Why This Room Caught My Eye

9 July 2013 0


I am a big fan of the String shelving system. So far I have always seen it in living rooms or home offices. But never in a kitchen – until I’ve spotted the above shown picture. A String shelving system for the kitchen? I’d say oh yes! Well, I could definitely live with this kitchen concept (I keep repeating: If I had a decent kitchen), but for the time being I can just indulge in this photography and here’s what caught my eye:

  • String Shelving: Well of course the most obvious first – the incredibly cool and stylish String shelving. I really love it cause it’s a sort of design understatement. It is simple, unostentatious, sleek and rather sophisticated. Definitely a cool choice – even for the kitchen!
  • Industrial Pendant: This low-hanging, black glossy industrial pendant is a perfect match for the shelving system made of wood and white metal strings. It adds a certain urban vibe to the setting.
  • Bistro Chairs: These seem just perfect here – they catch up the pendant’s black colour and seem to counteract the rather modern shelving system by recalling the timelessness of old Parisian bistros and brasseries – a visual delight!
What caught your eye? What’s your opinion on the String shelving?

    Waugh I totally agree with you on that, I also think the lack of color and the consistend use of mostly black, white and natural makes it a kitchen I love to look at … By the way Congratulations with the top German bloggers Nomination!
