Dramatically Simple Kitchen Design

In this open-concept kitchen, a rustic maple table is paired with Gio Ponti's Superleggera chairs and a mod pendant light.

Cabinets in Benjamin Moore's Brittania Blue (1623) strike a modern, Scandinavian note. To get this crisp look for less, paint big-box store beadboard cabinets a strong hue for impact and forego upper cabinets in favour of open shelves housing pretty dishes.
