THE LEPIC KITCHEN - SCHIFFINI
AUGUST 17TH 2018


Embracing a return of food and cookery to the kitchen, the new Lepic kitchen by leading British designer Jasper Morrison marks a move away from minimalism and instead focuses on practicality and the pleasures of cooking and eating.

A seemingly simple design, the kitchen draws upon Morrison’s creative philosophy of the ‘super normal’, in which every element is carefully considered and refined.  Using a variety of materials and compositions, the Lepic is rich in detail and meets all the complex requirements of a modern, lived-in kitchen.



It combines natural materials such as wood with the latest innovative technology, creating a space which is entirely practical and durable, but which retains a warm and organic feel.  Cabinet doors are finished with veneered natural oak and Fenix NMT, a nanotechnological material which is opaque, soft to the touch and extremely hard-wearing.  The worktops are made from wood fibre and are plated on both sides in Fenix NMT.



Open storage provides easy access to pots, pans and food stuffs whilst the stainless-steel back panel, featuring machined grooves, allows the kitchen to be customised with a wide range of visible accessories and utensils. The handles, available in solid natural oak or cast-iron effect painted metal, are deliberately prominent, designed to hold dish cloths while the stainless-steel hood, in a satin finish, is intended for additional storage use.  The island offers a generous space for food preparation and entertaining.



The fusion of Morrison’s refined design ethos and Schiffini’s modular hallmark style results in a lived-in kitchen with atmosphere and the joy of cookery at its heart. 

The Lepic kitchen comes in three finishes: Malè White, Ingo Black and Beige Luxor. 

Schiffini kitchens start from £20,000. 
STEP UP THE GLAMOUR
AUGUST 9TH 2018



The latest additions to 
Drummonds’ bathroom lighting collection take their signature classic luxe to new heights.

As with all Drummonds’ brassware, every piece is entirely handmade, with the brass cast in the traditional lost wax process and the glass handblown. The brass is then finished to order, with nine options ranging from unlacquered brass to polished nickel and antique bronze.

Part of the Martin Brudnizki for Drummonds Collection, the impressive new Derwent Flush Ceiling Light is a clever fusion of contemporary and vintage style. 170mm high x 300mm wide, it’s large enough to be a central light in a small bathroom and also looks great used in multiples to light larger spaces.

Also new are cut glass shades for Drummonds’ Dalby (shown below, right) and Chessleton (shown below, left) wall lights. Handmade glass is cut by hand in a diamond pattern which gives the lights a distinctly Deco feel.  

EXPERIMENT WITH COLOUR
AUGUST 8TH 2018



It can be daunting to move away from a neutral palette and embrace the vivid hues and bold tones that are now so on trend…  

One of the easiest ways to add colour is 
Felt’s beautiful handmade shyrdak rugs, which come bold, bright and beautiful in all shapes and sizes, from runners to room-size or round rugs.  From the dazzlingly bright to subtly muted tones, Felt rugs offer a wide range of decorative possibilities for both contemporary and traditional interiors. Perfect for both floors and walls, a wide selection is always available from stock and customers can also commission bespoke rugs.

NEW - ANNIKA BASIN

London Basin Company’s richly decorated porcelain basins make perfect accent pieces for bathrooms and cloakrooms. Interior designer Anna Callis, founder of the company, draws inspiration from her travels, creating her own modern designs and patterns.

Available to buy online, London Basin Company offers a wide variety of designs.  Every basin is a one-off, hand finished and generously sized; with dimensions running between 39.7 and 45cm in diameter and 14 to 16.2cm in height.

NEW FOR OLD - MARTIN MOORE
AUGUST 2ND 2018



A run-down Victorian villa in Oxfordshire was demolished to make way for a brand-new house.  It retained the generous proportions of the original building, but with much larger areas of glass and a purpose-designed footprint, it is the perfect modern home for a couple and their three teenage children.

