Curvy Island Kitchen

Design Notes: It's the fish tank built into the backsplash behind the sink that pushes this kitchen into the "MTV Cribs" stratosphere, but the bespoke island is the room's captivating centerpiece. Finished with a wenge veneer, the curved island has opal glass backlit by color-changing LEDs that provide mood lighting for the room. The custom white cabinets and drawers around the perimeter match the white Corian countertops and also act as a foil to the aquarium's electric blue color. To transition easily from workspace to entertaining space, the kitchen has an "in-use" and "stand-by" mode (shown above). When in stand-by, the downdraft ventilation-made by Gutmann-retracts into the kitchen island and white cabinet doors conceal the shelving on both sides of the refrigerator.
