Best of Class — Specialty

Clients approached kitchen designer Davida Rodriguez with a request: They wanted an entertainment center complete with a bar and three large, flat-screen TVs so that they would have a place to gather and watch sports. Rodriguez went modern in style, lining two walls with cherry cabinetry by Sorrento in an espresso finish topped with Lagos Azul Quartz counters. One bank of cabinets lines the wall below the three televisions; the cabinets offer storage for remotes and other equipment while the counter holds gaming consoles and DVD and Blu-ray players. 

The bar area opposite includes glass-fronted cabinets for displaying glassware, mini food and beverage refrigerators and an under-counter sink. A raised travertine backsplash finishes the look.
