Conflict Over A Cooking Stove
Re-posted from Fri, 12 Dec 2008
Here’s a short story that has a happy ending. Our couple couldn’t agree on a fairly significant feature of their kitchen. The husband wanted a teppanyaki cooking surface, but the wife was against the amount of space this would require along with the messiness that comes with this style of cooking—especially since the cooking would take place at an island with seating.
We negotiated a solution that made both parties happy– a 36” high performance cooking instrument by Wolfe with features that met both their needs and desires.
An Heirloom Discovery
Our client’s in-depth search throughout the metro area failed to produce an antique chest with just the right look and dimensions for their powder room.
However, upon closer inspection of the items our couple already possessed, Liz discovered a perfect piece with original hardware right in the basement of the home. It was the client’s great grandmother’s commode brought over from Ireland. We embellished, added feet for desired height, and ultimately created a charming base for Calcutta gold vein marble.

A bit off topic but yet it is furniture related. I have to say the cabinet designs by Liz in both our bath and kitchen make them feel like furniture. By putting feet in key points along the cabinets, they feel like a built-in chest or buffet. Thank you.
A Touch of the English for Authenticity
An 1850s beam was used for the mantel in this family room, giving it an authentic English cottage feel.
