After a 30-year occupant moved out, a young couple purchased this apartment, refreshing it with daring and unique finishes from head to toe. The tiny, 49-square-foot kitchen (small even by New York standards) receives its personality from Poggenpohl’s grey nut tree cabinetry and aluminum backsplash complete with Gorilla wallpaper. Functionality was key with custom features to clear the countertops of clutter and create space for clever, smaller-scale appliances.

This kitchen design was part of a complete renovation on the 20th floor of a condominium in St. Louis, Missouri. The entire unit was stripped from floor to ceiling, and reconfigured to fulfill the homeowners’ wishes for an open floor plan. To accommodate their desire for a welcoming kitchen with clean lines, Poggenpohl products were used here and in nearly every room in the home. The result is a modern, seamless aesthetic.
Poggenpohl has been designing and producing luxury kitchens at its factory in Herford, Germany for over 120 years, making it the world's longest-established and most renowned kitchen brand. Customized, high-end kitchens delivered to more than 70 countries are created in a manufacturing and assembly area of 54,000 m2.
