Objective: To create a functional kitchen with multiple work stations and carry the formality of the home into the new kitchen.
Designer: Peter Salerno, CMKBD
The first view into the kitchen is the stove area. Therefore, the designer concentrated on making the cabinets and mantel a dramatic piece of furniture. These are the only cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling, so the height gives a feeling of grandeur.
The pot drawers on either side of the commercial stove were designed to look like furniture pieces with acanthus columns.
The mantel is supported by two large carved corbels which flank a scrolled acanthus facia.
