Design/Build Kitchen Cabinetry Alexandria Va: Not everyone is as adventurous and passionate about the possibilities of custom cabinetry as we are… but every once in a while… some kitchens are just too much fun. The client is a professional culinary author, critic, and instructor. Together, we designed and crafted this extraordinary, “fitted” kitchen for her historic, urban home in Alexandria, Virginia. The kitchen combines individually designed cabinets, each with the feel of Classical, Colonial, or Contemporary furniture. Some cabinets are constructed traditionally, of solid North American hardwoods; white oak, walnut, and chestnut. Others are veneered with exotic European species, like “Pippy” Yew. Some feel “built-in,” others appear to be “free-standing.” Goodies include; a custom pasta-drying tree, and a built-in knife rack, cubbies and nooks, and custom racks for her collection of rolling pins. What a joy this room turned out to be!
