It's not exactly a product -- the contractor and owner found old 2x4s at a salvage yard that had been used as framing behind a plaster wall. You can see some of the old plaster in the white patches. We ripped 1/2" strips off the narrow dimension and used it for the ceiling between the steel.

No, it's actually just stainless steel with a satin finish -- very easy to maintain!

Hi! The countertops Calacatta marble and are 2 1/2" thick -- a lot thicker than normal. Be sure to check the clearance over your dishwasher against your desired counter height before opting for a thicker counter! The long backsplash is stainless steel. Good luck with your project!

How did you make the beautiful trim? - Hi, we really love the design you came up with for this house. We're currently trying to decide on our window and door trim and we may try to model it after the feeling you got in this house. What sort of wood and color did you use for the beams and window trim? Do you think it could work with windows that aren't full wall height? Or any other advice? You can see what we're updating here: http://www.houzz.com/discussions/104059/We-recently-purchased-an-older---67--hom---

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Design School: Embrace the Curve
So what kind of curves do you have going on in your space? Do you need to add some reinforcing curves to balance too many hard, straight lines? Consider adding a few curves, a few circular pieces and a little looseness to your space this year!More: Brilliant Solution: The Curved Sofa
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Workbook: When to Pick Fixtures and Finishes
As you can see from comparing the first two photos here, the decision on how many pendants to use affects how many junction boxes you need on the ceiling — and that decision needs to be made before plans get approved for permits and before the contractor closes up the drywall after rough electrical is done. This is why the professional you hired may focus you on figuring out the lighting plan before picking out the countertops.
Lisa Frederick added this to Off-Kilter Chandeliers Show Spot-On Style
Instead of hanging this chandelier in the center of the kitchen island, these homeowners went for a less expected placement toward the end. That way it shines directly over the island's seating area.

Another thought. I'm convinced to open the wall between kit and liv rm. Use the space at the back door for service bar, for cooking out and extra counterspace, bar, endless possibillities. Matching or CONTRASTING kitchen cabinets will work great. The bar is your seating, leaving ,more space instead of a table
