French Antique

French Anitque-Style Kitchen
Photo: Michelle Wurth

"We designed the kitchen with cognac-stained maple cabinets, allotting space for an antique piece under the sink before we had even found one. With the detail above the windows, the sink base created a natural focal point.

 

"We wanted to use an older piece because the home was in an historical area and we had used antique doors on the pantry. The clients were concerned initially, but we found an antique French buffet that fit in the space about three weeks before the rest of the cabinetry arrived. We replaced the back with one cut out for plumbing and replaced the wood top with granite. We saved the original parts so that one day the buffet could be used again as a freestanding piece."
