Sexy. Sophisticated. And oh-so soignée. Despite the pain of being my own client, I moved my kitchen from the great room to the den. It is emerging in deliciously layered minimalism – a sleek confection of lizard-embossed leather on one wall (custom dyed in Italy) balanced by the sleek, satiny metallic painted finish on another. It’s cool, wild and – of course – one-of-a-kind.

The gracious, classic atmosphere we established throughout an 8,000 sq., ft. luxury home in Bucktown is apparent in its welcoming kitchen which is open to the family room, breakfast room, and walled private gardens.

The polished simplicity of a graphic black and white palette is as dynamic in the kitchen as the rest of the Trump Tower Chicago home. The elegant Modernist vibe establishes a complimentary background for both the homeowners’ collection of art and their carefully-defined urban lifestyle.

Touches of stainless steel and brass offset antique and vintage furnishings in a spacious kitchen on Chicago’s landmark Prairie Avenue.

While standard Trump Tower Chicago kitchen designs open onto a den or dining room, we designed an African mahogany three quarter height wall to satisfy the needs of owners who employ the services of a personal chef. While the arrangement created needed privacy, it also preserved natural light while adding the efficient bonus of 10 additional storage drawers.
