Artisan Custom Stainless Steel Hood - Chicago Kitchen Design
A custom designed hood should bring the same punch to a spectacular kitchen that a diamond necklace does to a classic little black dress. It can be the “wow” factor – taking an element that is completely necessary and turning it into something that stands alone in its design. This particular hood, found in a North Shore Chicago kitchen that was featured in Metropolitan Home Magazine, is an example of the very best kind of design twist. Past Basket took inspiration from traditional millwork profiles while fabricating the piece in a very contemporary material – stainless steel. The subsequent marriage of old and new resulted in a stunning focal point that not only delighted our clients but drew the attention of interior design editors to our achievement, as well. The attention to detail required with stainless steel is legendary – it shows every imperfection. Didn’t faze us at all because, as it happens, everything we do at Past Basket Design gets that kind of attention. (Just read our blog on camouflaging electrical outlets). It takes a lot more than a little stainless steel to intimidate us. Looking for a dream custom kitchen with a timeless style?
