With their best foot forward over 160 exhibitors participated in all that is the latest and greatest in the Design World for kitchens. For one week hundreds of thousands of people flooded several sites throughout the amazing city of Milano, Italy.

Eurocucina was held at Rho Fiera Fairgrounds on the outskirts — featuring over 26,000 sq meters of kitchen products including a collateral event showcasing the latest in technology for the kitchen.

To attend Europe’s only major Trade Show that focuses on the kitchen was not only a bit overwhelming but a privilege as well. Over 300,000 professionals (60% attend from foreign Nations) demonstrates how favoured this conference has become.

Europeans still love the lacquer kitchen. Lots of concrete counters and sinks. Coloured glass overlay cabinets  with metal and leather accents could not be ignored. A discerning client for certain.

From one extreme to the next – this featured kitchen  was in a home visited in the Dolomite mountain region after the show. The original home was built over a century ago. Cooking a simple meal was a real treat within the embrace of history and the mountain range.  Take note of  the ‘new’ Electrolux frig? They love their colour!

Stay tuned for more images and insights into the world of the custom kitchen!
