Need an Ikea Upgrade? Here are 34 Accessories for Your New, Grown-Up Kitchen
When it comes to personal possessions, there’s a pivotal moment in the life of most urban dwellers when you go from having roommates to moving into your own place, and you rush to Ikea to buy the things you’re lacking in one fell swoop. But there’s a second pivotal moment that comes later — maybe when you turn 30, maybe when you move in with or marry a spouse or partner — when you suddenly realize you’re a grown-up who needs grown-up stuff, and all those old, cheap placeholders just aren’t enough. Where do you rush to then? Ideally you don’t rush at all, of course, but this week we happened to be browsing one of the most comprehensive online sources for contemporary housewares — AllModern — when it struck us as a pretty great bet, particularly for anyone who needs to fill a cabinet (or registry) with designy kitchen items. AllModern’s sheer size can be disconcerting, but here, we’ve done the work for you, unearthing all the gems we could find by the likes of Aldo Rossi, Os & Oos, Norm Architects, John Pawson, The Principals, and Achille Castiglioni — not to mention all those anonymous pieces that look way too elevated to pass up (and a Rachael Ray piece that’s strangely on-trend?).
