ILVE transforms a 1950’s kitchen into an entertainment destination

In Houston, Texas the heart of a 1950s ranch was transformed into a beautifully designed entertainment destination with the help of a 48” ILVE Majestic range.

after-island2Designer Vi Khanh Hoang, who specializes in custom renovations that are adhered to the client’s lifestyle, renovated the kitchen within the footprint of the original home. She was able to incorporate the existing structure of the kitchen with an open and functional layout for entertaining friends and family.

We added a large island, a coffee/drink area, a prep/sink area, and a cooking area.”

The kitchen was inspired by the classic and clean trend mixed with a warm cottage feel that is popular in interior design today. A 48” Matte Graphite ILVE range with brass trim helped to bring these styles together while still meeting the personal need for a powerful cooking appliance.
