Kitchens $75,000–$150,000 Historic Reflection PAUL BENTHAM Lauren Levant Interior, Pittsburgh, PA While more traditional in design, the new kitchen in this historic home in the Pittsburgh, PA area provides a fresh and updated appeal. Designed by Paul Bentham of Lauren Levant Interior, the kitchen was created as a space for the family to connect at the beginning and end of the day. Distinctly separated from the for- mal dining area by pocket doors, the 310-sq.-ft. kitchen functions as a cooking and conversation hub. The available space for the new kitchen was narrow and limited in size and had the additional challenge of a central and sizable structural post. It was decided that the beam would work best if situated inside of a centralized island, and, as a result, the island became a creative arrangement, including a work side incorporating a white Kohler prep sink, Newport Brass faucet and Wolf microwave and an entertaining side with beverage storage, topped with Dekton Entzo countertops from Cosentino. A dining side with a custom countertop in Rift Cut Oak with Espresso Stain from Quality Custom Countertops is featured opposite the prep space. Below, a bank of QCCI cabinets in the Lavelle door style in white provide significant storage and match the cabinetry oppo- site, which features a full-size white Kohler sink, Newport Brass faucet and Miele dishwasher situated under a bank of windows framed in black moulding. Hardware from Omnia Industries and House of Antique hardware is featured throughout the space. To the left of the sink sits a Pro 48" range, topped with a range hood, in black with brass details, both from Bertazzoni. A full wall of three-dimensional sculptured subway tile from Myorka leads around the turn to a full-height pantry cabinet in QCCI's Lavelle door style in a black painted finish. On the opposite wall, a large refrigerator and freezer from Miele were integrated in a decora- tive armoire to honor the home's historic setting.
