When we looked closely at this photo of Martino Gamper and Francis Upritchard’s kitchen, we realized that many of the walls were clad entirely of painted pegboard for a rather whimsical polka dot effect that is also very practical. Although discrete rectangles of pegboard is commonly used in kitchens and workspaces (think Julia Child), we realized we have rarely seen it to clad entire walls, as a design element unto itself.

Gamper seems to love the stuff, using it in kitchens and workspaces…
