Talk about dual personalities. This kitchen in Taiwan is all business on one side, and party on the other! Without that bright yellow pipe-and-wood shelf, this kitchen would be fairly boring, but that punch of color makes it stand out in a wonderful way.

This isn't the first time we've seen pipe parts used in the kitchen, but it is the flashiest! It's an unexpected twist on a trendy design element.

Yes, the shelf seems to be most decorative in this case, but imagine it full of pretty dishes and serving pieces! Makes quite the case for open shelving.
