Dekla specializes in Italian kitchens, bathrooms, closets and millwork. They are one of the top interior design firms in Toronto, with extensive experience developing custom design solutions for commercial projects, both domestically and abroad. Their collection of products is composed of internationally renowned manufacturers including Scavolini and LEMA. All of their products are crafted from top-quality materials in state-of-the-art production facilities in Italy.
Dekla approached us to photograph a catalogue of their custom kitchen designs… with a twist. The challenge was to shoot the kitchens of real Dekla clients. The goal was to demonstrate how incredible Dekla’s designs look in the real world, not only the studio showroom.
We loved the idea. There’s nothing more annoying than falling in love with a product that looked great in the showroom only to find out it doesn’t quite work in your home. This is especially true when it comes to a top end kitchen. That said, there are a number of challenges with shooting in someone’s house as compared to a controlled studio environment.
In the end, the results were simply stunning. In fact, some customers were so impressed with the photos of their kitchens that they hired us to come back and shoot the rest of the house!
