Black cabinets and matching French range provide a modernized twist on the black and white kitchen.
In a kitchen designed by Daniel Cuevas for a new, art-filled home in Beverly Hills, the cabinets are key to creating the elegant luxe style that feels French and just a bit Deco but is thoroughly chic and modern.
The furniture in question is black steel with nickel banding – a custom design from Urban Archaeology called Lenox. While the sleek base cabinets are reminiscent of La Cornue’s classic Cuisine de Chateau line, the uppers have unique doors composed of a nickel-tone metal mesh over a metal backing panel — which gives them the look of an industrial folding screen panels. To say UA’s Lenox line is exclusive is no understatement. The manufacturer’s website provides few details aside from the name and the color.
Huge steel casement windows flanking the range provide ample light and helps offset the inky counters, too At night it must be very romantic though how practical it proves for a family with three teenagers we may never know. What is clear is that, paired with a black Lacanche range and a graphic modern Ann Sacks dimensional tile range guard, this is a mix of styles that looks like no other kitchen I’ve seen. And I love it.
