Always Timeless

Rich wood tones and metalwork are hallmarks of Old World style and bring yesteryear charm to this brightly chic kitchen. The deep wood island provides a striking contrast against the white cabinetry, and a galvanized metal-and-brass range hood doubles as a holder for classic copper pots. Wrought iron detailing in the glass cabinetry adds a decidedly historic touch to the space.

Rooted in Tradition

This modernized kitchen embraces historically inspired appliances with this steel-and-nickel range made in Burgundy, France. Another true immigrant from the old country finds its way into the backsplash, where a 1700s iron fireback is surrounded by glossy subway tiles.

Instantly Vintage

Whether using antiques or antique replicas, the time-honored lines of the Queen Anne table and balloon-back dining chairs never go out of style. Damask-printed curtains soften the bay window and bring a classic pattern to the dining room.
