White, Gray, and Chrome Kitchen with Built-in Banquette
In the kitchen, Ruderman prepared for large family gatherings with a custom banquette built into the back of a curved island teamed with an oval glass-and-walnut table. A decorative painter finished cabinetry in a distressed taupe and cream, and the designer maintained these neutral tones in the adjacent family room, which boasts a stone replace wall.
Calacatta Caldia marble tops the kitchen’s 4-by-14-foot island, which has curved banquette seating built into it. A custom oval table from Daniel Scuderi handles large gatherings; the polished-nickel Compass pendant lights are from <a href="http://www.waterworks.com/"target="_blank">Waterworks</a>.
