Sometimes you see something that sticks with you – a harbinger of a trend or idea. I’ve seen two different variations of a semi-professional kitchen island in cool stainless steel, combined with voluptuous velvet curtains. Once in Emmanuel Picault’s house in Mexico, which was spectacular because it has no walls, and once in Milan at the Salone del Mobile at Studiopepe’s presentation The Visit. In this collage, a tailor-made stainless steel kitchen by Arjan Lodder and velvet curtains by Kvadrat.
