This homeowner put a fitted unit in her small kitchen to make use of every available inch. She had a Formica company custom design the bench seating, which is made out of the same material as her countertops.
To blend her flea market finds into this kitchen, the homeowner kept backgrounds and large items neutral, and then accented with color. The green Ikea lamps keep the space lively and work well with pieces from India and Paris.
Tip: Above-average uses with an average material can make a big difference. The Formica on the countertops isn't anything grand, but extended through the banquette and with extra deep counters, it lends an elegant and modern touch.
