Bucks and Spurs , a new Stockholm-based design house, earned international attention earlier this year when their Railway kitchen won the Best Kitchen category in the 2015 Elle Decoration Swedish Design Awards .  The winning kitchen is part of the company's "Railways" modular cabinetry line, which also includes bathroom and closet cabinetry and indoor and outdoor sliding doors. The overall concept is a clean-lined Scandinavian system with a streak of the American West. In each piece of cabinetry, Bucks and Spurs paired rough-hewn oak boards with smoother ones to achieve a look they call "rough ranch."  Photography via Bucks and Spurs and Elle Decoration Sweden .  Above: The Railway components, which hang on a wall-mounted rail, have a Shaker-like flexibility. The rail is the only part of the kitchen that's fixed, which means that cabinets can be moved according to changing needs.  Above L: The entire kitchen system is made in Sweden, including the handmade oak cabinetry, Swedish limestone countertops, and Swedish leather details by  Tarnsjo Tannery . Above R: Sliding wood panels hide and reveal drawers and open storage spaces. Above: Drawers make use of simple box joints. Above L: Oak inset on a diagonal is a nod to railroad ties. Above R: The kitchen styled for Elle Decoration Sweden .    Above: The Railways system began with sliding doors and cabinet frames made by woodworkers in Järna and Småland, Sweden. These frames later developed into the full modular furniture system.  Above: Bucks and Spurs pairs its modular cabinetry system with decorative finds from around the world, including artful embroidery by Brooklyn-based Coral & Tusk , whose aprons are shown here. This wood-and-copper ladder rail is an optional component of the kitchen and bathroom systems.   More kitchen systems from around the world:  Good Küchen: 9 German Kitchen Systems Bella Cucina: 8 Italian Kitchen Systems 5 Storage Ideas to Steal from Berlin Kitchens 15 Storage Ideas to Steal from High-End Kitchen Systems More Stories from Remodelista Appliances for Minimalists: The Muji Toaster Oven and More 5 Favorites: Fuss-Free Ice Cream Makers Design Sleuth: Rope Pendant Lights in a Summer Cottage
