Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe kitchen is updated without losing its historic charm.
After a week of contemplating three professional design plans, the Longes decide to use David Kaufman and Tom Segal of Kaufman Segal Design. The old industrial-style tile is replaced with beautiful red oak flooring. The butler's pantry is filled with new cabinetry and now features two drink stations and a much-used ice machine. They were even able to add an under-the-counter washer and dryer masked to look like the rest of the cabinets.
