder room collection, complementing the company’s 99.7% grade A recycled (and recyclable) copper sinks, tubs, and more. The new vanities are repurposed from Napa Valley wine barrels, air dried in the Arizona climate for two and a half years, before being dismantled and rebuilt into quality pieces of furniture by Arizona designer and craftsman, John Koering.
“French wine barrels are made from quarter-sawn oak which creates a beautiful grain. New barrels can cost wineries thousands of dollars each, so they are not to be wasted once their wine-storing days are over, usually around five years," says Beau Ralphs, CEO of Premier Copper Products. "We have created a wine barrel vanity that exceeds expectations of beauty and durability, with the help of a local craftsman who is experienced in making bathroom vanities and therefore understands the importance of ensuring durability and stability in a changing environment."
Master woodworker, John Koering puts each barrel through a multi-step process to transform barrels into highly functional and unique furniture. The resulting vanities are extremely stable and will maintain their integrity for a lifetime.
The barrel vanities are available in natural non-VOC stained finish, ‘cabernet’ medium tone, or ‘whisky’ dark wood finish, that is highly resistant to water and very easy to touch up. Vanities come with a limited lifetime guarantee. Beneath the sink, double doors are mounted on concealed, self-closing hinges, creating a smooth surface for the barrel vanity and a clean fit for the doors to the vanity’s storage area.
The barrel’s original bung hole is repurposed for a door opening. Premier Copper wine barrel vanities come with a pre-installed 17” oval hand-hammered copper sink (skirted or under-mount) and drain, that sits on top of the barrel’s ‘head’. For the vanity, sink, and faucet package, barrels are pre-cut for plumbing and come complete with solid brass, oil-rubbed bronze finish wide-spread faucet for the under-mount sink, or the single stem vessel filler faucet for the skirted vessel sink.
The outer dimension of the wine barrel is 28 x 28 x 34.5-inches. Outer dimensions with faucet installed are 28 x 28 x 42-inches. The dimensions of the doors are 18 x 13-inches.
Suggested retail price for the wine barrel vanity, sink and faucet package is $2726; the wine barrel vanity and sink only are $2398.
