Modern Parisian Kitchen by Obumex

Belgian-based company, Obumex, prides itself on creating luxury kitchens that act as a center point in a home, establishing a design tone that champions ‘the felt’ experience with elements that work collaboratively to create a certain mood and atmosphere, where the brief for this kitchen was to create a chic and softened environment – a space inspired by modern Parisian kitchen styles. Stepping away from hard-edged interior design, Obumex designer, Eline Depoorter, focused on rounded elements and curved outlines, smoothing arches and door frames and fitting counters with obround shapes.
The natural breccia viola marble is a completely bespoke feature in more ways than one, too. Special care and attention went into sourcing large blocks of the stone which are all 6cm thick, with as few veins in the stone as possible. Breccia viola marble is known for its creamy white base and striking violet-grey veining, so the stone was sand-blasted to achieve lighter, more ethereal tones of cream, caramel, and silvered lilac, creating a dreamy backdrop that also better diffuses the natural light.
Tall cabinets with detailed door frames were coated in a high-gloss paint for a refined reflective finish, while smaller cabinets were covered with the Obumex Metal Finish, an in-house bronze lacquer with a gunmetal look, providing a contrast to the delicate hues of the marble and other light refracting materials. Note that the marble worktop counter flows into a marble frame for a cream boucle sofa, itself partnered with a sculptural table carved from vintage wood by Ghent-based architect and designer Benoit Viaene. More than just a kitchen, this is a place of permanence and comfort, designed to be breezy, easily maintained, and impeccably well turned out –the perfect Parisian dress code.
