The Kitchen’s Softer Side
It’s been a busy spring for the design team at Pulp Design Studio. Over the last two months, we’ve back and forth across the country from Dallas Market to Modernism Week in Palm Springs and to North Carolina for the annual High Point Market. One particular trend did emerge that could make its way into the kitchen.
We saw a huge trend on ethereal sculptural elements in interiors and furniture. Lighting, furniture, wall art, and accessories all presented themselves in this stunning trend, drawing us all in with an artistic feel. We are all seeking comfort in uncertain times, and our interiors are trending this way with a higher focus on comfort and softer edges.
How will we see this warmer more sculptural trend finds its way into the typically hard-edged kitchen and bath space, where things tend to be a bit more square and utilitarian? Will millwork soften? Will appliances begin to become a sculptural art form? Will countertops take on a new form?
Or will we simply see the contrast in furnishings and lighting, playing off of the traditional boxed kitchen styling?
We are excited to watch and see how designers are challenged to soften their designs as this trend towards softer curves continues to integrate instead further into our interiors.
