Old materials used in new and creative ways. Styles are being updated and new ones are created but the materials used remain the same. We rarely get to introduce new materials. In most cases we just find new ways of using them.
The Drawer Kitchen is a design by with architectural characteristics. The kitchen island is particularly unusual but its design is not surprising, considering the style. A series of practical drawers looking like solid blocks form the island, the base being made of white birch wood, with a steel top and flush mounted burners and sink. A compact kitchen designed to be both practical and eye-catching.
Traditional components: curvy marble-topped wood-carved island like this would traditionally be a show-stopper in the parlor or formal living room. Or, at least, a smaller version of it would be. Here, under a chunky decorative chandelier, it’s a major player in this kitchen’s traditional sensibilities.
Traditional components: Rich earth tones, loads of natural materials, and a lot of visual things going on in this kitchen make it feel like it’s been around for years. Traditional gold-framed artwork and a variety of color on almost all surfaces definitely send out a hearty sit-down-and-have-a-homecooked-meal vibe.
Contemporary components: white cupboards, a stainless steel stove (and the token red knobs that go with it!) and modern fixtures, coupled with a vast sense of sheer space, brings the kitchen beautifully up-to-date.
