C'est Chic

The work of Parisian designer Jean-Louis Deniot, this kitchen is quite the alluring space, n'est-ce pas? Sharing the same neutral-hued wood lets the cabinets, walls, and even part of the ceiling quiet the room. Positioning the banquette so diners face away from the work zones is trés civilized; it underscores the not-so-subtle difference between an eat-in and a see-in kitchen. Set at staggered heights, the pendant lights remind me of nothing so much as Champagne bubbles. deniot.com
