Contemporary on the CT River
We worked in many rooms in this uber custom contemporary home in Essex, CT. The kitchen was featured in " Connecticut Cottages & Gardens". It is truly a "one-off" custom. The wood specie here is Sen - an Asian wood used in Japan for premium furniture and cabinetry. Our cabinet maker purchased the Sen log on the global market; which was sent to Pennsylvania to be quarter cut and turned into veneer for the project. The twelve foot ceiling is enhanced by the vertical grain match of the cabinetry. The wood has subtle depth features inside the grain that seems to change as you change position within the space.
- integrated hood and refrigerator
- precise 1/8" reveals at floor, cabinet joints and ceiling
- stone tops in dark green with movement adding to the organic yet modern feel
- linear bar pulls in varying sizing relative to millwork
- counter extends into window as as sill extension making for more glass and more room behind the sink
