Mackintosh Reincarnated

Mellow, toned quarter-sawn oak cabinetry intermixed with black hickory cabinets help achieve this outcome. Authentic Motawi tiles in rustic colors of the period complement a fully functional kitchen, featuring a 36” electric cooktop, stainless steel hood, a fully integrated refrigerator, and microwave drawer in the island.

A wraparound, built-in banquette comfortably seats a crowd. On the opposite side of the room, a secondary kitchen/wet bar area provides additional workspace, along with wine storage and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry for fine china and crystal.

All in all, this kitchen, with its sleek styling combined with classic Arts-and-Crafts touches is a fitting modern homage to the spirit of Mackintosh.
