Luxe And Dramatic Kitchen

Barbara Barry pendant lights add elegance to a custom kitchen.

Designer Brian Gluckstein chose dark Macassar ebony for the cabinetry, with a clean black "frame" that sets off the rich wood. White counters and backsplash help keep the room light and airy. The 9' x 4' island houses the sink, dishwasher and a wine fridge. Stainless steel appliances and cabinetry break up the expanse of dark wood, keeping the look fresh.
