French Chic Kitchen

One of the most unusual mood terms shared with us by a client, “I want it to look like we found it in a skip in Paris”. But we liked the idea and our design team set about designing a kitchen with an aesthetic of reclaimed, rustic and vintage.

We used mixed materials for this unique kitchen – solid French pippy oak for the doors and worktops; unfinished angle iron and box steel for framework, and 100% birch ply for our carcasses.

A reclaimed Belfast sink nestled comfortably within the 65mm thick oak worktop and reclaimed brass taps perched above giving a really characterful centrepiece of the kitchen.

A Sub Zero fridge freezer was wrapped in the worksurface and this gave a fixing point for one of several reclaimed task lights.

The room was big enough for an island but in order to allow a more flexible working space, we made the island a bit like a big trolley – on vintage castor wheels, braked, that allow for the unit to be easily rolled around.

A dresser unit with tea drawers sat well between the existing architraves and allowed for an additional working area. Our clients had the luxury of a large larder which meant the kitchen itself could be largely for appliances and food preparation.

While we were there we made some custom wardrobes for the master bedroom.
