Love the open shelves! What is the depth of the shelves?

The Sky is the Limit Design
oh - somewhere between 6-8", most likely more around 6...for open shelving you need to determine what you want to store or display there. 8-9" is good if small books need to go there as well, but it wouldn't be enough for coffeetable books - then you would need 12...as this is a keydrop and display area, and the real purpose behind the existence of this unit is that I had to create a logical wrap around effect around a structural post the available depth was pretty much a given....

What type of wood veneer did you use on the upper (lighter) cabinets? Are the boxes MDF or plywood?

They appear to be the very inexpensive knock-off version of DWR's LEM "Piston" barstool. They are available at allmodern.com.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Play with proportion. Designed for a bachelor who lives in Victoria, British Columbia, this kitchen features textured Italian laminates in a faux-wood design, offset with stainless steel accents. "The laminates are a good contrast with the area's ever-so-popular oak flooring," Hanl says. "I played with proportion by using a balance of horizontal and vertical directions in the wood grains and an accent cabinet in a mushroom lacquer."The curved tall unit on the left has stainless steel edging that accentuates the shape's dynamics. It hides a structural post but also serves as a display unit and a place for keys. "He asked for a hint of blue, which we brought in with the quartz countertop as well as in the tile backsplash at the sink," Hanl elaborates. "The three-dimensional wave-shaped glass mosaic, which covers the entire window wall, combines all the colors I used in the kitchen."
Fred Albert added this to Get the Look of Wood Cabinets for Less
Designer Ines Hanl outfitted this Vancouver kitchen with cabinets faced in a textured-wood laminate. The combination of light and dark finishes not only makes the space feel lighter, but limits the pattern repetition that can cheapen the look of laminate.
