• KITCHEN CABINETS: Cesar Maxima 2.2 Modern Kitchen Model
  • CABINET FINISH: White lacquered high gloss wood veneer kitchen finish
  • ARCHITECT:Amy Ceppelin / Twelve Development LLC

This modern Italian kitchen is situated with a water-front spec home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The house, which is built on a slope, features traditional architecture on the outside, but has a very modern interior design with very innovative design elements and an open concept, where the second floor is visible from most parts of the home. Therefore, the home’s modern design was embraced in this contemporary Italian Cesar kitchen design, for which Modiani Kitchens is the exclusive distributor in NJ and certain areas within the tri-state area.

This modern kitchen project in CT was a collaboration between our Modiani Kitchens co-owner and senior kitchen designer Kobi Aharon, and the architect Amy Ceppelin at Twelve Development LLC. This residential project features kitchen cabinetry by the Italian kitchen manufacturer and designer Cesar, and uses their most popular modern kitchen line Maxima 2.2. The kitchen cabinet finishes used are white lacquered high gloss wood veneer for the kitchen’s wall and tall cabinets, and a gray laminate cabinet finish for the base cabinets, which forms a nice contrast. For the kitchen countertops, a Caesarstone quartz top finish was used, and in terms of the kitchen appliances, the high-end appliance brand Thermador was chosen.

This modern custom kitchen project features a large ten-foot modern kitchen island, which has a sink as well as storage integrated into it. The refrigerator is fully integrated, having it nicely covered up by our high-end Italian Cesar kitchen cabinetry. The kitchen features two layers of kitchen cabinets, with one layer being upper cabinet depth and the other being full depth. The cooking area has a straight counter surrounding it, with flip up doors on the kitchen cabinets above the kitchen countertop, which is proportional to the cooking hood. On the opposite side of the cooktop, double ovens are situated amidst pantries with additional kitchen storage. This ultra modern kitchen pairs perfectly with the contemporary home, which is open and has modern cabinet finishes throughout the space. What makes this kitchen unique is the integration with the architectural design, making the cooking process a nice experience, and allowing for a view of the outside swimming pool and river while preparing a meal.
