Designed for Finnish furniture brand Lundia as a trade show booth, this kitchen from designer Joanna Laajisto is a great example of the potential in black finishes. While it takes the right context to balance out the dark, black finishes are a decidedly undervalued design feature. Laajisto plays off the lightness of the plywood walls, but her design would suit a nice white, light-filled space too. Black could even be brought in to break up the look of wall cabinets, paired with brighter base cabinet color. For more, be sure to check out Emma’s.
