Black, White & Warm Kitchen
The striking kitchen in Monique Gibson's live-work space proves that high contrast interiors needn't be cold. Natural wood tones in custom shelving and furniture warm up the stark black and white palette, and the 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.
Magnolia Ceramics Angelo Vase in Pitch. Available through Lawson Fenning; $650.
