Press Release by Sub-Zero, Inc. and Wolf Appliance, Inc.

This year marks their 10th Kitchen Design Contest and it has become the most highly regarded award program in the kitchen design industry.  This contest is a way for Sub-Zero and Wolf, Inc. to honor the design community and the significant role they play in making Sub-Zero and Wolf a household name when it involves beautiful kitchen design.  These regional winners truly represent achievement in kitchen design.

A Classic Farmhouse Kitchen

This kitchen re-model, nearing the end of it’s design phase, has been so much fun to work on!  With it’s hand distressed finishes, rustic wood beams, vintage inspired hardware, and hand forged ice box hinges, this Kitchen will offer all the modern day conveniences with a light-hearted ambiance of a warm and welcoming Farmhouse kitchen.

Classic and sophisticated

I really like this design. My original drawing for this kitchen was posted in an earlier blog, and  this is the nearly-finished project.  These are just scouting shots, but as you can see when the finishing touches in the space are complete, it will be special.

This is a detail shot of the ovens, and the use of drywall to complete the design.  This is a great detail, and is one of the design elements that makes this design special and really work.  Notice the drywall openings that the cabients are set into are returned.  This is a complicated detail in the field, but as you can see, well worth the effort.
