A marble mosaic kitchen backsplash, Carrara marble countertops and high-end hardware give the simple cabinetry a modern luxe look. Sparkly pendant lights are small enough that they don’t block sightlines.
Elegant Chef's Kitchen Luxe materials add appeal to this functional workspace. The kitchen at Tawse Winery channels a striking Parisian bistro with its cool Carrara marble and rich African shedua marquetry, which was tested before installation for durability. A dramatic antique chandelier, found in Paris, highlights the unusually square island, while a mirrored wall adds interest and visually expands the space. Source: House & Home October 2008 issue
