The current trends in kitchens

I was just looking through facebook when I saw a friend of mine had posted an article that showed some of the future trends in kitchen design. I wasn't over impressed at first as it all seemed to be the same old stuff we've seen year in. But if you look at it more as 'the current trends' in kitchen design, I think there's some really inspirational stuff here.

The article isn't very long, it's mainly a slideshow, so take a look at it and let me know which one your favorite is.

For me, I love the idea of using more metal in kitchens. I've always thought copper was one of the better looking materials to use in kitchens, but the example given in this article with the cooper hood looks exquisite.
