210 Design House: Staff Favorites Products for 2023 + 2024 Preview

At 210 Design House, we’re all about making our clients’ dream homes a reality. With the help of some extraordinary products from our partners — from Snaidero’s cool, contemporary kitchens to MisuraEmme’s enviable closet designs — we create spaces that not only meet expectations, they go beyond what our customers even thought was possible. “With our many connections throughout Europe, we can source almost anything, including customized solutions beyond our existing product lines,” says senior designer Alexander Adducci.

While our ultimate goal is always to make our clients’ design goals a reality, our staff does admittedly find favorites among our luxury kitchen, bath, and closet products and furnishings. Keep reading for the 210 staff’s most-coveted designs of 2023 and to find out what 2024 arrivals they’re most excited about!

Innovative Storage Solutions

We pride ourselves on transforming functional areas of the home — kitchens, baths, and closets — into show-stopping spaces, and we achieve that through innovative products that are equally beautiful and practical. Adducci is particularly excited about Snaidero’s Sipario pocket cabinet doors, praising how they handsomely hide appliances and workspaces. Additionally, MisuraEmme’s Palo Alto Wall has captured our attention for its unique features. Together, these innovative products contribute to our mission of creating both stunning and functional spaces in kitchens, baths, and closets.

Both products provide clean lines and timeless solutions with a more minimal aesthetic,” he says. “Palo Alto Wall allows for maximization of storage within a single space. The functional elements are secured to a wall support system instead of requiring vertical partitions placed throughout the space for support.”

Design assistant Grace Radoha also calls Palo Alto Wall a favorite. “The system is a new way to look at closets. It creates an open concept with no visible side panels, making it much easier to see all of your clothing, shoes, and accessories. Instead of feeling tight and cramped like so many closets do, it’s open and airy.”


Function Meets Artistry

In bath and living spaces, 210 also aims to bring high design to necessary elements of the home. Case in point: Noorth’s Touch vanity. “It’s really more of an art piece than a bathroom vanity,” Radoha says. “It can be entirely made of marble, creating a mesmerizing focal point in any bath space.” Adducci agrees, also pointing out the vanity’s other design possibilities: “Not only is it available in stone and quartz finishes, it also comes in wood and a material called Milltek-Solid,” a combination of several natural minerals of various colors and sizes and high-quality polyester resin, which together look like natural stone.

Adducci is also excited about Glas Italia’s Sherazade Patchwork Door. “It’s a functional solution, but it also makes an artistic, sculptural statement,” he says. The door includes eight pattern configurations and multiple glass-insert possibilities. “This offers designers and clients an extensive range of design solutions with glass panels in opaque, translucent, tinted, colored, and textured options.”

New Colors and Textures for 2024

While many new products are coming to 210’s River North showroom in 2024, updates of colors, finishes, and textures have the 210 staff most excited for the new year’s design potential. 

Radoha loves Plain & Fancy’s Taliesan cabinets, available in a multitude of hues. “The Taliesan is a timeless product, and choosing a paint color is an easy way to reflect current design trends,” she says. Similarly, Lisa Wagner, 210 project manager, is looking forward to Snaidero’s new and updated finishes: “Wood veneers, textured and colored melamines, and matte and high-gloss lacquers are going to add new possibilities for our clients.”

Another favorite of Wagner’s is Wall&decò’s WET System, which just won the German Design Award 2024. “I’m excited for the new WET designs to come out,” she says. “Each one seems to be better than the last.”

In the furnishings arena, the 210 staff knows which pieces they’d like to bring home. “Arflex’s Botolo chair has a minimal design that can be dressed up or down depending on the fabric you choose,” Radoha says. “The chair can go anywhere in the home and looks like it belongs there. Wagner, however, is partial to Arflex’s Arcolor sofa: “The curved, organic lines create a beautiful flow and a sense of movement in any space.”
