Joburg, taking place in May, has these tips for giving a classic kitchen a more modern, industrial look:
As this open-plan, farm-style kitchen had classical detailing throughout, to add contrast we decided to introduce bold industrial elements such as the dark pendant lamps over the island, which balance and define the space.
We chose a charred teak dining table and layered this with patinated objet d’art and hints of glass and metal.
The dark lacquered Nora dining chairs bridge the gap between old and new.
A playful mix of soft and hard materials, strategically placed, creates depth and interest.
