The owners of this kitchen and pantry came to us with a very specific brief and the perfect example of true bespoke design. They wanted to create a modern kitchen, with the look and feel of freestanding furniture, in a mid-century style, inspired by Scandinavian kitchens they had seen and loved. They especially liked the idea of dark wood, handle-less cabinetry and some open storage where they could display their collection of crockery. But they didn’t want to forsake modern appliances and convenience.
The kitchen walls and bespoke, canopy extractor cabinetry were tiled in the same metro tiles to create blending. We designed a recess for the large American Fisher Paykel fridge freezer, to stop it seeming too dominant in the room. Other appliances include a boiling water tap from Quooker UK and integrated dishwasher from Miele. The pendant lighting is from Original BTC and vintage look bar stool from Rockett St George. The kitchen features hand carved details on the pull-out chopping boards. The open shelving allows crockery and glassware to be on display, enhancing the Scandinavian look and feel. The co-ordinating pantry was designed to take some of the storage pressure off the kitchen. The pantry also features multi-functional, open shelving and includes storage for wine, crockery and additional appliances.
