Organic Modern kitchen for bachelor

We love it when you share!

This is a uber modern design we completed a few months ago and just got to shoot so thought would throw it out there into cyberspace!

Overall I think there are some good design points and really different uses of materials. Notably, the “fins” separating cabinets. Since this was made up in my somewhat addled brain, I can honestly say I do not think you will see it anywhere else! I also really like the way we treated the columns that go through all three floors of the home. The architect is known for this and he swears it will withstand any hurricane. But columns poking out all over the kitchen is not that much fun as a designer……in this situation, I was able to hide several of them inside cabinetry. Now you see it, then you don’t!

The kitchen was done for a bachelor who had strong opinions and some great ideas. Loved working with him on this project! The wood is a grain matched walnut and is not as orangeish as the pictures represent.  The wood top is bamboo and I just love it’s organic feel. Note also the pop up outlets. Very handy, very cool! The lights are hand blown glass and the color is magnificent in this space. The handles are all cast aluminum from Duverre.

I am not sure what I was drinking when came up with this idea but I still love it!!

The piling is cleverly hidden and still have storage space!


Two large pull out pantries flank the built in refrig

The backsplash is art glass from Joel Berman Glass

Some left over space created by the blasted columns....but works well for additional storage and wine!

Um, I left early during shoot....and my client thinks he is amusing!!! NO this is NOT paper towel storage!!

Backsplash broke three times...needless to say...was not thrilled...but came out pretty nice!

The pop up outlets..very useful for one level island in a modern aesthetic

What do you think? I am sure this will stir up some debate on the design details!

  1. Great kitchen and most impressive use of cabinetry to hide the columns. I don’t think your client will stay single long with such a wonderul kitchen. 🙂

  2. That’s the best-looking pop-up outlet I’ve ever seen! I love the hood, the Lagos Blue quartz, the floor tile, the walnut cabinets and the great use of space. I like the fins…not for me, but I do like them!

  3. I am in total awe of this kitchen, to such a point that I can hardly think of anything to say about it! To me, for my tastes, it is a perfect concept. I honestly like everything about it, but what I most like, I think, is the purity of the vision. Every single bit of it seems to perfectly compliment every other part.
