Symmetry and pattern turn this monochromatic kitchen into a design masterpiece. A Carrara marble-top island the centerpiece and focal point, offers expansive work space. In an unusual choice, the homeowners chose to use a geometric pattern, upholstered bench for seating. The primary work-storage wall relies on traditional cabinetry forms in a rich gray color, with an oversize hood as the organizing point. A subtle pattern on the backsplash tile completes the cool elegant room.
