We spent a lot of time and thought devising a pot rack that would make our decades of pots easily accessible AND sleek-looking, rather than a weighty mass hanging above our kitchen island. So we were intrigued by two ideas found rummaging through Boffi‘s  “Kitchenology“, pdfs of their latest offerings.

Although totally whimsical and slightly impractical, hanging pots by strings from the ceiling creates quite a beautiful effect (and when clanged together, might double as an instrument).

We love the idea of hanging lovely old baskets or other vessels…

More practical if you have the room is an extra-long, room-spanning kitchen rail. Even a shorter version would look pretty great. The reality: if you want any rack-and-utensil system to look neat and sharp you need to maintain the order the stuff hanging on it.

  1. Those are impressive ideas, especially the last one. It’s a closet in the kitchen! And it looks like it works just as well for pots and pans as the bedroom one does for pants and shirts. I’m definitely keeping this in mind for my future home!
