A striking example of minimalist contemporary design, the Urban Matrix kitchen is anything but traditional. Vanguard Plus cabinetry, in both Rift-cut Veneer and stainless steel, enhances the modern space. Horizontal wood grain, tilt-up doors on the wall cabinets, and minimal accessories maintain the focus on the kitchen and its workspace.
The Linear Solutions kitchen is strongly influenced by contemporary European design and the increasingly popular minimalist approach to living. Vanguard Plus perimeter cabinets in caramelized bamboo provide a subtle contrast to the island, which showcases the new Turin door style in a Burnished finish. A unique combination of materials and simple geometric shapes all help define this space as low maintenance yet highly sophisticated. The kitchen’s contemporary appeal is carried over into the closet, where contrasting opaque finishes are showcased.
This spacious bath with luxurious West Indies styling combines the traditional beauty and elegance of the Grand Tour door style with the early 19th century finish on Cherry. European Colonial influences are seen in the rich furniture details that include the angled French sink cabinets and the carved mouldings. The shell motif of the Enkeboll trim on the arches reinforces the island motif.
A luxurious group of materials comes together elegantly in the Connoisseur kitchen. While perimeter cabinets feature Cherry Vanguard doors in Black Forest, the eye is naturally drawn to the exotic character of the Macassar Ebony island. Minimalist contemporary design is evident by the restrained presence of wall cabinets and unique refrigerator armoire, which is recessed slightly into the wall. Drawing on contemporary European influences, the kitchen’s offset seating area provides the ideal place to sit and chat with the chef, or to hold grocery bags for unpacking.
Drawing inspiration from a French Country home, the Provence kitchen encompasses an eclectic assembly of furniture pieces, all of which come together to create the relaxed charm of this rural home. The Provence kitchen features only one door style—Bordeaux, but four different finishes used throughout contribute to the feeling of fine furniture pieces. The rustic appeal of this kitchen comes from several areas: the various, contrasting finishes that recall the look of timeless fine furniture pieces, ample storage for the utmost organization, and the unmistakable coziness that comes with being at home.
Hunt Club Valet
Wood-Mode’s elegant Hunt Club Valet dressing room combines high fashion with practical functionality. The spacious walk-in closet features Design Group 84 Barcelona Raised Cherry cabinetry with the Esquire finish. Convenience options are plentiful, allowing for the utmost organization of your wardrobe.
The Metropolitan kitchen is a striking example of contemporary minimalist design. Vanguard Plus Rift-cut Veneer is shown in two variations. The kitchen cabinets feature vertical wood grain with a Champagne finish, while the horizontal wood grain and Steel Grey finish on the media center complements its lighter counterpart. Countertops are a combination of steel and granite. Playing to the concept of clean, contemporary European styling, the Metropolitan Design Theme maintains a focus on the overall look of the space and the materials used. The open floor plan and minimal accessories also help to uphold the room’s focus.
Wood-Mode’s Vanguard style with its crisp lines and smooth surface takes on gourmet styling with the addition of stainless steel. The matte finish on the Sonoma maple door style provides a visual counterpoint to the stainless steel. Over-sized stainless steel pulls, ground glass inserts in the wall cabinet doors, a stainless steel hood, and the one-inch glass tile backsplash enhance the look.
Drawing upon influences from southern Mediterranean cultures, the Old Continent Design Theme returns to the classic old world. A striking combination of Raised and Recessed Esperanto cabinetry with Antique Sienna on Cherry introduces a new door style and finish. The tall wine cabinet features hideaway doors with three variations of optional door panel inserts—Diamond, Scalloped, and Raised.
Drawing inspiration from classic Georgian architecture, the traditional elegance of the Southampton Design Theme is enhanced by Nordic White on Regent Cabinetry. Almost black floors, a wood island countertop, and the Black Forest finish on the hood create a strong contrast to the white cabinetry and architectural details. Two islands with differing heights and a concealed pantry and corner turn-out cabinet enhance the room’s functionality, while a variety of fine furniture and architectural details complete the timeless quality of the room.
