Stylish Modern Wood-and-Steel Kitchen Design Idea
One of the greatest ways to create contrast in a design is to combine natural and traditional materials with modern ones. Set in stark contrast to one another, the use of diversely grained and colored wood with striking, sleek and reflective metal surfaces makes this kitchen by Unikat at once contemporary and comfortable.
A stainless steel band creates a functional accent, wrapping around the wooden central seating-and-preparation table to make a useful surface for preparing, eating and drinking. The theme is repeated with the oven behind - another wood front wrapped by steel all around.
The seats associated with the island are designed to sit at a height allowing people to cozy up to the table. Made of colorfully differentiated wood connected at odd angles, the chairs again pick up the theme of contemporary-and-natural, using just wood but in a modern and rectilinear way.
