Black, White & Warm Kitchen
This striking kitchen, from in interior designer Monique Gibson's live-work space in the East Village, is incredibly well balanced. Its predominantly black and white palette is warmed by natural wood tones introduced through custom shelving and furniture. Additional texture, provided by assorted ceramics, casually displayed art, and a simple but dramatic arrangement of branches, rounds out the perfectly layered space.

The dining table is Gal Gaon's Pebble Desk. Contact Hoster Burrows for pricing.
The Pebble Desk took its inspiration from the furniture carved from a single piece of wood by the Senufo tribe of Ivory Coast. Senufo Stools are easily sourced secondhand and provide a similar look for less; $549.
The dining chair is by Hjorth. Borge Mogensen's J39 Chair has a similar Shaker sensibility; $463.
Gibson displays a small scale drawing by Yongjin Han on a simple wooden easel; $10.
While it's missing the swivel function of Gibson's stool, Thonet's Era Backless Barstool has similar vintage charm; $225.
