Jennifer Gilmer, renowned kitchen designer and 2009 National Kitchen and Bath design winner, designed the stunning, Zen-like 276 square foot Bethesda, Maryland contemporary styled,eco-friendly kitchen pictured above.  Jennifer’s kitchen “Green” design focused on the usage of sustainable and environmentally friendly materials ranging from the custom mixed stain to the cabinetry. 

The Columbia Forest Products’ PureBond hardwood plywood used in this kitchen design project is manufactured utilizing:

… a formaldehyde-free adhesive derived from food-grade soy flour and a wet strength resin used in printed currency and milk cartons. This proprietary assembly system, known as PureBond®, is non-toxic and cost-competitive with urea formaldehyde based plywood products. There is absolutely no added urea formaldehyde in the adhesive or the components. (source Columbia Forest Products)

Jennifer used ML Campbell’s Aqualente finish which is a:

GREENGUARD Certified, low VOC, non-yellowing, self-sealing, easy sanding, pre-catalyzed water borne clear coating for interior wood surfaces. Agualente lacquer is based on breakthrough European resin technology that produces no hazardous off-gassing during cure. Its new technology provides trouble-free application as well as a beautiful appearance, mirroring its solvent-based counterpart. (source ML Campbell)

The other Green kitchen design products and services used for this project:

  • The solid wood is domestic black walnut.
  • The stain was custom mixed, using AFM  Safecoat DuroStain.
  • The cabinet’s were created by cabinetmakers – Andrew Daum / Victory Woodworking of Canaan, New Hampshire.
