SPECIAL PROJECT FEATURE: Lofty Ambitions
When a downtown loft and an uptown “classic 5” come together, you get this chic contemporary industrial Park Avenue loft stunner. Drama is the order of the day with moody dark finishes, contrasted with a honed marble island top. A traditional rolling library ladder interpreted in modern black lacquer makes short work of the high ceiling-level cabinets.
LUSTROUS METAL & LUSH TEXTURE
The star of the show is the patinated stainless steel surface of the wall cabinets, whose golden undertones echo the blackened brushed gold decorative hardware. Leathered limestone backsplash tiles and honed black granite countertops are upstaged only by the horizontal-grained rift cut white oak bases with ebony stain and wire-brushing effect.
CLASSIC MEETS CONTEMPORARY
A classically-themed frieze panel atop the glass shelving creates an eclectic counterpoint to contemporary crystal, serving pieces and artwork. Mirror behind the shelves lends additional glamour, doubles the light, and banishes shadows in the corner.
