Kitchens for every type of reader

This kitchen gives the cozy rustic look an update, with Thomas Moser's Modern take on Windsor chairs and the acid color of the aniline-dyed cabinets.

The free mix of materials and open shelving gives this kitchen a collected look that transforms easily, thanks to high-backed Italian leather chairs and the white glossy surfaces, to a decorous space for dinner.

Lightly stained cherry wood sets matches the natural backdrop of this kitchen situated perfectly to serve both snacking passersby and guests busy at the pool beyond the plate glass.
