International Supermodel Coco Rocha Selects Dekton® for New York Farmhouse Project

International supermodel, Coco Rocha has once again selected the worldwide leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, Cosentino for a stunning home renovation project. Best known for her incredible career, spanning over a decade, Rocha has graced the covers of Vogue and Elle and walked for esteemed designers such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Calvin Klein.  Now with a young family, Coco and her husband James have turned their focus onto Model Camp, a programme for young girls to learn skills on how to navigate the modelling world.

Situated in New York State Coco’s recently renovated farmhouse acts as a family retreat as well as a base for the couple’s Model Camp business.  During these months, the duo house up to 12 students from around the globe, so it was important that the space was stylish yet warm and inviting.  Commenting on the building’s origins Coco said, “This place is great because it’s both stylish and cosy.  It was owned by an older man and was quite run down when we bought it, but there was a clear vision for how it needed to be.  We wanted to keep the character and aesthetics of the house but add modern twists like playful pops of colour and the addition of a sleek kitchen. The girls that enroll in our Model Camp programme travel from all over the globe, so a homely vibe was really important for us.”

The large, open-plan kitchen has been designed to encourage socialising at meal times, whilst also allowing guests the freedom and space to prepare food.  The original wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room was removed to allow more natural light into the area.  Elements including stylish rustic furniture and pendant lighting were added to the space to achieve a balance of both modern and traditional styles.  Coco comments, “The kitchen is a now a great space for conversation and congregation. I can cook and everyone else can sit at the island or on in the lounge area without feeling too distant. It’s perfect.”

Worktops specified in stunning Dekton® Opera with its intricate grey veining complement the bright white metro tiles and black kitchen accessories perfectly.  Its waterfall design flows neatly onto the floor, creating a stylish overhang for seating. Coco’s husband, James was immediately drawn to the surface commenting, “We really love the look and feel of our Dekton® worktop, it’s like smooth satin. It’s so tactile and makes the kitchen much more inviting and also created a space for seating.”  Ideal for use in the kitchen, Dekton® is highly resistant to heat, scratches and stains and can easily withstand the demands of a busy kitchen. It’s also incredibly easy to clean.
