New York Kitchen


This fresh redesign for a kitchen in a pre-war apartment building flawlessly marries classic lines and historic accents with state-of-the art appliances and streamlined NANZ hardware. Reminiscent of butler’s pantry sinks popular in the early 20th century, the stunning German silver sink has an elegant S-curve. Olive-shaped hinges echo the apartment doors’ original hardware. The multi-purpose walnut, marine-finished island top with a small sink adds a note of practicality and warmth to the space. To create more of an intimate, dining room setting for this Manhattan Aerie, designer Nancy Boszhardt selected a handsome antique armoire to house linens and china, and a stylish chandelier, which she suspended above the island.

“Our kitchen is warm; it's who we are. And it has everything. Honestly, I could get rid of the rest of the house and just live in the kitchen.”
