This is a kitchen I designed back when I worked at my first design job with Diamond Barrata. I remember the custom enamel island took FOREVER to design (as it actually hiding every utility pipe in the apartment). The countertops were a product called "Fireclay" which is kiln fired and glazed in France and air shipped to NYC. Of course it arrived cracked, setting the project back six months. Bill Diamond kept insisting we put a citrus pattern on the floor. I had NO idea what he was talking about (Citrus on the floor?? WTF??), but we ended up with this design.
The evolution of a designer is a slow and steady process. Starting my own business this year has allowed me to reflect on these past experiences with a sense of joy. Who would of known, ten years later, a project that almost killed me at the time would be remembered so fondly. Looking forward to sharing more posts, and thanks for tuning in.
