The show-stopping kitchen featured AVANI’s Echo door with integrated pull in an White Ultra Matte finish with luxurious walnut interiors, dovetail drawers and roll-outs. A unique island was wrapped with salvaged hemlock in a natural finish with carved integrated foot rest and a 3” thick, ultra matte Corian Cameo white counter-top with integrated sink and cutting board. Providing movement and unity to the design is the Cloud, a suspended undulating hand-crafted wood sculpture designed by Siamak and custom made by local designers and makers Lubo Brezina, Coraline Allard and Pierre Quesnel.
