The principal of the St. Charles design studio, Kate Williams, has been creating customized designs to suit her clients’ needs for over 30 years. She now launches her Signature Elements collection; the line is a wonderful blend of the past working as an inspiration and the future of entertaining in mind. The line is an attempt by her to bridge the kitchen to other rooms of the house by allowing the customer an option to place the piece in any part of their home. The collection has three models builto existing with St. Charles’ cabinetry and a solution to issues Williams has faced in her own professional life – the Aldyn credenza, the Autour, and the Empire cabinet.
The curved-front Aldyn credenza with a deco style profile comes in a body crafted from figured walnut paired with a rich antique stain. Providing a contemporary style are the brushed stainless steel and satin nickel accents. Its shape helps connect the gap between kitchen and dining areas and provides ample storage space very subtly. This piece is priced at $18,000.
The round Autour tackles counter space issues as it serves as it aids as a staging, serving, and storage area combining open shelving, a knife block, and drawers. This one sports a price upon request tag.
The tall Empire inspired by iconic US skyscrapers exhibits a dramatic presence. An epic example of the collection they of past meet future. This cabinet has LEDs to light each shelf, space to place wine bottles and flutes while still providing a classic style to the customer’s home décor as it is made up of espresso-stained walnut with satin nickel hardware. The piece is worth $15,000.
In keeping with the studio’s bespoke service, St. Charles offers the customer a chance to play around with the word, paint colors, and stains to meet their home styles and preferences.
