In this distinct kitchen design by Susan Serra, the brushed metal table and glass countertops are counterbalanced by the warmth of wood cabinets, hardwood floors and distinct color accents. The gorgeous hand-blown cobalt blue pendants, with natural imperfections, are scene stealers and add artisan appeal to a contemporary setting. "Natural materials in lighting fixtures such as reclaimed wood and distressed metals also add that authentic element we crave," says Serra. "Imperfections are desired and coveted...in context, of course!"
