I’ve shown this display in the Invita showroom before from a different angle. It’s a god example of how white is used combined with warm wood and texture to give a furniture-like look. The expanse of white countertop and integrated sink allow this design to have a visual flow.
The right chair can make a strong design statement in the kitchen dining space. Texture and design communicate the style message. This chair is by Nicholas Lee. Flexible comfort, maybe one with a cushion and the other type without.
This is what Danish design is all about - simplicity, comfort, function, beauty. This is a vintage table and set of chairs for everyday dining.
Get flooring material and make a table. Find a base, any kind of base and the design will be yours alone. This Scandinavian table design was shot by me in Illums Bolighus. It also allows for the appreciation of the natural wood characteristics.
Natural wood kitchen in the kvadrat showroom in Pakhus48 in Copenhagen. Soft, natural, warm.
Wood enveloping the space adds a calming effect, perfect for punches of color
Another view of a summer house in Denmark. I love the simple windows and enveloping natural wood flooring and paneling.

Still another Multiform white kitchen characterized by white, marble, and stainless steel working harmoniously together with added warmth from the table and rug (it’s their Copenhagen showroom)
A wood Multiform kitchen shot by me at their Copenhagen showroom. What works beautifully is the contrast of the rich wood cabinetry and the cooler, but not cold, gray countertop fitted with a stainless sink. Very complementary materials and colors.
A VERY warm and rustic feeling kitchen yet with a contrast of smooth, modern, cabinetry. Its style leans more toward rustic than modern. With busy, traditional cabinetry and lighting in place of what is there now, in this small space the kitchen would be visually cluttered IMO.
Wood kitchen from a Copenhagen showroom in a classic modern, and very warm, design.
I don’t know where in Copenhagen I took this shot of this amazing light colored flooring, but I have not seen it before or since. The texture is unique-organic yet classic and modern as so much of Scandinavian design is.
So incredibly gorgeous, I’m nearly speechless……
Interesting mix of materials in this kitchen - zero storage, but I will assume a few things:
- storage is elsewhere
- the kitchen gets light use
- it’s a kitchen in a second home
Here is a case where the desired aesthetic completely drove the design of the kitchen and trumped function. No judgment on that - I’d love a sort of fantasy kitchen solely designed around an aesthetic vision - that’s true luxury in one sense. From Rum magazine.
