A modern dresser, in solid walnut, for this modern but classic home.
This kitchen was designed around the idea of a ‘modern dresser’. We love rework and renew traditional kitchen typologies and the dresser, as a piece of kitchen furniture, seemed ripe for the challenge.
With the client's love of dark timber, solid walnut was a great choice. Our first move was to float the piece off the floor, which increased the perception of space in the room. It’s a great feature that helps to avoided the bulkiness from which some kitchens suffer. A reading seat was incorporated, complete with Anglepoise lamp, with a backrest lined in solid hardwood.
Walnut was used for all the feature elements in the kitchen, including a floating bookcase and lined entrance way. The drawers and cabinetry, in contrast to the walnut, were finished in a crisp, clean, block grey. A contemporary, white Aga finished the design.
