Rooted in the notion that the kitchen is the heart of today’s home, CetraRuddy has designed their first publicly available kitchen design to be called INSPIRA.
INSPIRA is designed to elevate the kitchen into a central living space in the home with attention to scale, proportion and exceptional handcrafted quality. Made in Italy, INSPIRA creates an unprecedented and luxuriously sophisticated full kitchen collection, and celebrates innovative kitchen design with creative approaches to workspace and a rich palette of materials.
The design of INSPIRA begins with a bold gesture: a crafted, architectonic proscenium in warm wood tones that surrounds the cooking center, reflecting the home’s spiritual core. Within this elegant frame, function is finessed through refined lines and hidden hardware, full overlay doors and maximized storage, executed with warmth and memorable style. Hand-tooled with uniquely crafted metals, woods and the glisten of glass, INSPIRA’s meticulous lines capture a chic, modern feel while embracing the best of longstanding kitchen traditions. It is an American style with international appeal.
A true cook’s kitchen, INSPIRA incorporates subtle, rectilinear detailing that recalls the luxury of traditional cabinetmaking, interpreted in a unique and modern style. Under the proscenium arch, a dramatic-sculpted metal range hood defines the cooking center, creating a dramatic focal point reminiscent of great manor houses of the past.
Rich materials and detailing artistically combine luxurious woods, lacquered finishes, and elegant ornamental metals to create an ensemble that inspires. INSPIRA offers three exquisite finish motifs consisting of cabinets, metals, countertops and backsplashes: white enameled wood with nickel detailing; ebonized mink wood cabinets with accents of statuary bronze; and a dramatic, back-painted milk glass with nickel trim. Double stepped-edge cabinets and sculpted metal strap island details add to the vibrant, richly conceived kitchens. Every touch creates truly crafted, expert ensembles — all by globally renowned designer Nancy J. Ruddy and her team.
