Designers Amanda Jesse and Whitney Parris-Lamb combined their love of history and Bauhaus influences to create a stunning kitchen in a Brooklyn Heights home from the 1820s. “The handmade terra-cotta tile, apron-front farmhouse sink and recessed marine style cabinet hardware all nod to more traditional periods and styles but still balance quite nicely with the more contemporary slab front cabinet doors and sleek modern appliances” notes Amanda Jesse.

AJ Madison, an online destination with over 140 appliance brands, was the perfect place for Jesse Parris-Lamb to pick from a wide array of appliances for their modern meets traditional kitchen. They chose a sleek black refrigerator and range made by Dacor with all the bells and whistles needed in a family kitchen.

“That moment where we see traditional and handmade natural materials come together with modern machine-made elements is the intersection we were designing for—and is something we’re always looking to achieve in our work.”  Amanda Jesse of Jesse Parris-Lamb