The clients came to 
Martin Moore through a friend’s recommendation and the kitchen design started while the house was still in the planning phase. This enabled the designer, Alex Hughes of Martin Moore’s Amersham showroom, to work with the architects and builders right from the beginning, aligning all the services and amenities.  The overall concept was definitely to ‘think big’.  Everything in this kitchen is on a grand scale and the design grew outwards from the central focus of one of the largest islands which Martin Moore have ever made.



Another must-have was the Aga.  Moving to the new house meant leaving a much-loved Aga behind, but there was the cheering prospect of a brand new one at the heart of the new kitchen. Situated just opposite the Aga, the sizeable central island is the multi-purpose heart of the room; as much a social hub for the family as a prepping area and laying out space.  A steam oven faces the Aga, creating a cooking zone, and a prep sink makes a practical addition to the island’s functionality, as does a deep fridge drawer facing the main sink.

The clients’ original brief actually called for two islands; the second being for a teenage daughter who loves to bake and needed a working zone of her own.  A second fixed island proved impractical in the final design, but was cleverly replaced by a Martin Moore Cook’s Table.  A large freestanding dresser adjacent to both the cooking zone and dining area holds the majority of the everyday china, glass and cutlery.



Although this is such a large kitchen, its ergonomics and functionality have been very carefully planned.  Because every Martin Moore kitchen is entirely designed and handbuilt as a one-off, every element of the space and the clients’ needs can be given due recognition.  Alex visited the clients in their old house and together they measured the existing shelving and drawer capacity, plus contents, and estimated exactly how much space the new kitchen should provide and how it would be organised.  They also discussed how the clients liked to shop (often, for fresh food) and cook and tailored the larder, fridge and freezer space accordingly.

Clever, purpose-designed, storage abounds, including deep drawers on either side of the Aga, which conceal internal drawers with special dividers for a knife block and utensils.  More vertical dividers under the prep sink provide dedicated storage for chopping boards and Aga trays. 



The clients had already chosen the fabrics for their blinds and upholstery, so the kitchen was handpainted in complementary colours, taking a palette of warm neutrals through the whole space from the working zones into the family dining and sitting room areas beyond. This unity creates a calm atmosphere with the colours changing subtly in response to the natural daylight which floods the room.



The kitchen also has a spacious walk-in pantry with traditional cool-shelves in Carrara marble. The long open shelves above the worktop provide storage for oils, preserves and dry ingredients, whilst the shelves below hold big bowls, party platters and large pieces of cookware. Wicker baskets under the sink provide root vegetable storage.

A ROOM FOR ALL SEASONS - THE CAULFIELD COMPANY
JULY 18TH 2018



As nights draw in and the temperature drops, traditional glass buildings become less welcoming to spend time in.  But technology has changed all this and the high-tech, intelligent glass buildings from 
The Caulfield Company can be enjoyed all year round. State of the art thermal performance, automated shading and temperature control are operated through built-in weather stations for perfect four-season climate control. 

This is tried and tested technology, widely used in commercial buildings and now being applied to domestic projects from garden room extensions to modern conservatories and freestanding glass pavilions.



At the heart of The Caulfield Company’s designs are pioneering roof and door systems built for The Caulfield Company by the same specialist German company which fabricates for architects such as Norman Foster. These offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values (up to Passivhaus requirements) but also the ability to create spectacular modern structures.







Full Project Service: From planning, design and build to interior finishes and fittings

'BLUETTA' BOOKMATCHING WITH PORCELAIN
JULY 11TH 2018



A classic stonemasonry technique, bookmatched marble has become a key trend in today’s interiors.  Using natural marble slabs to create geometric feature floors and walls is the height of luxury for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms.

Now marble experts 
Lapicida have launched a far simpler, less expensive way to get the look.  Their amazing new ‘Bluetta’ porcelain offers a really authentic alternative to bookmatched marble, making it a great choice where budgets are limited or marble slabs would be too thick or heavy.  It is suitable for interior and exterior walls.

Light, strong and just 10mm thick, Bluetta’s extra-large tiles measure 2400mm x 1200mm each and are used in pairs to create the bookmatched effect shown here.  Easy to handle and straightforward to install they cost £142.80 per square metre (inc VAT).

