Glam Contemporary Kitchen

A two-story loft living area with floor to ceiling windows calls for an equally open kitchen with style to match the drama of the architecture. This kitchen meets that demand with strong horizontal lines, surfaces with sparkle and sculptural light fixtures that act as artwork.

 

Designer Notes

A sophisticated urban color palette of browns, grays and whites gets a shot of glamour from the shine and sparkle of select surfaces: high-gloss foil cabinets on the island, a mosaic of horizontal "stick" tiles on the backsplash, and gleaming polished quartz counters. The engineered oak veneers of the cabinets have a horizontal grain and integrated pulls to avoid disturbing the kitchen's sightlines with hardware. A downdraft ventilation hood, sleek electric cooktop, and integrated refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher serve the same discreet purpose. In keeping with the loft's openness, the kitchen has just one wall: A stand-alone "pod" encases the ovens and pantry storage. Behind the pod, a floating staircase with cable railing leads up a tiled feature wall to the second-story balcony, which overlooks the dramatic dual chandeliers.
