Bread tray kitchen drawers

During the design phase for Allens Lane, the client came across an article in Dwell magazine that featured an apartment in Budapest, which used bread delivery racks as desk shelving. We had been looking for a unique solution for drawers for the kitchen desk that would incorporate a repurposed material. The Budapest bread delivery racks inspired us to search the streets for bread drawers that are typically used in grocery stores. We found a Chinese grocery that would sell us four of the same size. We then used red, yellow and blue spray paint specially designed to adhere to plastic to get the exact colors we wanted. The drawers were the perfect complement to the bread tab art piece also installed in the kitchen. The bread tray drawers are functional and were an inexpensive way to add storage in the kitchen.
