An open floor plan lends itself to a wrap-around kitchen in this upscale Clayton high-rise version of a rugged farmhouse. Multiple cabinet finishes, a large copper hood, and a mixture of stone and wood countertops provide a variety of colors and textures that contrast and flow in this truly unique space. A backlit onyx upper bar top overlooks the breakfast area, and transitions to wood as it wraps around to the living and dining areas. Hefty hardware and cunning panels transform a Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer into an old farmhouse icebox. A raised dishwasher provides easier access for the homeowners and ties in perfectly with the bar height countertops. Columns, pipes, plumbing chases and ceiling ductwork originally located for a different kitchen layout had to be concealed, accommodated, or disguised. Architectural details, including a tin ceiling and rough hewn beams, complete the farmhouse look. Around the corner, a bar area serves the adjacent dining room, complete with prep sink, ice maker, refrigerator drawers and warming drawer. Pewter chicken wire inserts reveal display shelves housing a portion of the homeowner’s extensive glass and china collections. The project was truly a collaborative effort between owner, architect, interior designer, and kitchen designer.
