A home designed by Ellen Lopez of El Design Studio was inspired by a Coastal palette and elegant styling. Ellen collaborated with Grothouse to design a series of wood and metal countertops and accessories for various rooms in the home. Ellen thoughtfully selected every detail to tell the story of the homeowner, the architecture and the homes location on the North Shore and the picturesque view of the Long Island Sound.
The homeowner is a cook, so the kitchen was designed not only designed for show, but most importantly functionality. The kitchen island features a custom stained Curly Figured Maple wood counter. Finished with Grothouse exclusive Durata® finish in matte sheen, this counter is completely waterproof and perfect for seating. A custom edge profile and two expanded corners add drama to the counter’s design.
“The custom-figured maple wood countertop by Grothouse with its rich, dark stain adds to the elegance and provides depth and strength to the space,” stated Ellen.
A custom Argentum Anvil™ metal finished range hood sits beautifully above the island. The nickel silver tones of the Argentum metal finish complement the crystal chandelier above the eat in kitchen table.
The kitchen table was also crafted by Grothouse, composed of an Ash wood tabletop and an Argentum Anvil™ Metal Finished table base – designed to match the range hood.
Built custom for the base shelf of the pantry was a custom stained Ash wood counter. The counter provides space for storage and is sealed with Durata® waterproof and permanent finish in matte sheen.
The Dining Room Buffet Server
The mood of each room changes subtly, while similar elements were woven together to keep the story connected. In doing so, a custom stained Figured Maple counter, matching the kitchen counter, was crafted for the buffet server in the dining room.
