It's a big deal because:
1. Our basement bathroom is anything but big.
2. This sink is nowhere to be found online or even when you call Ikea's automated stock check phone number (you'll note that link only shows you the big sink, but ours is a mere 15"x16")
3. It was there, live, in the flesh, which is the most shocking thing of all. A trip to Ikea where everything you want is actually on the shelves is major news. I had to share. Okay, brag.
p.s. It's okay if at first you think it looks a tad like a urinal. I had the same thoughts too. However, I'll argue that that just adds to the whole "men's club" feel, doesn't it?
