This new Arts & Crafts style home has many Greene & Greene inspired details in the kitchen and throughout the house.

Contemporary Kitchen Design

Interestingly, classic 'modern' – AKA 'The International Style' – is now almost a vintage style itself, since the origin of what most of us think of as contemporary or modern was actually first championed by the Bauhaus and cutting edge architects of the first half of the last Century. In the 1920's and 30's visionaries like Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe revolutionized design style by stripping architecture to its barest fundamentals and building from scratch with the materials and technology of the day.

Vintage Modern Interpretation

Our contemporary kitchen designs feature a sleeker look than our traditional work. We also often combine elements of contemporary style into traditional kitchen designs, and vice versa. Contemporary lighting, for example, can often work well as a cross-over element within a traditional design. Likewise, traditional elements can be artistically blended into a contemporary design – in fact, that is one of the hallmarks of the 'Post-Modern' style architecture and modern kitchens. Also, many of the principles of modern design – such as form follows function, truth in materials and the use of cutting-edge technology – can be as at home in traditional designs as they are in contemporary kitchen designs, which further blurs the line between the two.
