The inspiration: Vintage dressers and woodwork
The project: After gutting her kitchen and opening it to the dining room, designer Jane Schwartz wanted cabinets with traditional woodworking details. She designed cabinets with fluted columns, bull's-eye trim, panel molding—and drawers only. Along with mimicking freestanding dressers, "this makes for easy, pull-out storage," she points out.
The payoff: A vintage look plus full-extension hardware
