Spotted on JJ Locations, we were pretty impressed with the kitchen in this Northwest London home. The pairing of dark wood cabinets and a stainless steel work table is offset by a pair of vintage cabinets as well as the Smeg 50's-inspired refrigerator. Granite and cork countertops make for another successful juxtaposition of style. Not your typical trophy kitchen, but a testament to the value of keeping a little of the vintage around. To see the full house tour, visit JJ Locations.

Thanks to a recent New York Times article, we've been reminded of the legacy of George Nakashima. From a furniture-maker's perspective, there is not much left to say about the legendary Japanese-Pennsylvanian. But I find myself continually finding in his work a simplicity of purpose; A slab supported by turned legs; A joint so reductive and seamless that it almost goes unnoticed. For his ability to derive so much from the wood itself, allowing in many ways for his own craft to become visually secondary, makes him an enduring source of inspiration. Read the NYT article here and be sure to visit the Nakashima website.

Predictably, we like the kitchen. While only demanding what looks to be about 15% of the total square footage, the Chief's stainless galley sports a two-burner glass cooktop, microwave, mini-fridge, and sink with a sprayer that reaches outside for the less-fussy dishwashers. And the adjacent convertible dining-booth-turned-sofa-turned-bunk, makes for a cozy meal with your travel buddies. More more, visit Bowlus Road Chief. Spotted first on the New York Times.
