Adirondack Style Home Takes Design Cues from Nature

Today we’d like to share a recent Crown Point installation that quite literally “brings the outdoors in.” Full-sized tree trunks, a vertical twig soffit detail and an overall asymmetrical design aesthetic contribute to its natural beauty.

Cabinetry from our Arts & Crafts Designer series is handcrafted in beautiful one-inch-thick Sapele and finished in a Nutmeg stain, contrasting nicely against the warm hickory floors.

You may recognize the glazed Lexington Green island from a blog entry from last summer.  Now fitted with a Blue Australe Granite top and situated as the center piece of this grand kitchen, it looks quite at home!

Signature details from our Arts & Crafts Designer Series include bracketed crown molding, our Craftsman door and tapered legs with faux tenons.

The range wall showcases a tile mural from Motawi Tileworks, fittingly portraying a wooded landscape.

Part peninsula, part room divider, this beautifully crafted hutch cabinet is stunning.  Upper cabinets rest on the counter, with retractable doors at the center keeping counter top appliances out of sight, but easily accessible.

Tall hutch end panels feature Arts & Crafts inspired decorative cut-out detailing with wispy brown maple glass panels showing through.

An impressive wet bar is conveniently located between the kitchen and an outdoor entertaining space.  A small sink, wine fridge and two deep refrigerator drawers create the perfect beverage prep area.

Handcrafted from Reclaimed Chestnut with a natural finish, this piece features our Ellsworth door (U.S. Design Patent #US D668,082 S) with its solid wood panel and wood muntin.   Two leaded glass doors accentuate the center cabinet, which is also bumped out for visual interest.  The crown moulding and applied toekick are the finishing touches on this impressive piece.

In keeping with the Craftsman look of the kitchen, this Douglas Fir vanity in the powder room boasts the same tapered legs, faux tenons and our Craftsman door, complete with square pegs.

 

 

In The Media: Spring/Summer Round-up!

Monday, June 4th, 2012

If you’ve flipped through the recent issues of American Bungalow Magazine, The US Builders Review and Arts & Crafts Homes, you probably saw a Crown Point kitchen!  Here’s a quick round-up of some editorial features we were fortunate enough to be a part of this Spring.

We were thrilled to have our cabinetry featured in the February/May issue of American Bungalow!  The hutch pictured below was one of five kitchen shots featured in a piece entitled “Bungalow Kitchens: Spaces that Work.”

This Crafstman hutch was featured in the Feb/May issue of American Bungalow!

The Summer Edition of the US Builders Review features an interview with Crown Point President Brian Stowell.  He recounts the company history from our humble beginnings in the garage, right up to today-34 years later!

The 5-page feature can be viewed online as part of the full digital edition here starting on page 21 (you’ll see the bright, cheery kitchen below on page 26).  We’d like to extend a big thank you to Cliffside Industries, The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, Reynolds and Son, Inc and Atlantic Plywood for your support alongside the feature!

This colorful kitchen was one of several Crown Point photos in the Summer Edition of the US Builders Review!

And, last but certainly not least, the April issue of Arts & Crafts Homes featured two of our Craftsman style kitchens.  The detail shot below from our Prairie Line is one that was featured in a story called “Cabinets Period & Revival.”

This detail shot of our Prairie line was featured in the April issue of Arts & Crafts Homes Magazine!

 

Introducing the Prairie Line!

Monday, October 24th, 2011
Prairie Main Shot

Fantastic install of the new Prairie Line from Crown Point Cabinetry.

In homage to master architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie movement, Crown Point Cabinetry is proud to introduce our new Prairie Line!   Our approach to Prairie styling is historically correct yet decidedly unique with innovative design elements that bring custom cabinetry to a whole new level.

This kitchen is the perfect complement to a newly constructed Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home in Central New York.

Range Shot

Strong lines, cantilevered projections and terraced surfaces. All details inspired by the exterior of this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home.

Our design staff worked directly with the homeowner and architect to utilize many of the signature design elements found in the home.  Horizontal and vertical lines, dramatic brackets and posts are repeated throughout the kitchen.

Island detail

An example of borrowing design details from the architecture of the home can be found in the island brackets.  They were designed to perfectly mimic the cantilevered second floor terrace.

Square Channel Detail Shot

Crown Point's design patented square channel face frames.

Our patented channel face frame is a foundational element that adds a level of lineal detail and visual interest to the entire kitchen.  To achieve this look, we apply inlays made of the same wood species (in this case, Sapele) which intersect to create a distinct square detail.

Bar Shot

This stunning project features the Highland Park and Ellsworth Door styles.

An adjoining bar area features upper cabinetry with our Highland Park door and clear leaded glass.  Lower cabinetry features the Ellsworth door (design patent pending) with its solid wood panel and wood muntins.  Doors within this line are customizable as homeowners can choose from multiple specialty glass options.

Linea System

The Linea shelving system offers a customizable way to keep your necessities at easy reach.

Another show stopping detail is our Linea Shelving System.  A customizable panel can be installed as a partial or full backsplash, or as is shown here at the end of the island.  Homeowners can choose from a number of useful elements such as clear acrylic, aluminum or wooden shelves, as well as various hooks.  Wall shelf boxes, as shown above in matching Sapele, allow you to conveniently transport your essentials from shelf to counter and back again.

More photos of this stunning Prairie Style kitchen may be found in our Gallery, album number 70!

 

Cherry Craftsman Kitchen In American Bungalow!

Monday, April 6th, 2009

americanbungalowspring09

American Bungalow Magazine recently highlighted a Cherry Craftsman style Crown Point kitchen in their “New and Noteworthy” section!

Located on the water in East Otis, MA, the featured kitchen is a bright, open Craftsman design with authentic details from our Arts & Crafts Designer Series.

What makes this kitchen noteworthy, is that the cabinetry is crafted from Cherry, rather than your usual Quartersawn Oak used in most Craftsman designs.  Here, the warmth of cherry creates a wonderfully warm and inviting place to cook, gather, and simply relax!

The Spring issue is on the newsstands until May, so be sure to check us out on page 45!

Custom cabinetsCustom Builder magazine has posted their article, “Connecticut Custom Home Pays Homage To An Icon Of The Arts And Crafts Movement.” Featuring a beautifully designed kitchen in Sapele Mahogany, and based on our Arts and Crafts Designer Series, this custom cabinetry was designed to reflect the distinctive Prairie style. Our in-house designer, Jim Balcom, spent many, many hours working with the client to ensure that every detail was given due attention in creating this stunning look.

The kitchen was part of a whole-house project, inspired by the Gamble House in Pasadena, California.

To ensure a place for everything, Lois incorporated several storage solutions. For example, extra deep drawers and roll out can storage in the banquette were essential in keeping the family organized.
