Shopping Trip: Fresh Off the Block—Shelving Solutions for the Kitchen from Viola Park
Innovative storage solutions are always welcome in the kitchen, a room in the house that's more often than not used as a gathering place as well as a cuisine. Seattle-based Viola Park (Downtown, 997 Western Ave; 206.467.5524) fashions affordable, modern kitchens for the discerning homeowner with material options such as bamboo, pigmented lacquer, and natural woods. Fresh off the block is their Backsplash Shelf ($125 per linear foot), a five inch powder-coated steel shelf to openly organize and store your goods, plus an optional integrated knife block available in walnut, white oak, or bamboo. Keep an eye out later in the year for additional pieces to add to the shelf, including racks for spices, oils and even covered storage.
