While maintaining a minimal appeal, Cloe drives away any sense of blandness or monotony by combining different materials that surprise you with their textural variance. Knotted oak cabinets are coupled with eco-cement surfaces to paint a truly exceptional picture. Each knotted oak kitchen is specially treated with vegetable oils and waxes, and you can choose between either an unfinished look or polished lacquered surfaces. The eco-cement obviously brings a certain industrial vibe to this lovely kitchen.
Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90’s ‘cubicle’ trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.
Regardless of the lack of exposed brick, the loft gets its New York flair from iron-framed windows. These extend across the entire main room, opening it up to the city views much like it is done in the New York lofts. The white walls, columns, and staircase, however, give it a classic Scandinavian look. There aren’t many decorations or design elements, so the frosty minimal atmosphere very much translates into the Nordic aesthetic.
