It is hard to compete with the ingenuity and elegance of Omvivo’s ethereal Motif Basins. The Motif basins are a series of raised glass basins, whose etched design cast fantastic shadows across the bathroom counter. Omvivo offers this product in three designs: Forest, Pebble and Kaleidoscope.
Forest is shown above with the most elaborate of the three patterns; it details images of songbirds, tree branches and fully bloomed flowers.
Pebble is an asymmetrical design of oval pebbles grouped randomly across the glass basin.
Kaleidoscope features a repeating geometric design with angular flower-like shapes predominating.
Omvivo, however, is an Australian company, and for us American decorators, acquiring one of these basin beauties would be quite the feat. One option would be to keep the Motif basins as a permanent part of our virtual, fantasy house, accepting the impossibility of it becoming a reality. On the other hand, we could count our losses (and saved money) by checking out similar options that are more available in the United States.
