What’s Cooking

A buffet of kitchen products serves up creativity and function in style

ORGANIC TOUCH
Tommy Bahama’s Kapa collection of handcrafted concrete tiles for Lunada Bay Tile conjures an organic feel, with three-dimensional, wallpaper-like leaf patterns and embossed, textural surfaces. Pictured here: Shangri La Fauna, which comes in eight colors that coordinate with the brand’s Tommy Bahama glass tiles. lunadabaytile.com

FABULOUS FIXTURE
Graceful curves define the Studio S Kitchen Faucet Collection from American Standard. The minimalist design features a magnet that keeps the spray head in place and a one-and-a-half-gallon per minute flow rate. The fixtures come in matte black, polished chrome and stainless steel; the Semi-Professional Pull-Down Faucet is pictured. americanstandard.com

LIVING COLOR
Virginia-based Alison Giese Interiors has teamed with Baltimore’s Unique Kitchens and Baths to create a new line of cabinetry called AGI Color Selects. The collection boasts a palette of complementary colors and stains curated by Giese. An Ashburn project by the designer (opposite) features the cabinetry in Candlewick, a warm white, and Peppercorn, a deep blue-black; the textured subway-tile backsplash and aged brass, bronze and wood tones add coziness and warmth. uniquekitchensandbaths.net

EXOTIC CHOICE
Snaidero USA’s Elegante Bespoke cabinetry collection presents homeowners with five exotic-wood options and a range of finishes including lacquer, ceramic, glass, melamine or laminate. Pictured, left: A kitchen currently on view at Snaidero DC Metro’s showroom in Alexandria contrasts minimalist white cabinets with the Elegante collection’s sumptuous High Gloss Fumé Eucalyptus accents. snaiderodcmetro.com

RIGHT ANGLE
A recent addition to The Tile Shop’s offerings, geometric Doree mosaic tile combines wood-look porcelain and Carrara and Black Marquina marble in a graphic and vibrant combination. Suitable for floor and wall applications, the pattern complements both classic and contemporary environments. Available at area locations. tileshop.com

BELLS & WHISTLES
French door refrigerators in GE’s Café line come with a bottom freezer, icemaker, water dispenser and LED interior lighting. Options include custom door handles and smart-appliance features such as WiFi connectivity and on-demand Keurig K-Cup brewing to ensure your coffee will be ready when you are. Pictured here in matte black. Available at area ADU—Your Appliance Source locations. adu.com

STRONG STATEMENT
Blue Note Circles, a glossy glass mosaic, makes a statement above the range in a Falls Church kitchen by Case Design/Remodeling (below). It’s framed by hand-glazed ceramic subway tile that ties the room together. Part of Artistic Tile’s Jazz Glass collection, the mosaic pattern is available at area Architectural Ceramics locations. architecturalceramics.com

LIMITED EDITION
A chic, limited-edition version of the restaurant-style Viking 7 Series range comes in cast black with rose-gold accents. With a production run of only 110 units, it boasts the series’ usual features: a convection oven; 23,000 BTU elevated burners; a chrome griddle with grease containment; and an LED-backlit control panel.

STAY COOL

Bells and whistles include a 3.5-inch, full-color touchscreen display integrated into the interior, LED side-wall lighting and an app-controlled SmartDeviceBox that allows you to activate settings and features while on the go. liebherr.com

PLAY IN CONTRASTS
George Myers and Mark Kaufman of GTM Architects teamed with Margery Berringer-Schuran of Berringer Design & Consulting to deliver a chic, open-plan kitchen to Bethesda clients looking for functionality and a modern aesthetic. A play in contrasts, the space marries white-painted cabinetry on one wall with plain-sawn, matching vertical-grain walnut cabinets on another. “This look is a popular trend right now,” says Kaufman. “It adds warmth and beauty with a contemporary feel.” Cabinets by Crystal Cabinetry; crystalcabinets.com

MOD MOTIF
A high-contrast, black-and-white motif characterizes the Heritage Collection from Portugal. Mimicking the look of encaustic cement, the glazed porcelain tiles come in an eight-by-eight-inch format and in four patterns: Infinite, Nostalgia, Timeless and Tradition (pictured above). Low-maintenance, durable and suited to floor and wall applications, it’s available at area Best Tile locations. besttile.com

EUROPEAN STYLE

Available at area USA Cabinet Store, LLC, locations including a new showroom in Chantilly. usacabinetstore.com

CHEF’S KITCHEN

Pictured above in gray steel with a stainless-steel combination cooking-and-washing zone, the collection also features hidden options such as a wood chopping board (above, left and right) that conceals rolling pins and a magnetic knife rack. scavoliniusa.com
