Everything is in its place in these beautiful pantries from the AD archives.
Designer Barbara Westbrook fashioned a gracious, party-ready home boasting two pantries for longtime clients in South Carolina. In the butler's pantry, diamond-pattern glass door fronts and a crystal chandelier lend a dressed-up look to the cabinetry.
To provide a handsome focal point in the storage pantry, which is visible from the foyer, Westbrook backed open shelving with a slab of Italian marble; the space, off the kitchen, has its own sink and appliances and functions as a secondary prep area.
Antique Wedgwood and Coalport china is stored in the pantry of architect Jim Joseph and musical theater composer Scott Frankel's upstate New York home.
The pantry of architect Alison Spear's Hudson Valley, New York, home is outfitted with a 1930s pendant light and heirloom china; the dishwasher is by Miele.
In the Nashville, Tennessee, home he shares with his partner, TV executive John Shea, designer Ray Booth devised a working pantry lined with open shelves for tableware. The sink and fittings are by Kohler.
Shoji-like doors conceal the pantry in the Los Angeles home of actress Jamie Lee Curtis and her husband, actor and director Christopher Guest.
