Last week we deconstructed a vintage-style white and stainless kitchen; this week we feature a light-flooded modernist kitchen in San Francisco with warm wood tones by Schwartz & Architecture. Photos by Matthew Millman.

Above: Consider the eco-friendly Squak Mountain Stone Composite Countertop. Developed by an entrepreneur as part of her master’s thesis (she was attempting to produce a building material using only locally sourced and recycled materials), the countertop is made from Portland cement, waste flyash, waste glass dust, mixed waste paper, and pigments. Coated with a food-grade acrylic sealant and buffed to a sheen, the material is stain resistent and warm to the touch. Available in slabs or tiles. Sample packs are available to purchase for $50 through the Environmental Home Center (product details and pricing availabe also).

Above: A kitchen investment piece: the Wolf 36-inch Dual Fuel Range; $7,499 at Warners' Stellian.

Available in two sizes: the 7-ounce Kartio Tumbler is $20 for a pair and the 13-ounce Kartio Tumbler is $26 a pair at ZincDetails. Available in clear or light blue.
