Carnemark built storage and a refrigerated wine room with pullout shelves into unused space under the stairs.

Panels conceal an integrated refrigerator to the left of the range and an exhaust fan above it. A striking fixture featuring a frosted-acrylic LED tube wrapped around a black rod makes a sculptural statement.

A row house kitchen in DC marries vintage architecture with a streamlined sensibility

KONST SieMatic

The owner of a 1900 DC row house wanted a new kitchen that would marry modern style and vintage elegance. Designer Jonas Carnemark made the dream a reality, reimagining the galley-style space with matte SieMatic SLX cabinetry. A central island with a black Silestone countertop houses a sink, dishwasher and trash pullouts. Behind it, a marble-look ceramic-tile backsplash anchors the Wolf range, surrounded by more storage.

The plan also created a refrigerated wine room in unused space under the adjacent stairway. A linear chandelier above the island and illuminated bronze channels that take the place of cabinet hardware impart a touch of glam.

"The LED-illuminated bronze channels, used instead of hardware, are both functional and artistic."
