A Great Gathering Space

As featured in a 2016 Seattle Times article, PentalQuartz countertops bring clean lines and a modern look to this Madison Park home. Architect Mike La Fon from Capsule designed the 900 sq ft main level with a “room for everyone” concept, creating a gathering space for a multi-generational family between the open kitchen, dining and living spaces. Two 4-ft-by-8-ft kitchen islands at the center of the layout provide ample room for family, including all of the grandkids, to prepare meals together. For a clean and subtle white marble counter effect, PentalQuartz in Onixaa tops the black lacquered maple cabinetry. Three thin and streamlined pendant lights hang delicately over each of the islands without obstructing the vast visual space. Mirrored backsplash tile similar to our Lustre tile in Stainless Steel Brushed metal mosaic adds a touch of glamour to the modern design palette.

Previously designed as his “dream kitchen”, La Fon was thrilled to use this unique kitchen layout in a client’s home. With built-in appliances against one wall and plentiful cabinet space on the other, the kitchen’s large footprint is sensible and highly functional. The home’s high ceilings and ample windows allow for plenty of natural light to flood the living spaces while also maintaining the owner’s privacy in a city setting.
