We are specialists in beautiful bespoke kitchen design. We call on more than 30 years of experience to deliver kitchen design services to a select group of clients in stunning period houses across the country.
Every project we take on is entirely unique and uses only the finest quality materials to create kitchens and homes that are liveable, distinctive and rich in character.
Delivering truly bespoke kitchen design services gives Artichoke’s design team tremendous freedom to design in any style and to use any material and finish. We are not limited by set formats and ranges and this freedom allows us to take a unique approach to designing kitchens for our clients.
It allows us to carefully consider the architecture and to design in a way that compliments it – our traditionally made kitchens fit perfectly in the houses they service and with the lifestyle and taste of the people who live in them.
More than any other room, the kitchen has been blown about on the winds of change. Where a drawing room or a library fulfills the same purpose today as it did two centuries ago, the kitchen’s role has changed almost entirely.
In fact, in larger houses the kitchen only made its way upstairs from the basement in the Georgian era. And long after its arrival on the ground floor, it remained a strictly functional room, occasionally bestowed a visit by the lady of the house, but essentially a staff quarter. And usually tucked away in the dark at the back of the house.
Our bespoke kitchen design establishes exquisite, richly detailed and architecturally sympathetic kitchens at the heart of busy households. Because period houses weren’t planned with modern life in mind, our kitchen design services begin with careful and creative thinking about how best to re-organise the internal architecture of a house.
By being close to our clients we learn the lives they dream of living, and design kitchens to make those dreams a reality.
We made our name as a bespoke kitchen design company and we are enormously proud of our work in England, in Europe and in the United States.
We have designed and made kitchens for Georgian hunting lodges, London townhouses, Tuscan villas and Queen Anne country houses.
Every Artichoke kitchen is designed and built not only as a high-functioning hub for a busy household but also as an authentic, accurate addition to a house. They are made to last for centuries.
