Can you share the brand of cabinetry?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Open shelving gives the kitchen a light and spacious feel and holds the family's crisp white china. The wide drawers under the stone countertops provide ample storage for other kitchenware.
Don't: Neglect to dust. It's a fact: Open shelves collect dust and even grease if they are near the stove. Storing frequently used items on open shelves will eliminate some of the need to dust and clean, since you will be regularly using and washing these things anyway. But higher shelves and less-used pieces will get grimy over time. The best approach is to try to stay on top of it by dusting and wiping down surfaces regularly.
