Founded by two Loughborough University grads in 1989 as a humble handmade furniture shop, Devol has grown into a sizable bespoke kitchen maker. So much so that the company, based in Cotes Mill just outside Loughborough, recently opened a London showroom. “We are getting some top clients, really famous customers, seeing what we have here and placing big orders. Half our customers are based in London, typically places like Shoreditch, Dalston, and Kew,” founder Paul O’Leary told the Leicester Mercury
