Italian kitchen design powerhouse Scavolini recently opened up a 10,000-square-foot flagship store in Soho, their very first in the United States. The 15 vignettes inside reflect Scavolini at its best: high-end contemporary minimalist kitchens that showcase the power of line, proportion, color, and detail. One of the most remarkable aspects of the kitchens is the use of textures and materials—rich wood, sleek glass, and stainless steel abound in the showroom, creating truly covetous spaces. Here we share a few glimpses of today's grand opening.
Scavolini’s new showroom is located at 429 W Broadway, between Prince and Spring streets.
The fire-engine-red Flux kitchen unabashedly uses color to draw people into the store. Though this design has been around for a couple of years, it was still one of the most attractive and eye-catching areas in the showroom.
In their update to the popular Crystal kitchen, Scavolini partnered with Karim Rashid, who designed the bright geometric patterns.
Bold accents—like the wallpaper in the Tess kitchen—interject personality into the kitchens while maintaining a distinctly Italian sensibility.
The kitchens on the lower level are geared more toward smaller spaces—and budgets—while still keeping the Scavolini aesthetic intact. This one transformed the Flux kitchen into an apartment-minded layout.
The appliances shown in the kitchens are all top-of-the-line. The sculptural fume hoods—like the pale pink one at left—become focal points in the kitchen, transforming what’s typically a workhorse of an appliance into an elegant accent.
