Fairfax Station Kitchen - Corner Window Contemporary Kitchen, DC Metro

Metal base cabinetry, industrial-style pendant lighting, and a grey granite countertop give the kitchen a commercial feel. Warm wood and display cabinetry makes it feel homey.

Thanks for the question! Unfortunately this project was completed a while ago and we don't have a record of the final granite selection. Based on a bit of research, my best educated guess would be the color "Lavender Blue" (don't let the name fool you -- it's often closer to gray). Hope this helps! -Emily

Beautiful pendants. Who makes them? - If records are no longer available, suggestions of similar pendants would be greatly appreciated! There is such a huge selection in the pendant category - starting from scratch in a search is overwhelming.

Thank you, Emily. Those are all names that I haven't come across so great places to start.

how did you keep the grain of the granite flowing in the corner? Did it change direction, so runs horizontal from corner one way and vertical the other?

Thanks for the question! Unfortunately since this project is from a few years ago, we do not have the granite countertop shop drawings anymore, so we can't say exactly. To answer your question though, most countertops will end up having a seam in the corner due to slab size limitations. The grain of the countertop likely changes direction at a seam near the sink, and the pattern probably does not line up exactly. If they were trying very hard to make the grain line up, they may have tried to cut the granite diagonally a bit so the grain is flowing on an angle on all pieces of the countertop.

Thanks for the question! Unfortunately this project was completed a
while ago and we don't have a record of the granite name.

Based on a bit
of research, the closest color we have found is "Lavender Blue" (don't
let the name fool you -- it's often closer to gray). Other suggestions
have included Metallica, Cosmus, Brown Teak, and Saturnia. Hope this helps!

What is the metal rack above the range top? - Other pictures of this same area look like the rack is adjustable. What is it for? And, what is it called?

Hi and thanks for the question! The racks behind the range are optional accessories (they are removable/adjustable) that can be purchased to go with the Viking range and hood.

The accessories available from Viking can be found here:

(Please note, this kitchen was completed several years ago so some Viking accessories may no longer be available.)

Thanks for the question! This project was completed some time ago and the final installed selections may have changed, but the original selection was Marmoleum color 3075, Shell. You may want to look here to find your perfect color: http://www.forboflooringna.com/Commercial-Flooring/Products/Marmoleum/Marmoleum-the-next-generation/Marmoleum-Real/ -Emily

Hi and thanks for the question! Unfortunately, this project was completed some time ago and we do not have a record of the exact color name. However, Sherwin-Williams' "Spare White" #6203 might be a good alternative!

where is the garbage and does it have a swing door or a pull out door - I have a similar kitchen we are remodeling and don't want the garbage to interfere with the person at the sink or trap them when it is in use. I couldn't tell where you placed yours and what kind or door it has. appreciate your help.

Hi and thanks for the question! In this kitchen the wastebasket is in a cabinet to the right of the sink (between the corner cabinet and the dishwasher). It has a door on it which hinges on the right and then the trash can pulls out. -Emily
