A few weeks back, we took a look at a black-and-white kitchen in a rentable apartment (and “curated lifestyle shop, creative incubator, and design space”) not far from our Manhattan offices, fitted with cabinetry from Montreal-based kitchen company Coquo. (For the original post, see Kitchen of the Week: The Site of Your Next Dinner Party, in New York’s Flower District.) The freestanding, modular black kitchen furniture was among the most pared-back and sophisticated we’d seen, and upon further research we liked the Coquo mantra: “Furniture should last a lifetime and change with your life.”
Today, we’re taking a closer look at the company’s offerings; here are a few of their designs, in situ.

Coquo’s focus on making furniture, rather than the permanent built-ins of traditional kitchens, means the pieces can be moved and used throughout the house, including in living rooms and bathrooms, as needs change. And because the pieces are sold individually, they are suitable for the smallest spaces and apartments as well as larger, more expansive kitchens.
Above L: The tall Volitare Shelving Unit with metal shelves can be used “as a bookcase, cupboard, kitchen pantry cabinet or as a hutch;” from $1,299. Above R: Cabinets in a dark and moody kitchen. Note also the Radix Wall Cabinet with glass doors, for displaying ceramics and glassware; from $1,229.
