NY LoftContemporary Kitchen, New York
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Clean and sleek, this modern kitchen — with its stunning waterfall marble island — is in a Manhattan loft. Four iconic white Norman Chernier stools provide seating, and the lighting comes from delicate glass pendants. A dark floor adds contrast, allowing each of the elements to pop.
How do you keep a white-on-white space from feeling cold and clinical? Weave in materials that have an innate warmth, such as this dark-stained flooring. The marble used for the island top has an organic quality that gives the space a hint of vitality.
They are available in black, white and ash finishes. Before seeing this image, I hadn't imagined one of these tables fitting into a sleek white space, but it's a perfect choice.More: Lessons of the EamesesCharles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the PainterModern Icons: The Eames Walnut StoolModern Icons: The Noguchi Coffee TableModern Icons: The Great Nelson Bench
Mod-ish: Between the white marble waterfall counter, white Cherner stools, white cabinets and white walls, this kitchen is about as white as it gets. The dark wood floors create continuity between the kitchen and the other areas in the space.
Contemporary: Always on the cutting edge of design, you lean toward the best the market has to offer, from Calacatta marble waterfall countertops to the timeless trend of mid-century furnishings — updated in a polished white finish of course.
White cabinets and white marble are the go-to classics for the all-white kitchen. Punched up with funky bentwood white stools and an Eames white leather lounge chair with white sheepskin rug in the rooms beyond, this open floor plan declares itself as modern, clean and fun.
7. White (eggshell, snow, ivory, etc.) often reveals clarity, innocence, and pure simplicity. White is the perfect palette to make architectural elements sing. Nearly all colors tend to distract from and compete with architecture and furnishings, but white elevates and emphasizes style and aesthetic details. White embodies the power to transcend climate, radiating warmth and coziness in the winter and offering fresh, cool relief in the summer.
