Led by, “style before function”, this charming French style kitchen was the dream of a University French teacher. With a strong vision and the desire to have exactly what she wanted, the client, who spends a lot of time in France, was all about the details.
With every element carefully considered, the team at Past Basket in Geneva, Illinois combined traditional qualities of proportion with materials and textures to create three workspaces. A unique plaster hood is the focal point of the room and encompasses the entire cooking area. A contrasting island in Fumed Oak was designed with the feel of an antique French table and boasts exposed plumbing, which is concealed inside outer pipes featuring the same finish as the cabinet hardware. A hammered zinc top adds a French detail that would have been found at the turn of the century. Completing the look is a beautifully crafted hutch, showcasing diamond pattern detail and elegant brackets. Carefully selected tiles and countertops, along with brushed Oak, wide plank flooring adds to the overall feel of a European space.
Working within the existing footprint, the designers achieved left and right symmetry while creating a subtly elegant space. Bien fait Past Basket!
