Luxe Kitchens That Deliver Performance and Style
8 ways to achieve an elegant kitchen that’s as hardworking as it is beautiful.
The kitchen. It’s handily the most important room in the house. Guests gravitate towards it at celebrations, family members cook meals together, and it’s the perfect place to go by yourself to enjoy a delicious snack with your favorite libation. So, why not do it in style? A chic, high-performance kitchen may not be for everyone, but in larger homes, it’s almost necessary. High-end, high-performing appliances and a well-appointed, functionally beautiful space will benefit both your inner chef and your inner entertainer, and one of the key ingredients is lighting. Discover how designers use our lights to make kitchens sizzle.
Go For Gold
Like a colorful garnish on a plate, a touch of gold in the kitchen adds a little dazzle. Interior designer Tiffany Skilling Interiors mixes dark, rich tones with subtle gold accents to create an inviting and elegant kitchen. From the structural Charlton Large Triple Arm Chandelier from AERIN perched above the kitchen island to the pair of Selfoss Large Sconce from AERIN flanking the range, lustrous black and brass finishes elevate the overall sophistication to the space.

Take It To New Heights, But Keep It Grounded
Anchoring a high-ceilinged kitchen with dark tones can give the illusion of added height, allowing for a more powerful architectural interior as illustrated in this kitchen designed by The Life Styled Co.. The team grounded this show stopping kitchen with heavy black cabinetry that is simultaneously striking and warm. Celebrating the room’s dimensions are a pair of our Elliot Large Pendants by Suzanne Kasler.

Be Bold with Black and White
Melanie Turner delivers modern French bistro vibes in this classic black-and-white kitchen. A trio of bronze Precision Large Pendants from Kelly Wearstler balance the patterned tile floors, which earn bonus points for their small-scale motif designed to disguise dirt. An abstract painting injects a gentle pop of color.
Give Into Glamour
With an expansive kitchen island, a wealth of cabinet and counter space, and an oversized double-door refrigerator, this is a kitchen that’s meant to be cooked in - often and with joy. Interior designer Irina Grave incorporates exquisite architecture such as coffered ceilings, bold geometric tile floors, and neutral tones throughout to denote a subtle luxury in this space. While the stunningly elegant Adele Four Tier Waterfall Chandelier by Suzanne Kasler adds a touch of glamour.
Let The Hardware Lead
Simplicity done well can outshine even the most elaborate of designs. Keeping the rest of the space quiet with clean lines and custom millwork, Gori & Yoon Architecture allows the show-stopping, professional chef-quality range to anchor this sleek minimalist kitchen. Everything from the kitchen’s color story to the pair of Selfoss Small Sconces by AERIN references the handsome black-and-bronze range.
Make A Statement with Marble
Marble is an easy - if sometimes pricey - way to make an immediate impact in a space. Choose from a wide range of colors and styles. Large-vein marbles add an additional dose of drama and give your kitchen a luxurious, timeless appeal. It isn’t just for countertops, either. The custom, marble-wrapped hood lends the room interest and glamour in this light-filled contemporary kitchen by Artisan Signature Homes. The natural artistry radiating from the organic stone adds layers of texture and an innate sense of luxury to this space complemented by our Precision Large Pendants by Kelly Wearstler. Suspended effortlessly from above the waterfall kitchen island, these pendant lights are equal parts classic and contemporary, completing the bold look.
Keep It Simple and Chic
Lighting is one of the quickest and simplest ways to up the wow factor of a subdued space like this sleek neutral kitchen designed by M House Development. The design team used a trio of Agnes Medium Pendants from AERIN to add a subtle sense of drama for an elevated chic experience. Photographer: Margaret Rajic
