If you are looking for similar ideas for your pantry or designing a new larder, let our five favorite designs inspire you. They embody the luxury and style of a living room.


The Pickling Cabinet by Lanserrin is a bespoke larder that takes design cues directly from living room furniture.

The small shelves are made from American walnut and patinated brass and feature sliding screens with slats that reveal the interior lighting. They create a stunning display and storage space for pickling jars.

Pickled foods may not be everyone’s pantry essential, but we love how the design highlights the contents and makes each jar stand out.

STAY Ahead of the Curve

Curves and arches will be one of the most popular interior design themes in 2023. It only takes one turn or angle to transform a simple storage unit into an eye-catching feature.

Straight, sleek lines usually define the kitchen. These soft silhouettes, such as a round island or a gorgeous larder entrance, can make your kitchen more inviting and calming.

Re-Think A Traditional Larger Design

Many of us imagine a larder as a large closet or cabinet or even a small, separate space similar to a pantry. However, in modern-day kitchens, anything is possible.

This beautiful kitchen, designed by Poggenpohl, Chelsea, is full of clever storage and display areas. It’s perfect for storing all kinds of items, including food and kitchenware.

The use of luxurious materials, such as glass doors, shelves, and warm wooden bases, creates an elegant display cabinet. Internal lights add the finishing touch.

The hanging shelf, which is proudly displayed above the island, also creates a unique storage platform. Natasha Wegrzyn is the studio manager of Poggenpohl in Chelsea. She comments, “This bespoke shelf has the same smoked-oak veneer as the furniture while LED strips provide vital task lighting.”

Are you worried that the reeded-glass trend in kitchens is a fad? The Danish brand Vipp assures us that the material’s many benefits will ensure its long-lasting appeal and shows us how it can elegantly enhance your larder.

Vipp CEO Kasper Egelund says that ‘Fluted and reeded cabinet doors instantly elevate a scheme by adding a real sense of refinement.

In darker kitchens, the fluted texture gives a feeling of airiness. The ribbed surface allows for a semitransparent view.

What makes a good LARGER?

The larder should have enough space for and meet your needs.

If you know exactly what you want to do with this space, you can create a design that is more functional and personalized.

What is the difference between a larger pantry and a smaller one?

When discussing the design of a modern kitchen, the terms “larder” and “pantry” are often used interchangeably. However, there are subtle differences that you should be aware of.

A pantry is typically much larger than a larder, and it is usually a separate space that is either attached to or near the kitchen. Larders are generally large, cool cabinets integrated into the kitchen. They tend to be smaller.

You can use both to store dried products, tins, and jars as, well as kitchenware.

A larder’s purpose is to provide a practical storage space in which to keep food and kitchen objects and accessories neat. However, our exploration of luxurious larders in the living room shows that this space is an opportunity to create a beautiful design feature in the home, helping your kitchen look and feel more attractive, decorative, and unique.
