What I like about this kitchen design is that it reaffirms the adage that simple can actually be better. Just because a kitchen design is minimal and simple does not mean that it cannot be classy and cool. I think this is a very modern design, and let me explain why. The island, counters and cupboards are a sharp brown and black and the angle are also very sharp. So what you end up with is a very symmetrical construction. The lights above the island are what make this space classy. They are very cool and innovative, and it just goes to show that you can have one design element elevate your entire design.
