Hot finds elevate kitchen performance in style

BALANCING ACT—Falmec’s Spazio hanging island hood integrates shelves to hold cooking equipment and an optional tray for plants. The Italian-made design is equipped with power outlets and USB ports; accessories include a tablet holder for easy recipe viewing. Available in two sizes at area ABW Appliances locations. falmec.ie; abwappliances.com

LA DOLCE VITA—Innately Italy, a new DC-based company, collaborates with high-end Italian manufacturers to provide custom kitchens, cabinets and furniture to U.S. homeowners and their designers at affordable price points. Owner Aurora Ferrari, who hails from Parma, outfitted her family’s Cleveland Park kitchen with a sculptural, dual-height island made of Fenix, a scratch- and fingerprint-resistant surface. Tall, white-lacquered cabinets conceal a full pantry, storage drawers, refrigerator and freezer. A De Majo chandelier and chair by Colico complete the polished look. innatelyitaly.com

OUT FRONT—Shaws’ new Gallery collection unveils timeless apron-front sinks emblazoned with eye-catching motifs, from natural flora to bold graphics. Designs are fired onto the brand’s Shaker and Lancaster fireclay vessels in a special kiln, then glazed to perfection. Pictured: a Lancaster sink in Gold Metallic. houseofrohl.com

SLEEK SILHOUETTE—Thermador’s Masterpiece Series Kitchen Suite features modern, clean-lined appliances that can be easily integrated into new or remodeled kitchens.

ON THE SURFACE—New Ravenna has introduced five natural-stone mosaics to its Studio Line collection. The tiles are handcrafted in the company’s Virginia workshop. Sporting calm, muted palettes. newravenna.com

TIMELESS LOOK—Many homeowners shy away from marble countertops because the stone easily stains and requires regular resealing. Caesarstone provides an alternative with its eight quartz surfaces—that mimic the look of marble but are low-maintenance and scratch-, stain- and mold-resistant. caesarstoneus.com

RIGHT ANGLE—California Faucets’ new Quad Spout upends the typical arc-shaped kitchen sink fixture with an industrial-style, squared-off form. Made of solid brass, it comes in more than 28 artisan finishes and is available with a standard pull-down spout or a squeeze-handle sprayer. californiafaucets.com

DISH DUTY—The GE Profile UltraFresh System Dishwasher is equipped with Microban antimicrobial technology that prevents the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on its high-touch surfaces.
