Project Brief: Black Oak – Kitchen & Butler’s Pantry

Project Brief: Black Oak – Kitchen & Butler’s Pantry

Nestled at the heart of the home, the Black Oak kitchen, designed by Kelsey Leigh Design Co., exudes warmth and vibrancy through an abundance of natural light, rich color, and organic textures. Our inaugural collection of rustic modern furniture beautifully complemented the European luxury style home alongside our rustic modern kitchen accessories.

European Inspired Kitchen Furniture

Linen Counter Stool

The Calcutta Viola marble countertops and red range were the stars of the space, so we wanted to accentuate those vibrant elements with neutral furniture that still played into the elevated European feel of the space. The Remy Counter Stool gives a hand-crafted look with its studded linen upholstery and bent oak frame, while still offering an understated elegance.

Design Tip

For a blank wall in the kitchen, add a china cabinet instead of more built-in cabinetry. A furniture piece not only adds additional storage for dishes and kitchen wares but also gives a collected feel to the space.

Black China Cabinet

We aimed to add a touch of timeless charm to the Black Oak kitchen layout, seamlessly blending aesthetics and practicality alongside the built-in cabinetry. Enter our Emery Black Hutch—a masterpiece featuring clean lines, elegant brass knobs, and a practical layout of fifteen cubbies. It effortlessly stands out against the neutral built-ins, becoming the focal point of the space. The black finish creates a striking contrast, making it an ideal showcase for your favorite china, glassware, or any decorative treasures.


Vintage Pendant Lighting

The Lindale Pendant features a caged design and sleek lines making it the perfect statement light fixture. We chose a distressed bronze finish that adds a touch of vintage while its textured glass casts a warm and inviting glow through the cozy kitchen.


Must Have Pantry Decor & Storage

Filling this beautiful red butler’s pantry was a breeze, thanks to its trending modern cottage design. Our neutral, rustic kitchen accessories were a match made in decor heaven. Baskets, cutting boards, pitchers, and brushes accented the space, letting the unlacquered brass plumbing, checkered floor, and sink skirt truly shine.
