This is an on-trend Kitchen designed by Vasi Ypsilantis. She used these oversized light fixtures with black fabric shades from Tech Lighting to add some wow: “They’re about 2 feet in diameter and are slightly larger than you would expect for the space,” she says. The idea was to create some drama in the room with a typical low ceiling. “The luxurious cabinets are Poggenpohl’s Marsh Oak Veneer with a rich near-black stain.” Definitely a stunning contemporary kitchen.

Created by Poggenpohl team Tedd McKee and Rosemary Porto in colaboration with architecture firm CUBE 3 Studio. An amazing project where the room was laid out to maximize prep space for cooking, but at the same time, in a visually way,  the sense of immense space was heightened by using three different types of engineered stone for the backsplash, the countertop and the island topper. Everyone who have mood for a different color, will love the dash of bright orange in the light fixtures.

According to Zillow, here is one of the hottest kitchen trends for 2014. Black countertops add a modern edge and sophistication to your kitchen. If you are looking an elegant yet powerful look, go for leather-finished or honed black granite countertops. You can play with some contrasts, maybe with white, or the new white, which means gray cabinets.
