Designed by Gert Wingardh, this Swedish kitchen’s custom countertops and shelving are birch, the oven and cooktop are by Gaggenau, and the antique stove in the foreground is original to the house.
STEEL AND SHELVES
The kitchen of a Manhattan townhouse designed by Temple St. Clair Carr features Carrara-marble counters and a custom-made stainless-steel hood and storage unit; the stove is by Wolf.
OPEN IT UP WITH WHITE
Bertoia side chairs surround a Saarinen table in the kitchen; the Akari light sculpture is by Isamu Noguchi, the candlesticks are by Ted Muehling, the cabinetry is custom-made, and the Tara sink fittings are by Dornbracht.
BLACK AND WHITE CHECKERBOARD
Jeweler Alexis Bittar’s Brooklyn Heights kitchen gives off retro vibes thanks to its checkerboard tilework.
Model Anne Bannert made the mahogany top for this kitchen’s 1950 wood-fired barbecue grill. The copper hood is from the same decade, and the steel chair was found at the local dump.
