A well-designed kitchen space goes way beyond functionality...  Architectural form, intuitive functionality, innovative space planning and visually inspiring design features enhance the beauty of our kitchen spaces to a whole new level.

This week, we are proud to showcase a contemporary kitchen, designed by Marcus Jelley on behalf of Woodworkers Naples.  The project, located within Marsala at Tiburon Golf and Country Club, features an inspiring kitchen / wet bar to complement the clients sensational custom construction home, by David Sturdyvin for Artisan Associates.

Initially, the floor plan was re-jigged for an improved flowing open-plan space, and to connect kitchen - dining room by creating a walk through within the cabinetry, seen on kitchen elevation 2 below.

Contrasting solid maple cabinetry in dark stain and white custom enamel paint finishes are cleverly juxtaposed together, yet remain separated by a unique architectural cabinetry frame design.  This concept by Marcus Jelley creates two major focal points within the space and allows for effortless transition between the finishes.

The dark stained cabinetry area features a built-in stainless steel Sub Zero fridge freezer, wet bar with nine equally proportioned LED lit frosted glass cabinets and secret pull out pantries built into the vertical frames either side of the walk through to dining room (complete with a high-end german racking system on glides).

The white enamel custom painted cabinetry doors feature a unique linear stepped beading detail and stacked cabinets to the ceiling with LED backlit frosted glass inserts.

The range oven is stepped forward to accommodate a floor to ceiling marble backsplash matching the marble countertop surfaces and creating the second focal point.  A balanced blend of form and function - the break front detail is proportionally exactly the same size as the island marble countertop, perfectly complementing each other.

Our thanks to clients at Marsala, Tiburon Golf and Country Club for allowing us to photograph their beautiful home!

Woodworkers Naples also create incredibly detailed and unique independent pieces of furniture to enhance and update a space.   Below is an exquisite handcrafted custom cabinetry refrigeration armoire, by Woodworkers Naples for a home in Pine Ridge Estates, Naples… 

Fully Custom Handcrafted Walnut Refrigeration Doors by Woodworkers Naples

A customer recently visited our workshop with a vision to create an elegant, functional and beautiful piece of furniture to conceal their refrigeration.  This client wanted to do more than simply integrate with the current kitchen design - but wanted to enhance the beauty of the room as an independent artistic piece.

Two 36-inch unique classically styled walnut panel refrigeration doors and freezer drawers beneath were designed by Woodworkers Naples, featuring heavy raised panels, styles, rails and mullions.  An opening was created in the customer's kitchen and drywalled to fit the template width and height.

Our talented master woodworker, Damien Wardein milled to the project design specification, profiled the pattern with special jigs and crafted all incredibly complex joinery slowly by hand using chisels and hand saws.

The walnut was grain color and thread matched throughout allowing for consistency on the piece and finished with a clear coat of varnish, antique mirror inserts and gorgeous solid handmade brass handles.

Summer inspiration!

Naples Continental Club is a beachfront boutique condo building located on Gulfshore Boulevard North, offering outstanding views of the Gulf of Mexico from all 128 private apartments.  Only steps to the private white sandy beach and minutes to Venetian Village, downtown Naples and Waterside shops, the club boasts an idyllic position to explore the best of the area.

Phase 1 of Remodel…
Antoine Testard Designs dramatically redesigned the entire ground floor of the club, reinventing 2,800 square feet of dark and outdated space.  Small windows, poor circulation and a heavy vaulted wooden ceiling were transformed into a light and bright, elegant contemporary environment, featuring large windows, clean lines and timeless innovative design.

Lobby and reception area, managers office and meeting room were reconfigured and the original large apartment divided into two beautifully fitted guest suites for the use of condo owners and their guests.  General Contractor Morton and Wasmer Builders transformed the space, with handcrafted cabinetry throughout by Woodworkers Naples.

Aria Penthouse - Boutique Condo Remodel | WOODWORKERS NAPLES

Aria Penthouse - Master Bathroom

Magnificent master bathroom with floating walnut vanity and stone trough sink designed by Marcus Jelley, with handcrafted cabinetry by Woodworkers Naples.  The bathroom design perfectly complements the adjoining master closet and features a suspended contemporary stainless steel mirror designed by Roz Travis.

One of our recent remodeling projects is a glamorous penthouse within the luxurious boutique condo building, Aria.  Located in Naples, Florida on the prestigious Gulfshore Boulevard, Aria offers it's residents picture-perfect panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico to Venetian Bay.

The entire apartment space was cleverly reconfigured and redesigned by architect Frank Comeriato for Dyehouse Comeriato Architect, transforming the existing outdoor balcony area into a stunning light-filled interior space.  As a result, large master bedroom, bathroom and closet spaces were created.

Cabinetry and bespoke furniture designer Marcus Jelley, brought life to the new space with a contemporary european cabinetry design, reflecting and connecting consistently with the building's unique curved exterior.  The integration of elegant high glosses, sleek finishes and sophisticated clean lines feature in the master closet, master bathroom, laundry and all secondary guest bedrooms.

Custom cabinetry for the Aria project was handcrafted by our team of artisans at Woodworkers Naples, with meticulous attention to detail on finishes for a luxurious result throughout.  Once again, the project was truly a wonderful collaborative effort working alongside Dave Sturdyvin for Artisan Associates, Roz Travis Interiors and Marcus Jelley.

Aria Penthouse - Master Closet

The luxurious master closet is an enormous space connecting the master bedroom to master bathroom.  Unusually curved at a 45 degree angle, the space inspired a design featuring an expanse of curvilinear floor to ceiling cabinetry, with smoky grey high gloss hand buffed doors sweeping along one side.

To accentuate the curve, the perimeter of the doors above and below were wrapped with a 2 inch frame.  The grey smoked oak cabinetry interior features drawers handcrafted from beautifully rich solid walnut, each lined in faux ostrich skin leather.  (This luxurious drawer style is uniformly repeated throughout the entire apartment.)  Details and finishing touches to the closet include;  suitcase shelves, an upholstered ottoman by Roz Travis, overhead curvilinear LED lighting to complement the cabinetry design and a gentleman's tallboy stack of drawers.
