A Guide to Designing a Creative Kitchen

The past year and a half has seen us all flocking to our kitchens – some of us kicking and screaming, some of us embracing daring new culinary endeavours. Gathering around the kitchen island has, for many, been a point of refuge, offering a sense of grounding and a bit of encouraging conversation. If you’re feeling a little uninspired by that old, familiar kitchen, we’ve got just the ideas for you to spice it up a bit…

 

Modern Dining Table

Atlantic Rectangular Dining Table + Atlantic Bench in ‘Ocean Blue’ with Walnut Lipping

The Atlantic Dining Table makes a fantastic home base in the kitchen. It’s the perfect piece of casual kitchen furniture to plan exciting new recipes or send little helpers to stir and whisk to their hearts’ delight. With its matt veneer top, there’s no need to worry about marking the way one might with a more porous wooden or marble surface. And it looks just as great in its more compact round format!

Casual Kitchen Benches

The Atlantic Bench makes an excellent companion to the Atlantic Dining Table. It’s a lovely piece of informal seating that encourages cooks to cosy up and get collaborative in the kitchen. It also helps to carve out a breakfast nook by creating a sense of division in the space and tucking under the table to allow for ease of movement once everyone has been excused.

 

Modern Dining Chairs

If you’re looking to complement the Atlantic Dining Table with a beautifully simple set of chairs, the Jak Chair is just the thing. Jak is perfectly in keeping with the clean, modern look of the Atlantic set, allowing for added seating at the heads of the table.

 

Kitchen Island Stools

Phoenix Barstool in ‘Bronze’ with upholstered cushion

The Phoenix Barstool is a striking addition to any kitchen island, bringing a contemporary look to the room. The piece was inspired by George Nelson’s wonderfully mod ‘Marshmallow’ sofa. Its legs take the form of three handmade triangular spears, which taper to accentuate its refined silhouette. The piece can be made bespoke with your choice of finishes and sizes so that it perfectly complements your space.

 

Contemporary Pendant Lights

Phoenix Pendants in ‘Bridge Red’

Shed some light on your culinary creations with the Phoenix Pendant light. For a truly personal display, cluster any number of pendants to suit your space in the finish of your choice. The soft glow of this eye-catching contemporary light is sure to bring the best out of your kitchen.

 

Geometric Vases

Galena Vases in ‘Bronze Patina’

The Galena Vase offers a great way to bring a bit of extra life to your kitchen. For a more modern, paired-back look, fill it with a few springs of fresh greenery. Or opt for a more bold, colourful display with a buoyant bouquet of hydrangeas.

 

Drinks Coasters

Coasters in ‘Navy’ and ‘Bronze’

Cooking is hard and sometimes we need a little liquid motivation. Whatever’s in your glass, make sure you’re keeping your countertops in peak condition by slipping a Coaster underneath it. Stacking a few of these around the space will serve as a friendly reminder for guests to do the same – as well as bring some refreshing, modern accents to your kitchen.

Happy cooking!
