This kitchen was part of a major home remodel. The new homeowners wanted to create an open, airy environment that would enable them to meld their eclectic tastes and the furnishings from two homes in the boroughs of New York City. The desire for an island and an eat-in kitchen led us to open a wall and create a dual level island to serve as work space and table. The addition of white glass tile and a fabulous contemporary chandelier balanced the wood floor and traditional chairs. The result is user friendly for cooking and entertaining alike.
