We’ve recently finished another bespoke kitchen for a great client in Bradford on Avon. This one is one of our most innovative to date as it utilises innovative materials, perfectly blends functionality with form and fulfils our clients needs in a very creative way.Our clients live in very beautiful period home, a 19th century former vicarage, in an elevated position overlooking the Wiltshire countryside. After creating their furniture a few years ago, we were asked back to create a kitchen for their extension. One that would perfectly blend functionality with form and fulfil our clients needs in a very creative way.
From the offset, an island was key to their kitchen. While they had a formal dining room, they would generally eat at the kitchen island when not entertaining. As such it needed to be of sufficient size to unite the living and kitchen spaces, provide ample storage and seat up to five people. However, as it would usually just be the couple sitting at it, we didn’t want the island to be too large. The dimensions of the room meant that this was all a bit tricky. As such, after many design options for a shaped breakfast bar, we came up with the idea of an oval oak breakfast bar that could rotate from the island. In its default position it allows two people to sit at it, with plenty of space around for walking past. When rotated 90 degrees, it allows for five people. We fabricated our own rotating system, routered into the underside of the top, and pivoting from a metal rod housed into the Corian island. This in itself was very innovative and something we’ve personally never seen before. The system locks into place and secures to avoid any wobble or movement. The clients were over the moon, as were we.
