Brooklyn architects Made designed the kitchen for this West Village townhouse. It's not shiny, glamorous, or eye-popping, but rather quiet, somber, and respectful of its brick and timber shell...

Some things we like in particular:

  • Age. The appearance of age in the pendant fixtures, dining table, and bar stools make for a very comfortable fit in the surrounding architecture of the home.
  • Color. The only vivid color is in the bar stool upholstery, which is beautiful against the patina of natural materials everywhere else.
  • Unfitted. The fridge is set into the niche beside the fireplace, but it's not built-in. The kitchen is made up of mostly stand-alone pieces that look like they were accumulated over time instead of fitted flawlessly at once. That imperfect quality does a lot to emphasize the space's warmth and character.
