Milan Design Week: More from Eurocucina 2016

Last
week I kicked off my Eurocucina highlights from my Milan Design Week trip here.
Today I’m going to take you through some of the other trends I spotted while
walking the halls of kitchen design and kitchen technology.

In contrast to
the hidden kitchen trend there was another consistent trend of
open shelving.
 Throughout the show kitchen spaces with open shelves were literally on
display everywhere. These impeccable styled shelves often came festooned with
greenery – another trend spot see below.

There
was the industrial open shelving of Diesel for Scavolini with faux
reinforced glass elements, the multifunctional slim Poliform wall
units seen styled with jars of spices  and wine glasses.

It’s a trend
for the neat and the style conscious I feel, as these open shelves are not to
be overloaded or they will easily become messy. Open shelving isn’t
revolutionary in itself but the sheer volume of exhibitors showing this option
means that they certainly feel confident that the consumer wants the
perfect instagram ready kitchen. 

Greenery
was everywhere in the styling of kitchens, so many plants at times it almost
seemed like a garden show. The indoor herb garden was a strong healthy living
component at Lottocento, Antonio Citterio for Arclinea and Rossana. A kitchen garden resolution seems
to be on horizon and I think just a little influenced by the fantastic Urban Jungle Bloggers community.

The
end result was a fabulous explosion of nature indoors and I think this greenery
trend will find its way into our homes in more and more ways in the future.

Have you noticed how moody the palette seems to be with the kitchens?
This is why the green is looking so very lovely.
