The brief for this project was to create a cottage kitchen with a contemporary feel. The clients wanted their kitchen to be at the very heart of their home. It was important our design looked great and worked within the style of their home but also that its layout and design allowed it to fulfil its role as a sociable area for family and friends to relax in.
Elm was chosen as the dominant material with walnut used for the handles and detailing. The focal point of this contemporary kitchen design is the large, gently curving island with integrated breakfast bar in solid elm. The beautiful figuring in the elm, highlighted by the oil finish, has attracted much attention. The hand shaped bowl in the top gives a place to put anything from fruit to car keys.
