ON THE SCENE : Pedini Opening Party

Modernism IS in your neighborhood. Cady's Alley in Georgetown, Washington, DC, has become a host to direct public access to intelligent modern design. One of the new kids on the block, Pedini, opened it's doors to allow for an inside look at the sleek modern Italian kitchens and storage systems it will be offering to Washington's modern design starved urbanites. Here commercial functionality meets the warmer residential needs of today's best designed kitchens. Key features that caught our eye were the concealed and fully integrated appliances, darker organic colors matched with softer white marble counters and matte stainless steel hardware. Well-crafted cabinetry with smooth hardware and fine woods are only made more appealing by the variety of looks, from clean and simple minimalistic to graceful, dramatic sweeping curves.

Owner, Roy Wellman, has been hard at work preparing for the opening, which included a cooking demonstration and appetizers as pleasing to the eye as to the palatte, prepared by Ris Lacoste, former executive chef of Georgetown's 1789, who is reportedly putting the finishing touches on her much anticipated new restaurant, slated to open later this year.

We wish Roy and the Pedini DC Family much luck, and are pleased with this recent entry into DC's design market!
