Five of the best kitchen concepts from EuroCucina

Vintage culinary accessories

Go back a slice in time with vintage copper pans, pewter pots, worn wooden spoons and handmade wicker baskets. Mounted on the wall or hanging above the kitchen island, such accessories will add a rustic edge to commercial-style units or a cute touch to French-chic kitchenettes. Read more about our trend review of commercial kitchens spotted at the Fuorisalone on DesignFix.

Timber kitchens

Whether accented with an over-sized chopping board appendage to the counter, dressed floor to ceiling in mahogany, wood played a starring role in the new kitchen designs showcased in the culinary quarter of Milan’s Salone del Mobile, EuroCucina.  However, the wooden kitchens of 2016 are far from farmhouse; think modern, sleek and industrial, complementing the common trend of the festival.

Slanted sides

Never bang a knee on a cupboard door again with ergonomic kitchens designed around a cook’s most natural stance. Scavolini’s Motus Model kitchen combines slanted worktops with a nod to the 1950s’, seen in the breakfast bar’s tapered legs.

Grow your own

Rossana combines several trending elements in its new K-In/K-Out kitchen – open shelving, boxed vegetable and herb gardens, a versatile central island for both indoor and outdoor use, and innovative sliding stone-clad planes that either hide or reveal the work surface underneath. Following the vegetable plot boom in England and America at the start of the decade, when city spots of land were backed up with year-long waiting lists, such boxed herb gardens are perfect for high-rise and compact urban dwellings, and add rural charm to the setting as well as fresh flavours to the cooking.

American show-home

Contrasting with the pervading ‘back to basics’ aesthetic of industrial, natural and rustic elements, the clean, sleek look of the traditional all-American suburban kitchen seems to be experiencing a revival. A monochrome palette, marble floors and splashbacks, glass-fronted multi-pane display cabinets (for one’s best glassware and china gravy boats) and a large crystal chandelier over a central island creates an elegant  look for large villas.
