Making a compact kitchen luxurious and beautiful may seem implausible, but it's not at all uncommon for New Yorkers who refuse to think small. As this sparkling penthouse kitchen proves, it's the result of some clever ideas and careful planning.

To create the illusion of space and light, the architects designed the kitchen like a vintage jewelry box and let the idea radiate throughout the room.

Almost everything inside the kitchen is reflective, creating a breathtaking effect. A decorative chandelier provides a sophisticated focal point the room. Light from the chandelier and accent fixtures grazes across double-barrel vaulted ceilings, custom moldings and curved wall cabinets with silver-leaf detailing. A Monogram® stainless-metallic induction cooktop and mirrored backsplash pick up the light and amplify it so that you can see a full spectrum of colors. Light also dances across marble floor tiles, accentuating its polish and texture.

Monogram custom appliances figure prominently into the optical fantasy. A 30" fully integrated refrigerator and wine reserve and two 18" dishwashers blend into the background of the kitchen, integrating perfectly with the overall design scheme.
