Not only is this kitchen prefect for the gourmet cook and his or her foodie friends, but it is also a classically designed kitchen space. I love the chairs, and while they could have crossed the line into gaudy and tacky, they are just on this side of elegant, so they work well for the kitchen. There are a lot of interesting curves in the architecture, which further accentuates the classic nature of the kitchen. At the same time, though, there is a strong sense of modern and contemporary in the island design and the counter top design. There is a lot to this kitchen.
