The Lower Merion Project

To tame this 570-square-foot kitchen in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, and give it a sense of flow and grandeur required multiple focal points: a large island with formal seating, a casual seating area with a TV that turns into a painting when not in use, an office nook with a view of the gardens, and a cooking area with an elaborate vent hood and a tiled backsplash featuring a gilt bee and floral motif. Raymond Enkeboll Designs molding and embellishments amplify the ambiance of Old World elegance, while appliances by GE Monogram, Wolf, Asko, and Sub-Zero ensure functionality.
