Black Steel Custom Cabinet Kitchen

black and white kitchen with Lenox steel and nickel black cabinets - Veranda via AtticmagBlack 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.

    That is one of the most distinctive kitchens I’ve ever seen. Amazing!

    I love it, too!

    (Of course, the realist in me looked at it more critically, and then remembered how my black bathroom vanity shows EVERYTHING–every smudge, water spot, streaks….when the sun is shining through the bathroom window……)

    If the kitchen came with someone who would wipe it all down a few times a day, I’d consider it! :)

    Ha! Catmom, you are so right. I almost put that into the article but in this particular case I’m sure there is ample help to deal with all that.

    This kitchen is in a family home with 3 teens. Even worse than the black, probably, is the nickel banding which will show every smudge. I’m not much for black in the kitchen after having a black granite counter in the laundry room where I see every speck of dust.

    But this is a gorgeous and unique kitchen and those cabinets will last two lifetimes.
