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.
