ST JOHN’S WOOD, LONDON
Artichoke was asked to design a decorative solution for the bespoke kitchen and staircase in this Georgian villa. A contemporary veneered wall containing a pair of pocket sliding doors was designed in stained ash with black walnut let in to form the shadow gaps between panels. The dresser cabinet, containing crockery and glassware, is made from oak and stained to a Basalt colour to contrast with the wall panels behind. The door stiles are designed to follow the shape of the recessed handles.
The long side board is divided by an oak top with a bowl carved into it. The front edge of the honed marble is mitred with a vertical front of oak that supports it. See Master Bathroom in the same house.
Primary materials: Painted cabinetry, stained ash and oak veneer, Nero Marquina marble.
