West Chop Residence Kitchen

Unexpected materials and objects worked to creat the subte beauty in this kitchen. Semi-precious stone was used on the kitchen island, and can be back-lit while entertaining. The dining table was custom crafted to showcase a vintage United Airlines sign, complimenting the hand blown glass chandelier inspired by koi fish that hangs above.

This island is constructed of semi precious white quartz. It can be backlit with a series of rope lights we installed within the cabinetry.
