Blending one part daring with a dash of fearlessness, show stoppers are concocted using noteworthy materials.
For his Paris apartment, Jean Louis-Deniot designed full overlay cabinetry clad in hammered silver, but to control costs, he had them made in Morocco. The flooring, countertops and backsplash are marble, as are toe kicks that give the cabinets a floating effect. Each section was treated separately with hardware; upper doors were left unadorned, lower cabinetry have chunky knobs and the wall of cabinets featured over-sized pulls — both in a hammered finish. Gracefully hanging overhead is a vintage Italian Stilnovo chandelier.
Always pushing the limits, designer Kelly Wearstler created a stunning brass island with decorative columns holding pass through cabinets above. An inset of ornamental brads are another unique detail. Following a trend, the pull finish repeats the metal. Marble makes another appearance, but this time in black. Multiple custom pendants were used instead of dreaded can lighting.
This stainless steel island with brass trim is actually one of a pair flanking the modern dining table. The kitchen, with its graphic patterned floor, is another Wearstler creation. Perimeter cabinets are honey color alder wood with black granite. Numerous frosted glass and brass pendants complete this seriously swanky space.
