I chose a quartz product, Zodiaq brand and chestnut is the color and pattern. The sink is granite. It was recommended by several people. The faucet is a HansGrohe Allegro E. It looks like a piece of sculpture. I will get a close up for you to see and post it in a few days. This brand appealed to me because the housing for the pull down element is magnetized so it should never droop. YEAH!
Here they are.
When the painters come, the island will be painted a chocolate brown.
My back splash is being installed now so in a day or two, I will post photos. It is looking fab.
