Get a Custom, Chef-inspired Kitchen in Your Home

Many at-home chefs dream about a custom kitchen where they can cook and entertain – blending contemporary style and functional elements. Poggenpohl provides the perfect inspiration with two recent renovations of landmark culinary venues in New York City. In Tribeca, the legendary Cooking by the Book and the iconic De Gustibus Cooking School in Macy’s Herald Square.

These innovative and luxurious spaces showcase how Poggenpohl was able to utilize a variety of materials to create well-designed, sleek kitchens that stand up to the demands of world-class chefs. For Cooking by the Book, this included the use of an easy-to-clean, yet stunning wood laminate cabinet finish and quartz surface materials. Flush doors to offer a smooth and seamless look leveraging Poggenpohl’s German-engineered drawers made for heavy usage, functionality, improved workflow and a lot of hidden storage – all to provide the ultimate culinary excellence.

“Improving upon a space in which the client had successfully run her business for years while trying to feature some of Poggenpohl’s most beneficial and special functions was exciting to say the least,” states Cathy Gabriel of Poggenpohl Downtown (New York). “We were thrilled to be able to deliver the same level of storage space and efficiency that is so important in a cooking venue, even though we were working with a smaller footprint. In addition, Poggenpohl’s finishes are known for their durability, particularly the textured laminates used in this design which will give ease of cleaning and longevity for Cooking by the Book.”

Additionally, Poggenpohl transformed the iconic De Gustibus Cooking School, which includes a fully operational kitchen that mixes a professional work environment with an intimate atmosphere. Poggenpohl’s cabinetry and shelving was used throughout this space, which offered warmth and a contemporary style while providing innovative ways to maximize space.
