Asian-Inspired Redo Adds Forms & Function

  • Designer Trudy Tripple, CKD, of Glenview, IL-based DDK Kitchen Design, Inc., designed this kitchen for a client she describes as an “energetic senior who loves to travel.”
  • A large 82"x54" island is the centerpiece of the space and provides much-needed seating opportunities that the existing kitchen lacked.
  • The Afrormosia veneer cabinets, custom from Dutch Made, were also a custom height to accommodate a 2.5" Cosmos granite top, a favorite of the client. The grain pattern in the Afrormosia is completely matched on the doors around the kitchen.
  • Integrated appliances dot the space, adding to a clean, streamlined look, including a GE SpaceSaver microwave hidden behind a pocket door, a cooktop and double oven with warming drawer from Dacor, a 736 Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Miele dishwasher. A black Blanco Silgranit sink is positioned above the dishwasher and is highlighted by a black matte faucet by Hamat, an Israeli manufacturer.