COUNTRY HOUSE STYLE - DRUMMONDS
JULY 3RD 2018



Designed by Vanessa Van Reyk, this en-suite master bathroom occupies a light-flooded corner of what appears to be a Georgian mansion but is in fact a new-build.  From the panelling to the flooring, every detail has been carefully observed, to create a space looking, as the designer says, “like a striking alteration rather than a completely new design”.

On the same basis, she sourced all the grand bathroomware from 
Drummonds, citing its designs as “classic, simple, elegant and timeless”.  With the WC and shower tucked discreetly out of sight, the centrepiece of the room is the imposing ‘Wye’ cast iron bath with its polished metal exterior.  This silver metal theme is echoed in the tall towel radiator and the brassware, from the taps and showerhead to the legs of the magnificent Lowther double vanity basin.  Arabescato marble and handblown glass light fittings form yet more visual bridges between period and contemporary style.



Drummonds design and manufacture their own bathroomware using traditional techniques and materials, from cast iron to china clay and solid brass.  Refined and authentic, their pieces lend presence to both period and modern settings.

Drummonds’ product details:
 


All brassware and accessories are in a chrome finish.

Topanga is printed in the USA using eco-friendly inks and paper and is 76cm wide.

THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN
JUNE 12TH 2018
 



Centuries away from the traditional conservatory, a completely new generation of glass buildings make architecturally exciting additions to our houses and gardens - and can also change the way we live.


The Caulfield Company’s intelligent glass buildings blur the boundaries between inside and out through contemporary architecture, advanced engineering and sophisticated climate control.  They are perfectly in tune with one of the biggest trends in modern living… the outdoor kitchen, which has evolved from a simple barbeque into a completely new indoor/outdoor living space with a fully equipped kitchen.

Freestanding or built as an extension, The Caulfield Company’s Winter Garden concept is a bespoke design that can be built for use as anything from a sitting room, party zone or kitchen/dining room to a home office or pool house.  Ultra-tall bi-fold doors open to the garden on all sides, whilst electronically-controlled awnings give shade when needed to keep the building at a perfect temperature.  On cooler days, with the doors partly or completely closed, the advanced glass technology (insulated to Passivhaus requirements) and climate control systems maintain the interior at the same level of year-round comfort.  This is a real room, with no compromises made for its garden location. 

At the heart of these custom designed buildings are pioneering roof and door systems built for The Caulfield Company by Solarlux, the specialist German company which fabricates for architects such as Norman Foster.  Technically these systems offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values but also the ability to create spectacular structures including designs where the doors fold entirely away, leaving no beams or columns to interrupt garden sightlines.   

The Caulfield Company handles projects right through from planning permission to design, build and interior finishes. It’s interior design service includes bespoke joinery made in its own workshops, integrated entertainment systems, timber and stone floors and contemporary furniture.  Mark Caulfield and his team of architects and craftsmen undertake projects all over the world.

THE ASHBURN
JUNE 7TH 2018



The new ‘Ashburn’ cast iron bath is a compact freestanding roll top, based on 18th Century ‘bateau’ bath designs. 

A great fit for smaller spaces, it offers all the comforts of a classic double ended design, with traditional ball & claw feet making it every bit as grand as its larger cousins in Drummonds’ cast iron bath collection.

It takes Drummonds several weeks to make a single bath; a traditional process involving casting the raw metal, shot-blasting and enamelling with the lengthy dry-frit process which gives a snow white, incredibly durable enamel surface.



Dimensions: L1500 x W730 x H630mm

Finishes:  To order, with four bespoke finish options; painted, polished (as shown here), primed or raw metal. 

MARTIN MOORE - NEW MUSWELL HILL SHOWROOM
JUNE 6TH 2018



Martin Moore’s new Muswell Hill showroom has a fresh, modern feel which is perfectly in tune with its urban location. 

