We visited another house designed by Fred Bassetti, the same architect for our house. (More on that later if they let me share the photos!) Of every cool thing I saw in that house, and there was plenty, I fell in love with the original cabinets. Yep, an entire kitchen full of the original plywood cabinets and the (almost) original stainless countertops.
But where does one find such things in this day and age? Our kitchen was renovated about 20 years or so (I’d guess) with a more traditional cabinet choice for that time, as you can see.
Unfortunately, while nice cabinetry (made nicer with our paint job!), they don’t quite go with our vision of what a mid-century kitchen should look like.
I loved the cabinets in this other Bassetti designed house on the island and would love to get something close to this. But beyond, IKEA, where does one look?
Then I saw and ad for Kerf Design in the most recent issue of Atomic Ranch.
Located right here in Seattle, Kerf makes ‘plywood cabinets and furniture for the modern home.’ Their website has one of my favorite quotes about form following function.
“If it is not useful or necessary, free yourself from imagining that you need to make it.”
So join me in my fantasy kitchen (and bathroom) indulgence with the following photos. Such wonderful inspiration for dreaming…
