Three Styles, One Showroom
La Source Showroom in Bluffton, S.C., was opened in a design-driven market to cater to all types of clients and budgets. Owner and designer Amy Dickson set out to create essentially one kitchen space with three different styles in just 400 square feet.
“I had a very clear vision for the space,” said Dickson. “My goal was to have three displays that represented very different design styles – contemporary, transitional and old world. I designed them to function as separate displays and yet be unified as one space.”
This modern side of the kitchen uses European-style cabinetry and an induction range for a streamlined look.
Across the way, the transitional cabinetry combines dark panels and integrated appliances to create a combination rustic/industrial feel.
The traditional area, which is perpendicular to both the modern and transitional designs, boasts stone tiles, a La Cornue range and more ornate cabinetry.
To compensate for the lack of square footage, every inch of available space was utilized. This included incorporating products and features inside or over displays, such as lighting fixtures and faucets.
Neutrals were key to the successful blending of three very different genres. The hardwood floors throughout and the white trim around the displays help unify the space.
