Rustic Kitchens

Boffi's Aprile range of kitchens goes back to basics.

Designed to bring out the natural elements in kitchen materials, Boffi has come out with a collection called 'Aprile'. Using treated wood finishes, stainless steel and stone, Boffi uses its innovative design principles in order to create a unique kitchen concept. The extractor hoods are designed to let in optimum ventilation in order to create an ideal social kitchen concept, without offensive odours.

This kitchen is a mix of the old and the modern, with the breakfast bar featuring solid wood that is mounted on stainless steel legs. You can choose from different suspended wall units with open face or sliding doors; enabling you to customise your kitchen and make it your own. In 2012, Boffi Soho offered worktops in white Corian and very thin stainless steel, as well as doors of different width and thickness made of solid staves treated with oil. The idea of a modular kitchen is emphasised. The framework interiors have either an anthracite or a graphite oak wood. The woody veneers and finishes are exemplary, creating a feeling of warmth and invites. The sinks are designed to accommodate various accessories such as a grill and chopping board. The oil-treated doors can be made of solid wood rods in several widths so that it creates a 3D effect on the handles that are built into the door. 

Timeless design are what will make this particular Boffi kitchen perfect for every home. It offers you extra shelves for utilities and so much more in terms of getting rid of the clutter. Designed by Pierro Lissoni, the renowned designer and founder of Lissoni Associati in 1986. He regularly works with top-notch brands such as Boffi, Cassina, Porro and Tecno. This kitchen series is classically Lissoni, baring minimalism at its best; along with a hint of nature embedded in stone and wood.
