Kitchen

A dark navy blue La Cornue range is set into a nook that is flanked by arched cherry doors for the refrigerator on the right and a pantry cupboard on the left.

Designer

Kitchen designer Jim Dove of Canterbury Design.

Island

A thick squared-off edge modernizes the Danby marble top of the center island.

Details on the following slides.

Sink

An arched chrome faucet from Kallista is one of the minimalist features that keep the kitchen feeling clean-lined and contemporary.

Lantern Lighting

Two large-scale fixtures from Remains Lighting visually balance the weight of the island. The lanterns are embellished with curved nickel bands around the top of the glass, subtly mimicking the arch above the range and on the tops of doors.

Dining Area

A round mahogany table from Hickory Chair relaxes when mixed with whitewashed side chairs with fretwork backs (a nod to classic Chinese Chippendale designs).

Crystal Cabinet

A built-in hutch designed by Melissa Seibold has burled alder door panels, crown molding, and beveled-glass doors with serpentine lead cames. Enclosing old radiators created a space in a corner for the hutch, which is visible from the kitchen and dining areas.

Floating Island

Tapered metal-banded legs and a recessed mirrored toekick reflect the floor and give the illusion that the island is floating. The visual trick lightens the mass of the island and introduces a modern feel to the traditional kitchen.

Interior Designers

Laurie Finn (standing) and Mary Dore of La Jolie Maison Interior Design, headquartered in Summit, New Jersey.

Timeless Hardware

Blue-and-green-patterned fabrics for draperies and pillows add color to the serene and neutral palette.

Timeless Hardware

Cherry doors on the refrigerator and pantry are accented by Baxter bronze hardware with a “living finish,” which develops a patina over time, particularly on areas where it is frequently touched.

Stovetop

Jim Dove and the Canterbury Design team chose a navy blue French range from La Cornue, which combines the charm of a classic European stove with the functionality of modern amenities.
