We have known our fair share of apartments whose kitchens feel like an appendage, a foreign object squeezed in for necessity's sake. Which can be awkward at its worst. But it can actually make for a very interesting interior design challenge...
In this Parisian apartment, the challenge was met with an amazing solution: a tiny kitchen, complete with all the works, fit into a "kitchen object" along one wall. The exterior of the kitchen object is finished in dark metal. The interior is painted in a vivid red.
What do you think? Is kitchen-as-object an interesting solution to the small apartment kitchen? We certainly think so!
See the rest of this apartment, which has equally stunning small space solutions beyond the kitchen, at Marie Claire Maison.