Effortlessly bridging classic and contemporary, the refined detailing in their furniture sets strong horizontals and verticals against a palette of warm neutrals. New emphasis is placed on materials, texture and the considered placement of colour, with retro/modern decorative elements including ribbed glass, smoked mirror glass and soft velvets in jewel colours.  Metals too are restrained: Honed, brushed, gleaming with luxury but never ostentatious. 

Kitchens are not just about the way things work and the ergonomics of efficiency.  They are also about the way we want them to look and feel.  There is sensory delight in these designs, creating great spaces to spend time alone or surrounded by friends and family.  Every Martin Moore kitchen is individually designed and built to order, producing highly functional spaces with the generous authenticity of real furniture and real craftsmanship.

 



The New Deco Kitchen




The New Deco Kitchen draws inspiration from the architects and craftsmen of the 1930s, but everything about this design is innovative; from ‘floating’ freestanding pieces to clever shadow-lines in the cabinetry.  The concept also focuses on the use of feature materials, including book-matched marble, plain and decorative limestone, metallics and veneered timbers. 

Throughout this highly sophisticated kitchen, texture offers both visual and tactile pleasure.  Mixed metals too, from brushed brass to stainless steel, bring yet another level of interest when set against the palette of simple neutrals.



The English Kitchen



Inspired by the neo-classical architect Inigo Jones, this concept derives from the classic proportions and features of English period furniture.

Muswell Hill sees Martin Moore pushing this much-loved design even further, bringing in modern elements such as plain, white metro tiles, ribbed glass in cupboard doors and, in the dining area, lush velvet banquettes framing a Martin Moore smoked glass and oak table. Specially commissioned glass pendant lights bring pops of rich colour.



The New Classic Kitchen



The New Classic Kitchen has long provenance in Martin Moore’s history and carries a sense of tradition and permanence.  

It’s a grand kitchen, but a thoroughly modern one too, with period proportions refined and adapted to embrace modern technology and zoning.  This includes the spacious walk-in larder which provides ambient storage but could also be designed as a wine store or cold room.



The Architectural Kitchen 



Combining English Oak with handpainted furniture, the Architectural Kitchen has notably long elevations and rows of overhead lockers.   

As with all Martin Moore designs, this is real furniture, designed and built to order. The panelling of the doors requires exceptional craftsmanship in its construction - especially when highlighted with chrome inlays, as in the Muswell Hill showroom.  These bring yet another level of subtle glamour to this collection.



Martin Moore, who celebrate their 43rd anniversary this year, were one of the very first handmade kitchen companies.  In the early days, they built their kitchens from reclaimed timbers, but soon began to develop their own hallmark style of classic, timeless, English furniture, designed and made to order with a quality which transcends fashion. 

Still family run, Martin Moore work across the UK and Europe, designing and building bespoke wooden kitchens, utility rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, dressing rooms and freestanding furniture.

Everything is solidly, traditionally, custom-built in Martin Moore’s Yorkshire workshops and they undertake the entire installation, including fitting, painting and worktops.  They have their own stone company, Martin Moore Stone, and mix their own paints.  This end-to-end approach allows Martin Moore to install rapidly and efficiently… and to give a lifetime guarantee.

NEW - ILLUSION PORCELAIN FROM LAPICIDA
MAY 8TH 2018

Illusion Porcelain in White 

Lapicida’s new Illusion porcelain floor and wall tiles are an amazing new material which perfectly captures the authentic look and texture of natural limestone.  

Taking realism to a whole new level, the random patterns of shells, veins and mineral nuances which make natural stone so intriguing have been recreated in both look and feel… making it almost impossible to distinguish from the real thing.  

Made using the latest high-resolution porcelain technology, Illusion offers the advantage of being much stronger than natural stone. This makes it suitable for a wider range of locations, especially as it is easy to install, stable, non-porous and extremely hardwearing. 

Illusion porcelain tiles are designed to be used on their own or in conjunction with natural stone.  Entirely frost-proof, they can also be used on exterior walls and terraces, making them ideal for getting the ‘inside/outside’ look of a single surface flowing through from the house into the garden.

and a choice of tile sizes (all 14mm thick):
