Quiet Elegance in a North Carolina Kitchen
Dark framing and a zinc-beat counter may influence you to think you've unearthed a library — yet believe us, it's a kitchen! What's more, engineer Ken Pursley assembled it.
The zinc-topped table, made in France, is an invigorating change from all the wood. Seats from Storehouse. Couch designed by Craig Dixon of Pursley Architecture. Stool by Teena Ironworks. Carpet from Brocade Home. Antique walnut framing from Antique Building Products: 800-653-7463. Calcutta Gold marble, Lagos Azul limestone, and Pennsylvania bluestone from the Marble and Stone Shop: 704-376-2254. Kitchen fixture with lever handles by Rohl: 800-777-9762. Zinc-top French table from Circa Interiors and Antiques: 704-332-1668.
In the wash room, an under-mounted stainless-steel sink by Franke is set into a Lagos Azul limestone ledge. The divider mounted spigot, with a different sprayer, makes for simple cleanup.
