Since 2008 House Beautiful has presented the ‘Kitchen of the Year’ showcase. This year the design and culinary event was held in Atlanta on May 14 and May 15. Master kitchen and bath designer Matthew Quinn was selected to design the 1,000- square-foot space, and as you can see his work is truly inspiring!

For the first time in its nine year run, the Kitchen of the Year was built in a newly constructed home – previous Kitchens have been freestanding installations or renovations – allowing Quinn to tailor the space to the life and style of the homeowner.

Quinn, an Atlanta-based designer, is known for combining artistry and function to create kitchens that are truly bespoke and reflect the taste and needs of his clients. In addition to his interiors work, Quinn is a product designer, with collections of hardware and stone and metal mantels and hoods. His aesthetic integrates the grace of classic design while making a modern statement.
