Destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, the Emmy Award-winning television producer had to completely rebuild his home on the South Oyster Bay in Massapequa. Starting from scratch, he decided to move the kitchen and living space up to the second floor so he could take advantage of the incredible water views.
“I’m constantly traveling,” the homeowner explained. “I’ve stayed in beautiful high-end hotels and resorts and I wanted the same soothing spa like look and feel for my house.” Michael Rosenberg, kitchen designer and partner at Showcase Kitchen of Massapequa, transformed his vision into reality. “The homeowner came into the showroom with very particular ideas for his kitchen,” remarked Rosenberg, “including a specific type of Italian high gloss lacquer cabinet. We gave him exactly the look and feel he wanted.”
The design includes opaque frosted glass doors, which flank the Wolf range, a milky glass backsplash, thick mitered waterfall Cambria “Whitney” Quartz countertops, stainless steel toe
kicks and a paneled Sub Zero refrigerator.
Steve DeMarco from Old World Construction did the installation. “I love working with Showcase,” he explained. “Mike is one of the best designers out there. Clients love him.”
Admiration and respect was key in this kitchen project, as expressed by all three gentlemen. The homeowner said it best, “This was the best and easiest experience imaginable.”
It takes an Emmy Award-worthy team to create an Emmy Award-worthy kitchen.
