This season Minacciolo is introducing Minà – a novel, bold rust finish for kitchen design. Imaginative recall of the vintage appearance in Italian tradition this unusual material selection offers highly textured reddish-brown rust effect that has retro yet decidedly contemporary feel. The multi-purpose Minà Island has a special treatment that gives a unique aged look and also provides an appealing texture. Artistic custom made knobs and details add to the vintage charm of the assembly. The tall cabinets are reminiscent of ice-boxes from the early decades of the 1900-s, and the warm reddish highlights introduce cozy nuance to the premises.
It is interesting that the blue hues and tonalities give to the certain kitchen vintage or rustic charm and even when the set is contemporary in its appearance and functionality like in the case of Metalwood by Key Cucine – the vintage hint is present. Here the dark shades of gray and a new color shade vino (based on Marsala, Pantone Color of the Year 2015) entwine in one cozy arrangement that includes vintage hints of the design. The kitchen Casa Vino by Rational combines all the advantages of a modern high-tech lifestyle with “old-fashioned“ cozy living.
We do realize that in confined urban living arrangements large kitchen is not allayed an option and sometimes not even a necessity. People who like to cook but rarely do so may enjoy taking the challenge of improvising in small kitchens. Here are some examples of small kitchen settings that do not lack style, trendiness or aesthetic appearance.
Here is a similar kitchen island shape frame designed by Pattina Kitchen for Sanwa Company, Japan, featuring matte black frame, rough wood grain pattern and Italian-made ceramic tiles countertop. The composition has a simple, clear lined construction that possesses certain elegance and modern appearance with just a hint of retro design and “old-fashioned” spirit.
