This is perhaps the best kitchen I have yet seen....however, I would be concerned that cooking spatters would constantly be a problem on the window behind the range, glass not being too forgiving with that sort of thing. Was this not a consideration in this design?

It was considered. It is hard to see here, but the countertop is deeper than normal at the cooktop, and the hood is an island style hood pulled away from the windows a bit. The owner has not commented on this being a problem.

I think it is some kind of waxed finish, but I am not sure.

This installation was designed by Deep River Partners, fabricated by a custom millwork company (A. Fillinger Inc. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin), and installed by a finish carpenter. The cushions were then produced by a local custom sewing shop (Paul Wiese Inc.).

Ah, ruffled feathers. Apologies first, eclecticedwardian, your academic offering was, and is appreciated from the beginning, as I stated early on. And I don’t question your veracity nor passions. But forgive our muddling, it is difficult to not be human. There is much for all of us to learn, that is what makes my creative 40 year professional life interesting, I have always been a sucker for my personal and professional enlightenment. That is why I chose to commit myself to course work in both architecture and interior design - not to become one of those, nor a doctor or lawyer, but to further my ability to bring beautiful objects to those who wish to live in a beautiful home, or office, too. (including many who prowl the halls of Houzz.com). Too bad this conversation isn’t sitting around a coffee table over a glass of wine, we might understand each other better, and smile.

But I might add, the conversation led to other thoughts about the impact those early architects and designers had on all of us today - the mash up I spoke of (not what you might find at a Dead concert, thanks). Much of my part in this conversation concerns my own selfish interest in furniture (and other objects too) design throughout history. Many of the people we refer to during those incredible design times were not architects but still had a tremendous impact on western design and contributed to that mash up. And bumbling was hardly my thought, rather, once again, it is more about the discovery we are all impacted by on a daily basis if we are open to learn, by what we see others doing….even Wright and Sullivan must have had open minds and eyes or they never would have grown into their incredible offering.

My own history also has taught me about a myopic malaise with many architects, designers, furniture makers, manufacturers, and on and on, today, who only respond and duplicate work to the current trend - with no regard for what our antecedents chose to commit their lives to, creativity and exploration. It is more about money to be had than passions to explore. Many home owners/consumers aren’t aware of what they could have, and rely solely on what Ethan Allen has on their showroom floor, and don’t have the time to be passionate as you seemed to be about historical and scholarly study. So they love to read these articles Houzz provides, hoping to enhance there homes. I enjoy the articles myself.

To be clear, I study and listen to remain engaged as a designer and maker. Unfortunately most of my young and “old” furniture maker peers (and architects and interior designers, too), don’t think they needed no stinkin’ art history either, sad - all I heard from the architecture and interior design students was complaints about why they had to take those courses you taught, and how hard they were. And have seen one too many furniture maker with glazed eyes hoping soon t be done with my thoughts. Also sad. As for some of my professors in those courses I took, I seriously appreciated their passions (and what they were teaching me), as they appreciated mine while having me teach workshops not only for the students, but for their own edification on what makes a good piece of furniture - something they had little knowledge of, beyond Knoll. Both structurally and proportionally - what is the difference between a mass produced object and one that is thoughtfully created as uniquely suited to the client, and will last a hundred years? And I can’t count the number of architecture grads who have come to me for a minimum wage job to learn what I do.

So, we learn, and we grow from the mash up that time and discussion lays on our plate if we are open. But thanks for the clarification. Oh, and thanks for enjoying my furniture (that always feels good even after all these years taking chances), I’m grateful for having had the opportunity follow my passions and to spend my life doing what my surgeon father always wanted to do. Now I’m going to go take care of my fea

I love Art Nouveau. I have decorated my home around some wonderful art nouveau antiques. I found two iron panels and had a front door custom made to incorporate them.
