This elegant kitchen design was designed by Richard Anuzkiewicz for clients that were renovating their circa-1910 waterfront home in Maryland. The couple entertain frequently and tend to do more congregating than cooking in the kitchen, so graciousness topped their wish list.
Anuszkiewicz balanced the island’s size and drama with a pair of Chantilly chandeliers by Vaughan. Embellished with crystal garlands and blossoms, the duo is a showstopper: “You can’t do understated with this island.” The island unit itself is nearly 11 feet long and was crafted from walnut, imbuia and anigre. The wood is sealed to resist scratches, spills, heat and stains.
Posh drawers, constructed of solid walnut echo the wood on the island. The range is La Cornue.
