Kitchen contemporary-kitchen


These young clients wanted a modern kitchen. Since their home is located in a heavily wooded area, our concept was to take cues from nature. We started with the simple slab door front cabinets, and then brought in organic, “barky” looking glass back splash and rice paper laminated in glass for the upper cabinet fronts. The granite has very bold crystals which we thought resembled sliced tree trunks. The sheers in the adjoining room soften the wall of windows, and give a hint to the tree shapes beyond.

To add some visual excitement, we played off the angle of the opposite wall for this Franklin kitchen’s island. We elevated the glass to bar height, and it appears to float in the space. Our clients report that it’s not only used to sit at, but works wonderfully for entertaining. Since it’s raised, it works well for a buffet surface, but doesn’t interfere with the cook.

@ dek315: it may be a good idea to contact Dunlap Design Group, who posted the photo, and ask them directly. You'll get the most accurate answer this way.

@ Brian C - That is incorrect - AKDY has a display in the front, this hood doesn't.

Fortunately, the designer has helped us out here with a great description and additional photos of this stunning kitchen. If you click on the photo, you'll see that it has a couple of other photos in the same project. This close-up shows glass tile (a surprise to me when seeing it from a distance!):

He also describes is at “barky” looking glass back splash.

Walker Zanger makes some very nice glass tiles, although I do not know whether the tiles shown here are from this firm.
