example, Valcucine’s Invitrium kitchen base units are made out of aluminum and glass—that’s all—and, they’re shipped flat from Italy, which means no wasted space, no wasted energy. How’s that for innovation?

manufactured with less raw materials, no or less toxic adhesives, and low VOC finishes, there will be drastically reduced or zero toxic emissions. The Invitrium kitchen, for example, uses aluminum and glass assembled with mechanical joints instead of adhesives which eliminates toxic emissions.

YOUR KITCHEN WILL BE 100 PERCENT RECYCLABLE.

End-of-life and disposability of a product is an issue, but not with a

truly sustainable kitchen which is 100 percent recyclable. Not only should the materials be recyclable, the product should be easy to disassemble once it’s finished its life cycle. Valcucine’s door frames, for example, are assembled with pressed aluminum rivets—there are no steel screws to be removed.

CHERYL HAZAN MOSAIC THE ART OF MOSAIC I S AT I T S M O S T E L E G A N T AT C H E R Y L H A Z A N MOSAIC’S STUDIO.

Since Cheryl Hazan began creating mosaics in 1985, she has crafted the finest seamless and award- winning glass mosaics for the highest profile celebrities, architects, and designers in the metropolitan area and beyond. The press has called her an architect’s best-kept secret, and it’s obvious why. A Cheryl Hazan Mosaic is a one-of-akind work that is created uniquely for each environment. “We interpret into mosaic the idea of what a client wants to feel when walking into their home,” says Cheryl, who along with a team of 10 artists and artisans composes works of art, from traditional to modern looks, for interior and exterior surfaces. Cheryl Hazan Mosaic’s breadth of designs range from a recently installed mosaic floor designed by Cheryl and head designer Cecile Arnaud for actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s master bathroom, to mirrors commissioned by Polygram records as holiday gifts for its esteemed roster of rock-androll legends. New for 2010 is a limited edition line of tables. Cheryl Hazan is also pursuing a venture into mosaics with recycled products. Cheryl Hazan Mosaic, an extension of Cheryl Hazan Gallery, is located in Tribeca. All mosaic pieces are handmade in New York in a green, toxic-free environment.

WE INTERPRET INTO MOSAIC

GREEN ART HOME F U L LY 7 5 % O F E V E R Y T H I N G T H A T HAPPENS IN THE KITCHEN IS CENTERED AROUND THE SINK.

With so much activity in one area, it’s vital to find a system that synchronizes your work processes and brings new harmony to your kitchen. Fortunately, innovative new systems today let you create a three-dimensional work space, with essential items remaining accessible but out of your way until needed. And they’re as stylish as they are versatile. Pioneered by Franke, the world’s largest manufacturer of kitchen sinks, the fully integrated or “active kitchen” brings everything together from sink to vent hood to rail system, making a full range of food preparation and clean-up tasks more efficient. With Franke’s kitchen systems—available online and instore from Green Art Home in Freeport, Long Island—you simply select the design that suits your work pattern and decor. Then you outfit your system with your choice of faucets, water dispensers and waste disposers. And finally, you add custom-fitted accessories for the perfect union of form and function. At its best, the sink and accessories at the heart of an active kitchen can serve as anything from a “third hand” to an in-house sous-chef. It’s that practical. While lock-in accessories like utility bowls and fitted grids raise your work level, rail systems create a second functioning level with their handle-mounting components, allowing you to get more done without exhausting counter space or yourself. For more on the benefits of an active kitchen, consult with the experts at the Green Art showroom.

PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK THEY NEED A BIGGER KITCHEN,

BUT OFTEN WHAT THEY NEED IS A SMARTER KITCHEN. FRANKE’S INTEGRATED SYSTEMS ARE PERSONALIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND SPACE. THAT MAXIMIZES YOUR WORK AREA, CUTS OUT STEPS AND SAVES YOU TIME. AS A RESULT, YOU ENJOY YOUR KITCHEN MORE. – Alex Okin, Vice President, Green Art

GARTH CUSTOM KITCHENS GARTH CUSTOM KITCHENS PRIDES ITSELF IN GOING THE E X T R A D I S TA N C E I N E N S U R I N G C U S T O M E R S AT I S F A C T I O N , FROM THE FIRST VISIT TO THE HOME UNTIL THE COMPLETION O F T H E P R O J E C T.

“We offer full design and contracting services with our design and installation work, but if our client decides to use their own contractor, we will coordinate installation of its products with the clients’ builder or contractor,” says Samuel Owen, owner of Garth Custom Kitchens. “We insist on making it a mission to dovetail our services with other professionals working on a project so the design and installation is executed correctly.” Over the years, Samuel and his staff have developed a clear project management approach which includes a commitment to consistent on-site visits and the creation of a detailed template that offers a three-dimensional view of the end result. “We’re able to pinpoint and solve any challenging checkpoints that may occur throughout the project,” says Samuel. Garth Custom Kitchens carries a full line of Wood-Mode Cabinetry, as well as its private label cabinetry, and it has the capability of creating any custom color and any design requirements. The design firm also specializes in designing libraries, wine rooms, video entertainments units, and custom furniture for every room in the house—not just kitchens.

WE INSIST ON MAKING IT A MISSION

TO DOVETAIL OUR SERVICES WITH OTHER PROFESSIONALS WORKING ON A PROJECT SO THAT THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION IS EXECUTED CORRECTLY.

KOLSON INC. SOLID SERVICE, PLUS AN EYE FOR THE BEST SELECTION OF KITCHEN A N D B AT H H A R D WA R E , I S KOLSON’S STRENGTH.

Though Kolson continues to add new lines, it takes quite a lot for a new product to make an impression on Dale Landy, owner of the decorative hardware and plumbing showroom. “We just added California Faucets and we chose it because it adds another dimension to what we offer our customers now,” says Dale. “It has excellent quality at a reasonable price, and it has many, many different styles to choose from.” California Faucets allows homeowners to mix and match any handle with any spout in any finish without long lead times for delivery. From Art Deco to fresh and sleek, homeowners can create a one-of-a-kind centerpiece faucet for a bathroom. In addition, Kolson adds Jaclo grab bars, faucetry, and angle stops as stylized finishing touches for bathrooms. Kolson chose to add Jaclo to its fine selection because of the company’s ability to supply product quickly and in many finishes.

NEXT YEAR, KOLSON WILL BE 50 YEARS OLD.

WE ARE STRONG BECAUSE OF OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE, OUR KNOWLEDGE, OUR SELECTION, AND OUR BUSINESS SAVVY. –Dale Landy, Kolson Inc.

Industry leaders seek out Bisulk Kitchens because they know the difference between ordinary custom cabinetry and Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry. Brad Berkoff, Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD), president of Bisulk, and Rutt’s award-winning “Salesperson of the Year” for 2008, 2007, and 2005, explains why Rutt is a true custom product. “Rutt builds its entire product from scratch in its factory,” he says. “This way, Rutt has complete quality control by handselecting lumber for each panel from the finest lumber available.” Rutt offers eight standard wood species including Walnut, Rift Cut White Oak, South American Mahogany, and Black Cherry. There are no premium charges based on wood species selection. Many homeowners are introduced to Bisulk by referral from their families, friends, neighbors, and business acquaintances, and Brad invites all clients—from architects and designers to developers and builders—into Bisulk’s showroom to experience first-hand the exquisite and fine detailing of Rutt HandCrafted Cabinetry’s products.
