Like Whatthefont but for interior products? Help me find my dream sink?

Is there a website/forum/secret society that can help identify specific products from pictures submitted? This time, specifically, I'm looking for this gorgeous bathroom sink, or something remotely close to it. But in general, i wonder if there's place that functions like Whatthefont does for fonts, where you upload a picture, and a community of enthusiasts can comment with their best guess on the origin of the item. Thanks!

Maybe Reddit's /r/homeimprovement or /r/diy.

People post "where can I find . . . ?" questions on ApartmentTherapy sometimes. Like this question.

Not helping in the general case, but that bathroom sink seems to be from a company called Agape: Below: in the remodelled powder room, an anastasia Wiltshire portrait hangs above a hand basin by italian design firm Agape.

My guess is that it's Ottocento painted black, with black hardware.

Another option is a reverse Google Image Search:

1) Go to
2) Click on the lil camera icon in the search field
3) Upload from your computer, or give it a URL of a publicly-accessible image
4) Hit search!

For part two of your question: um, Ask Metafilter?

I mean, you got your exact sink there in less than an hour (jacquilynne absolutely nails it, and the sink comes in a two-two white/dark grey version so it's probably not even painted). I bet if you added an update asking for additional similar sinks you'll probably get more suggestions. I mean, Italian designer sink with only 3 dealers in the US too complicated? Here's some Kohler options (Bannon, Brockway, Iron Flute with console mount) that should be much easier to source.

You may have some luck with Houzz.

Oh wow indeed, Metafilter wins! Thanks guys for the options, i should have no problem taking from there. I'm based in the NL, but as long as i know the manufacturer i can probably manage to get it delivered.
I'll keep an eye on apartment therapy, but indeed, the efficiency of Metafilter is unbeatable!

There are some real obsessives on the Gardenweb forums who answer questions like these.
