Eurocucina 2010 – day one

As featured in

It is now official-the dominant trend at Eurocucina this year is green and when it comes to colors, think white, off-white, brown/grey and dark brown.

Another view of Riva 1920’s booth and metal cabinets, kitchen manufacturers are all showing environmentally friendly products.

I’m also seeing lots of white kitchens in high-gloss finishes, textured laminates and veneers, as well as white and dark wood combinations. What little color there is seems to be limited to glass kitchens, but most of these are white, too.

Even the stands-or booths-themselves have taken on a “green” or eco-friendly look just to drive the point home.

But so far, I haven’t seen much in terms of new innovation or new breakthrough technology. What I am seeing is lots of motorized doors and drawers, induction cooktops and very sleek appliances. Overall, the kitchens all have very “clean” lines and are even more minimalistic than before.
