Grant Gibson's Casual Cosmopolitan Kitchen

Recently named one of 5 Up and Coming Designers to Watch on Elle Decor's 2011 A-List, San Francisco based interior designer Grant Gibson is quickly making a name for himself, thanks to a design style that is both elegant and cleverly casual. This past month, Gibson had the chance to show off his signature unbuttoned sophistication in a kitchen design as part of Elle Decor's New York Showhouse...

When taking a look at Grant Gibson's use of furniture and accessories, a great takeaway from this Manhattan kitchen, especially for renters with newer, cookie-cutter style apartments, is the use of casual pieces (such as the vintage chairs and 1970's French marble table) to offset the modern cabinets and fixtures. This juxtaposition, along with the addition of a simple, industrial chandelier from Workstead and Moroccan rug from The Rug Company, all help in creating a relaxed, urbane kitchen perfect for scrolling through your RSS over a morning cup of Joe.
