Viking Range, LLC, the leader in residential kitchen technology, has named Susan and Armand Rocco as 2021 Designers of Distinction. Susan and Armand are the founders of The Kitchenworks Inc. Designers from around the United States are vying for the coveted honor to become the 2021 Viking Designer of the Year.

Susan and Armand describes the project below:

The home is a vintage gem, a stately 1920’s abode designed by a celebrated local architect of the times. The rooms flow into one another, each piecing snapshots of days past, reminders of old Florida living. So when it came time to update the kitchen, the homeowners were certain from the beginning that paramount to the design would be a vintage ethos. For that classic glamour, a black and white palette was the basis of the design. Fortunately, function was not sacrificed in this pursuit thanks to Viking’s line of black appliances which heightened the stylistic effect. Unlike scenarios where designers are fighting the visual presence of the appliances by paneling, this line was indispensable in accompanying this showstopping kitchen. The black appliances hold their own presence and become points of interest, balancing the black and white composition. All stainless appliances or paneled would not yield the results achieved. They make for one satisfactory remodel, that is every bit as refreshing and unique as nostalgic.
