Clerkenwell Design Week

Last week, I popped over to Clerkenwell Design Week. For three days a year, all the local design shops & firms in Clerkenwell throw open their doors to the public, and marquees are erected to showcase furniture makers, designers and brands from across the UK and the world in celebration of all that is Design.

Of the hundreds of beautiful and interesting exhibitors showing their wares, I have picked out a few that I really loved. Today’s focus: Pluck Kitchens.

Pluck Kitchens
The beauty of these kitchens lies in two things. The first is the detailing: the little square cutout handles, the richness of the London plane tree veneer, the perfect stripes of the birch plywood edges.

The second is undoubtably the palette. Using a reduced palette of just 8 colours, and two types of wood, all of which mix and match and complement each other brilliantly. Their website has a number of combinations which they recommend, but you could just as easily make your own.

And my favourite thing about them: they reckon they can pinpoint exactly which tree they’ve used for your kitchen. They aim to work with local tree surgeons where possible: at the moment they source their London plane from a surgeon in South East London.
