Characterised by a straightforward, stripped-back design and functional fashion, Utilitarian style is something that's bang on trend right now. Emerging alongside is the pegboard, which perfectly encapsulates the function-over-form practicality at the heart of the utilitarian mindset. Based on a refreshing simplicity that incorporates a series of simple, streamlined wooden accessories, the pegboard takes design work back to its roots, focusing on efficiency over elaborate detail.
But looking beyond the hype, fads, and this week's popular hashtags, is the pegboard here to stay? We definitely think so! But if you still need some convincing, Block Design will tell you why the pegboard style is far more than just a fleeting craze...
What makes pegboards so unique is the practical aesthetic that abandons all fussy and fancy design work in favour of a stripped back look. What you're left with is a completely functional skeleton - a blank canvas where all the accessories you hang slowly begin to construct a personal style statement of your own.
From the living room, to the kitchen, the office and the hallway - the pegboards fit into any room of the home and can be used pretty much anywhere. If also doesn't matter how contemporary or traditional your home is, you can find a pegboard colour or design that will compliment your four walls brilliantly.
