Last spring we featured English woodworker Sebastian Cox’s “urban rustic” design for deVol, the UK bespoke kitchen company. Here’s the first domestic installation of the kitchen in an “industrial-style, large and very light space near Exmouth Market,” according to deVol founder Paul O’Leary. “This design brings a bit of woodland into the city, with some style, using British grown (and often overlooked) sustainable timbers, a mix of natural colors, inky blue-black dye, and a dash of copper.” 

The Sebastian Cox kitchen range by deVol is handmade in their Leicestershire workshop, with prices starting at £15,000 ($22,900).

Above: “Materials include sustainable timbers, a mix of natural colors, inky blue-black dyed cabinetry, and a dash of copper,” O’Leary says.

Above: A German Biergarten Table serves as dining table.

Above: “The simple run includes a cooker, sink, dishwasher, and plenty of storage,” O’Leary says. Plus windows overlooking the garden.

Above: “The Smeg fridge is always a good idea, and paired with the pantry it looks uncomplicated, practical, and so simple,” O’Leary says.

Above: Steel support beams are painted black and integrated into the design.

Above: The first glazed glass pantry cupboard has slender beech panels, small copper knobs, and a woven panel.
