THE DINING ROOM
A table for twelve has never felt more comfortable. Beautifully proportioned, the eye is drawn to the full length French windows and chevron-pattern oak flooring. Uncommonly spacious, the room has double-wide openings into the Eat-in Kitchen and Living Room. For more formal occasions, handcrafted pocket doors can be closed to create a traditional setting.
Design meets function with Peter Pennoyer collaborating with Smallbone of Devizes. Distinct work areas accommodate the serious cook, and with seating options at either the kitchen island or kitchen table, there’s room for everyone to cook or mingle. Versatility meets bespoke design, from the coffered paneled ceiling with ambient lighting to the seamless integration between the appliances and the cabinets.
Pleasure is in the details. The painted exterior finish reveals walnut interiors. Hardware includes Sugatsune pulls and Lefroy Brooks faucets. White quartz countertops are paired with Calacatta Caldia marble backsplashes. Open the drawers and discover the quality, craftsmanship, and surprises. The Smallbone kitchen cabinetry for 151 East 78th Street is designed in close collaboration with Peter Pennoyer Architects. Smallbone of Devizes hand-builds the kitchens in its Devizes, Wiltshire, UK workshop and will be hand painted on site by Smallbone decorative artists using “Fine Paints of Europe” in a color and sheen selected by Peter Pennoyer. Hand-painted doors, drawer fronts, frames and appliance decor panels are additional details. Black walnut interiors including dovetail-jointed drawer boxes are lacquered for ease of maintenance.
