Smart storage for silverware. Hidden Assets
Finding space for 34 sets
of occasional silverware
in Toronto designer Philip
Mitchell’s snug 6' x 16' galley
kitchen. The sets needed to
be convenient, but couldn’t
crowd out everyday tools.
Install secret drawers in the 4"-high space behind
the kitchen’s baseboards. “That’s space that’s never
used and in an apartment, you have to maximize
every square inch,” says Mitchell. Bellini Custom
Cabinetry installed the 42" w. x 24" d. drawer on
two full extension gliders so it slides smoothly in
and out. Pacific cloth lines the interior to slow down
tarnishing, while custom dividers keep pieces in order.
4 OF A KIND Tray Chic
Celebrating its 250th
anniversary this year,
Wedgwood recently issued
its latest pattern, Intaglio,
which takes its cue from
the company’s vast pattern
archives. In a fresh approach,
the collection’s neoclassical
design deliberately varies from
piece to piece, making each
item a unique style statement
— a fitting tribute to form,
function and fashion.
Make the most of your entertaining space with tray
tables that work as a serving tray, cocktail table,
portable catchall, makeshift bar, dining table for one…
