Kitchens designed to make living rooms obsolete
Let's talk about kitchen designs and how we use this room, beyond cooking.
A recent ad headline in a Hamptons paper (Dan's paper, NY for those familiar) states "Kitchens Designed to Make Living Rooms Obsolete." The ad also states that "you'll find it's where your family will live... Whether you're cooking or not."
I found this marketing very interesting, and I think most Americans would find this design focus very appealing. But in East Hampton, where this assumably high end designer (don't actually know anything about this company) is located , advertising, and targeting a high end market consisting of more mansions than bungalows, I am surprised by this marketing ploy.
Are we seeing a move towards informality? Even amongst the upper echelons of society?
What's your take?
