Luxury European Kitchen

Originally, this small kitchen with a peninsula counter and separate adjacent dining room was stifling, complete with dated and worn finishes.
The new kitchen space with large island and eat-in dining area is the result of an extensive renovation that opened up three smaller spaces into one large area. The new large format windows add a bright and airy feel to the kitchen area while the rustic stone finishes compliment the delicately glazed cabinets that change in elevation for added visual effect. The dark wood finish on the island bar that features a secondary sink, pot storage and natural stone tiles along the supporting column creates a focal point for this sprawling kitchen. Layered lighting, strategic paint schemes and a variety of refined yet rustic finishes make this kitchen with built-in laptop desk, display cabinet and bar seating the perfect space to entertain guests or enjoy a meal with family.

The pendant lights were purchased at Living and Lighting in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada. I apologize, I cannot remember the make.

That looks like a stain on cherry - Woodmode has something similar called Java.

Was granite cut for beam? - Is that a structural beam, and if it is, how was the granite placed around it?
