One day I will have saved enough money to finally have the kitchen of my dreams. But until that day comes, I can collect images of how my new space will look. I love the practicality of an Ikea kitchen. Well designed, easy to put together and affordable too. It’s a kitchen that can be designed to your own individual needs on a relatively cheap budget.
But what if you want the function and ease of an Ikea kitchen, but the look of a high end architectural space? Then enter Reform. A Danish company that takes the humble Ikea unit and turns it into something highly desirable.
The Danish design company is set to launch their latest kitchens designed by internationally acclaimed architects and designers; Studio David Thulstrup, Note Design Studio, and Muller Van Severen have applied their award-winning skills to Reform’s growing design family, resulting in uncompromisingly modern kitchens that push the boundaries of conventional industry thinking. Launched last week at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York and 3daysofdesign in Copenhagen, the new designs offer bold, new perspectives from the Scandinavian kitchen reformers.
Last November, I visited the design studio of Note in Stockholm, Sweden – and saw first hand how they work with brands do help design new and innovate ideas. Their latest collaboration sees Note and Reform bring together kitchen design. And I am personally loving the results.
THE CLEAN LINES OF SCANDINAVIA MEET A WARM, NATURE-INSPIRED AESTHETIC IN AN INVITING KITCHEN THAT YOU WANT TO TOUCH, SEE AND EXPERIENCE.
Multidisciplinary and forward-thinking, the Stockholmers at Note Design Studio studio have a vibrant design portfolio to their name that ties together a diverse range of creative impulses. Their kitchen design is no exception; nature’s rich and varied colour scheme is a strong influence in an oak-led solution that takes in multiple viewpoints from the studio’s 16 designers and architects, and makes them come together in sturdy panels and solid wood for the protection of your pots, pans and essential everyday items.
FRAME by Note Design Studio puts people at the centre, and it makes you want to reach out and touch wood. With three colours to choose from – blue, oak and white – it makes a hard choice!
I’m a long way off starting my kitchen make over – but when I do, I’ll be giving Reform a call.
