Scavolini embraces the latest kitchen trends with its newest collections
August 2023: Scavolini always keeps an eye on the latest kitchen trends when designing its furniture, whether that’s adding interest with tactile finishes or creating contrasts with different materials. In recent months, the leading Italian manufacturer has launched several exciting new collections: Lumina, Musa, Libra and Mira. All of these new ranges are designed to work beautifully from kitchen through to living room, uniting the spaces and creating flow between them. Additionally, each collection brings up-to-the-minute looks to the home, as the following four trends illustrate.
Added texture with Lumina
Contemporary kitchens are embracing texture as a way of creating both visual and tactile interest in the design. No collection does this better than Lumina, which includes options of delicately ribbed glass doors that are used to great effect on the island unit (main image, top). The ribbing contrasts perfectly with the smooth matt finish of the Jaipur Red Fenix NTM breakfast bar and tall units behind.
Elsewhere in the Lumina range, there is an option of another texture – perforated Sheet Metal doors in Dark Steel with a choice of Round (above) or Linear perforations. The doors can also be lit from within to make a stylish display of the contents inside.
Material contrasts with Musa
The Musa kitchen (above) showcases a blend of contrasting materials. It features warm wood veneer, complemented by a steel breakfast bar and sink that add a cooler, industrial touch. Furthermore, the island’s slatted veneer doors provide a pleasing contrast to the smooth pearl-effect Pas Dosé lacquer on the tall units behind.
These materials work well together precisely because they’re different. Layers and contrasts add depth to the design and make it more interesting than something that matches perfectly. As a result, you’re less likely to tire of it, making Musa a kitchen for the long term – which is also an environmental plus point.
Restrained elegance with Libra
With open-plan living spaces as popular as ever, the need for elegant kitchen cabinetry that is made to be seen continues. This is where Scavolini’s Libra collection comes in (above and below). With furniture designed to work in kitchens, living rooms and even the bathroom, it offers a sophisticated and cohesive look throughout.
What immediately sets Libra apart is Perlage, a beautiful but restrained pearlescent colour available on flat slab doors or doors with a distinctive ribbed effect (seen in the kitchen below). Recessed profile grip doors complete the look of Libra, adding a functional element that doesn’t detract from the simplicity of the cabinet fronts. For an on-trend tone-on-tone effect, the grip profiles and plinths can be matched with the doors to ensure that the striking finishes speak for themselves.
Quiet luxury with Mira
Scavolini’s latest collection, Mira, chimes rather neatly with the current trend for quiet luxury – a movement in fashion and interiors for a look that is both understated and elegant. It accomplishes this through its palette of soft colours, finishes inspired by nature and pared-back but not austere design. Mira is designed to feel luxurious but help to make the space eminently liveable too.
A great example of this is the colourway shown (above), which combines Scavolini’s beautiful muted Comodoro Green with natural wood-effect doors and Moon porcelain worktops. The textured melamine in Lodge unites the design, appearing on the island, oven housing, tall units and as an accent on the wall cupboards above the sink run, where it makes a clever feature of the integrated extractor. The shelf on the front of the island is another nice detail, providing space for books or ornaments and bridging the gap between kitchen and living space.
