Who We Are

PB Kitchen Design (a division of Past Basket Inc.) approaches every design challenge by thinking innovatively and with meticulous attention to detail. Every kitchen or living space we encounter is an opportunity to create a unique environment that speaks to a client’s vision. It’s not about working from templates, but about consistently delivering exceptional ideas.  Yet, to achieve something extraordinary takes more than creative talent – it takes the right attitude.

So we listen, we digest, and we collaborate. Because crafting an extraordinary space demands a team that merges unwavering approachability with unequaled expertise. And that defines the essence of PB Kitchen Design.



Unique & Innovative

Kitchen and Bath Business Magazine

Past Basket created an award winning kitchen for me that looks like it was part of the original house.
