Cool + Collected What's Cooking? Modern Farmhouse Style
During the renovation of a home in McLean by Devereaux & Associates Architects and Great Jones Development, Shawna J. Dillon, NCIDQ, ASID, of Studio Snaidero DC Metro was tapped to redesign the kitchen with a rustic yet sophisticated sensibility. Collaborating with interior designer Jeanne Griffin, she selected Lux Classic cabinetry—conceived by Pietro Arosio for Snaidero—made of melamine with a Medium Oak finish. Shaker-style doors and inset, polished-chrome hardware create clean lines. The island is topped by striking Calacatta Cielo marble with waterfall edges, sourced through Gramaco. snaiderodcmetro.com

Sleek Style
Roble Polvo cabinetry in a vertical-grain wood veneer adds warmth to a sleek kitchen by Porcelanosa. The peninsula is topped with Snow White Krion, an acrylic-resin surface. porcelanosa-usa.com

Cooking with Steam
Dacor’s Pro Dual-Fuel Steam Range features a steam-and-convection oven and six dual-stack sealed burners. It can be controlled remotely via Dacor’s IQ Kitchen app, which connects to the oven’s touch-screen panel. dacor.com

On a Curve
The curved Danielle faucet by O’Neil Ruppel comes in several finishes, and in both bridge and wall-mounted versions. Available exclusively through Renaissance Tile & Bath. renaissancetileandbath.com; oneilruppel.com

Time Sensitive
Ann Sacks’s Craze tiles use a glass-like glaze to create the crackle effect imposed by time on ancient Italian pottery. The eight-by-12-inch porcelain tiles come in black, gray and white and can be used indoors or out. annsacks.com

Industrial Vibe
Urban, a porcelain countertop surface by SapienStone, mimics the look of cement that’s been irregularly finished with a spatula. The result is tactile, with an industrial vibe. Available in Natural, Anthracite and Argento finishes. sapienstone.com

Work of Art
A pattern reminiscent of brushstrokes characterizes Latitude, Emser Tile’s new collection for floors and walls. The glazed, body-matched porcelain tiles come in five neutral hues, and in both large-format sizes and mosaics. emser.com

Classic Profile
Top Knobs has added to its Devon Collection with the Torbay cabinet-pull series. Distinguished by clean-lined curves and a classic profile, the pulls come in six sizes and eight finishes—each conveying its own aesthetic. topknobs.com

Bridge Too Far
The Victorian Bridge Faucet from DXV evokes the era for which it was named, while bringing modern convenience to bear with an energy-efficient, drip-free spigot that swivels 360 degrees. Available in polished chrome, ultra-steel and carbon bronze through American Standard. americanstandard.com; dxv.com

High Tech
Thermador’s Liberty Induction Cooktop features 11 inductors, three cooking zones and an illuminated panel with 17 settings. Innovations include induction levels that adjust in response to what’s cooking and an initial power boost that then lowers automatically. Available in Titanium Gray or Silver Mirror glass. thermador.com


In the Hood
BlueStar, a maker of restaurant-quality appliances for the home, has unveiled a line of ventilation hoods designed to complement its commercial-style ranges. Pictured here in a bold blue (one of more than 750 custom colors): the 48-inch Bonanza hood and the RNB Series range with French door oven. bluestarcooking.com

Flexible Faucet
Grohe’s Essence Semi-Pro single-handle faucet has been outfitted with an easy-to-clean silicone hose that maximizes maneuverability. Available in 10 colors, it is operable with one hand and boasts 360-degree mobility and a removable spray head. grohe.us

Delicate Hue
Conceived by graphic designer and blogger Joy Cho for Clé, Oh Joy! is a collection of cement tiles in geometric shapes, embellished by motifs in delicate pastel hues. The tiles, made for wall and floor applications, are handcrafted yet durable and can be installed inside or out. cletile.com
