As an art lover, I enjoy featuring my clients’ artworks where they can be appreciated from various vantage points, and sometimes in unorthodox ways.
When Karen and Doug downsized from a large family home to an elegant condo, they brought their extensive collection of Inuit sculpture. I had designed a sleek, open-concept kitchen with a striking statuario marble backsplash.
The sink area faced directly to the living room and struck me as having potential as a gallery display space. So rather than specify the usual cabinetry, I installed a glass shelf and lighting to feature a specially-prized piece.
Kitchen as art gallery – why not?
