Hidden From View

A large Sub-Zero refrigerator is hidden behind cabinet fronts, helping the kitchen maintain its historic look and feel.

Perfect Fit

A roomy farmhouse sink makes cleanup a breeze and keeps with the classic look of the space.

Details Make the Difference

The distressed black walnut top and added corbels offer character and detail to the kitchen's center island.

Handy Storage

A combination of open and closed storage built into the custom island helps keep kitchen essentials close by and controls clutter from building up on the counters.

Smart Layout

With plenty of space on all sides, the center island serves as the command center of the kitchen. The kitchen's large custom copper hood is a showstopper that adds presence to the room.
