A Storage System for the Whole Home

Issue 71 · The Modern Kitchen · May 7, 2013

Seattle-based Henrybuilt, maker of custom kitchens, is the creator of the first American kitchen "system." Its combination of finely crafted design with well-designed components (integrated functionality with a clean, modern look) have made the brand a covetable kitchen line. Their latest iteration? The Opencase Storage System that accommodates a multitude of domestic needs beyond the kitchen from pantry, den, to the hall.

Combining system and craft, Henrybuilt has raised the bar on storage solutions. Pricing ranges from $2500 for some single panel configurations to $5000 for panels requiring a number of more complex components. For more on the newly launched line, visit Henrybuilt.
