A Kitchen That Takes Modern Elegance to New Heights
LEADING CALIFORNIA-BASED ARCHITECT DAN BRUNN PARTNERED WITH CANTONI TO CREATE A STUNNING KITCHEN THAT BRIDGES MODERN ELEGANCE AND INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS FOR HIS “BRIDGE HOUSE” IN LOS ANGELES.
Brunn opted for natural matte oak and dark grey matte lacquer cabinetry from Aster Cucine’s Contempora Collection. “I was inspired by nature and though we typically do solid color kitchen cabinets, I wanted to introduce something with more tonality and texture,” Brunn explains. “We chose the open-pore oak, which gives it a real earthy feel, yet at the same time, the clean lines add sophistication.”
Along with the custom cabinetry, integration was crucial in the design of the kitchen. Appliances such as the refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher, for instance, were concealed behind the full overlay cabinets for a more streamlined look. To keep drawers organized and kitchen essentials easily accessible, they integrated custom kitchen drawer organizers in a variety of materials, namely wood to complement the cabinetry.
From concept to completion, Cantoni worked closely with Brunn and his team to ensure both a seamless and enjoyable process. “I love Cantoni because they offer the services and products I’m after,” Brunn says. They have local representation and incredible staff that followed through with the entire project.”
Cantoni, whose kitchen expertise ranges from residential to commercial projects, believes a kitchen is more than just a set of cabinets and doors, and the fully functional kitchen at the Bridge House is no exception. It provides a chef-worthy space that radiates modern elegance with a domesticated feel.
