Arched Entrance to Old World Kitchen

Interior columns and an arched entry set apart this kitchen in Old World style.

Reclaimed Tin Range Hood

Ornate details abound in this Old World kitchen, including the metallic range hood. The reclaimed tin hood shell features scrollwork similar to the moldings throughout the space.

Elegant Chandeliers With Shades

Scrolling chandeliers draw the eye upward to the kitchen's extraordinary ceiling. The hexagonal tray ceiling features recessed lighting and dark-stained beams.

A sizable walnut island anchors the kitchen with utility and sophistication. Upholstered barstools strike an Old World note with their leather seats and decorative backs.
