During a recent trip to London, I had the opportunity to spend some quality time at Poggenpohl’s Waterloo kitchen showroom. This London trip was arranged courtesy of Blog Tour 2011, an idea conceived by Veronika Miller, founder of Modenus, to bring design bloggers to the London Design Festival. Luckily for me, a visit to a Poggenpohl kitchen showroom was on our agenda!
Following are interesting design ideas that I spotted at the showroom – and check out the Blanco sinks!
Below, highly textured wood cabinetry paired with sleek white and stainless steel-take a look at the lucite dining chairs and glass table-cool!
Below, I'm thinking that, after removing the third bottle of wine during dinner, this higher position of the wine refrigerator should prove to be useful!
Below, a crisp/tailored undermount sink and separate drainboard by Blanco. I love the look of the separate pieces and the recycling bins below are perfectly situated.
Below, another Blanco sink and interesting countertop shapes and forms.
Below, note the difference in countertop thicknesses - the island is thick, the opposite countertop is thin - quite interesting to change it up.
Below, exploiting horizontal lines...
Below, sleek white cabinetry, playing with volume...
Below, on trend neutral, flesh tone shades in textured wood juxtaposed with sleek, glossy, cabinetry.
I have more images of this beautiful showroom I will share, but in the meantime, thank you to those at the Poggenpohl Waterloo showroom for giving us such a warm welcome!
