Anchoring a room that contains a kitchen, breakfast area, and family sitting area, the upholstered cherry piece turns a different face to each function: a counter with a bar sink toward the kitchen, a semicircular seating booth at the breakfast area, and a lower, compound-curved built-in sofa facing the family rooms fireplace.

Kochman Reidt + Haigh Cabinetmakers (KR+H) has teamed up with architect Doreve Nicholaeff on a number of projects over the years, so the millwork firm has become adept at harmonizing its designs with the serpentine lines that are a frequent motif in Nicholaeff’s plans. “It’s got us really good at doing curved work,” says KR+H partner Paul Reidt, who shows just how good with the three-sided banquette he produced for a new Shingle style house on Cape Cod, Mass.

Anchoring a room that contains a kitchen, breakfast area, and family sitting area, the upholstered cherry piece turns a different face to each function: a counter with a bar sink toward the kitchen, a semicircular seating booth at the breakfast area, and a lower, compound-curved built-in sofa facing the family room’s fireplace. With its low profile, the assembly—fabricated of figured cherry, with a wenge top at the breakfast table—organizes the multipurpose space without impeding the room’s expansive view of Nantucket Sound.
