  As a manufacturer we don’t always get to see our products installed and it is rewarding when we have the opportunity see them in real life locations, being utilized in creative and inspiring ways.

Designer, Warner McConaughey, HammerSmith, Inc. shared photographs with us of the kitchen and master bath in the Druid Hills renovation in Atlanta. Here he talks about why Urban products work so well in this project.

“The inspiration for the renovation of this historic 1920s home comes from various turn-of-the-century homes with their timeless industrial kitchens and honest craftsmanship, celebrating the function of the craft. There is no unnecessary clutter, and nothing is ornate. Two oversized Cargo Pendant lights serve as the centerpiece of the kitchen, melding a modern-day contemporary style with contrasting industrial charm. The kitchen’s visual success is in its striking use of contrasting materials, colors and textures.

For the master retreat, we wanted a light, airy look, and yet we appreciated the heavier age-old European use of tile, stone, plaster and metal. The space highlights and interfaces opposing materials and trades without the use of molding, trim, or even baseboard. Nothing is applied, nothing is added. Everything seen is intentional, is built in and has a function. The Lenox Medicine Cabinets celebrate this industrial transparency with their exposed piano hinge and all-thread glass shelf supports. The function is the ornamentation, and there is nothing more than exactly what is needed.”
