Simply Paris
The Paris kitchen of architect  Joseph Dirand.
Blu Dot stools line up against calacatta gold extra countertops. The custom cabinetry was outfitted by Semihandmade with Ikea cabinet bodies.
This living/dining space is the social center of the apartment. For that reason, the architect designed the cabinet walls as a unifying visual feature that anchors the two rooms and provides practical storage space.
“The walnut unit between the kitchen and dining room ties into the fumed oak floor,” Dubbeldam says. “The rest of the materials in the house—glass, marble, stone—were selected to offset the wood.”
Kitchen from Great Room
The kitchen is beautifully textured and veined thanks to white Carrara marble countertops installed by New Marble Company and reclaimed cypress cabinets built by Wayne Berger.

“The kitchen, dining area, and family room were originally three separate rooms,” says Wilding.  “We opened the space by knocking down walls and installing two large flush beams in the ceiling.” The original kitchen was located in what is now the family room.

The home’s kitchen features stainless steel counters and appliances, and a Carrara backsplash that offers visual cohesion with the main level's floors. Warm Pink Trumpet wood cabinets include mirrored fronts that reflect light and make the open space feel even larger. The dining area includes a custom reclaimed wood table, HAY About a Stool 32 seats, and glossy Komplot Design Calabash pendant lamps.
The careful coordination of color continues in the kitchen, where the gray and white marble backsplash, lit with faint orange lights, mediates between the ashen column and ochre cabinets.
Another custom oak unit houses the oven, range, refrigerator, and pantry.
