French Formal

This charming French design combines creamy neutrals and warm, glazed wood tones for an elegant, classic kitchen.  What appears to be a large decorative armoire in a terra cotta finish is actually a pair of integrated refrigerators framing a microwave concealed behind pocket doors.   Dual islands set perpendicularly create a practical, functional design, allowing distinct work areas, streamlining traffic flow, and providing a seating area that both bridges and delineates the adjoining hearth room.  Ornate French-style carvings are repeated on the hood and island, while a French-style curved doorstyle can be found on the hutch and armoire.  Storage in this space is in abundance through the use of tall wall cabinetry and large, deep drawers.  Additional pantry storage can be found in a small niche beyond the main sink that also houses double wall ovens to serve as a baking center.
