A refined, old-world furniture look currently known as a Belgian style kitchen.
Comfort comes first in a Belgian style kitchen. And what’s cozier than an old leather chair on an Oriental rug just a few steps away from the kitchen’s work space? This is a lovely design by SieMatic, a German cabinet concern in pale shades of white and cream, akin to butter and cream. First, there’s a hutch-like arrangement of an upper cabinet with glass doors and sides set over a S Clermont sink base cabinet so that it looks like a hutch. This also is the first instance I’ve seen of a stainless farm sink set into a wood counter that arcs up behind the faucet to create an integral backsplash. Plus there’s a side gallery rail — another hutch detail. Additionally, cabinets have feet instead of toe kicks. The island, open at the bottom, is designed as a freestanding workbench. Kitchen “furniture” also includes the impressive black La Cornue range under a sculptural tiled hood with a shelf for display. Then there’s comfortable seating adjacent to the kitchen — as if it’s a total living space rather than one that’s devoted only to cooking. The high-gloss hardwood floor provides dramatic contrasts to the overall light color scheme with schoolhouse pendant fixtures illuminating it all.
