Tequila Sunrise

Thu 06 2010

A high gloss lacquer slab door and a tequila sunrise countertop were the defining bold contrasts that set the tone for this showroom, powder room.  Comfort was not left to chance, with the selection of a bidet-toilet unit featuring a heated seat. A user-friendly space was created through the inclusion of a raised counter area, magnifying mirror and bar stool. Tia Moras


Industrial Innovation

A horizontal grain walnut veneer was used on the cabinets, following a continuous line across the face of the cabinetry, while custom-painted glass is featured on the upper sliding glass doors and on the L-shaped eating ledge. The backside of the island contains 12-inch deep full height cabinets that allow for concealed storage solutions. The restored warehouse effect of the concrete block wall gives the showroom the added attraction of resourceful design and comfortably recreated space. Rosemary Merrill

Pushing the Envelope

The space conveys its downplayed identity as a sleek bar, rather than an obvious kitchen. Some other cool features include a dishwasher concealed behind an integrated leather double drawer panel, an electric cooktop tucked under a portion of the walnut countertop, and a sink hidden from sight with a removable section of countertop.
