Yesterday, we featured a black and white colorblocked kitchen inspired by a British Standard design. Here’s a shocker: the same kitchen in bold cobalt blue. Too much? Or just enough?
British Standard (it’s an offshoot of the higher-end kitchen fittings company Plain English) offers “sensible cupboards at sensible prices for people with good taste but modest means. British Standard is a call to arms for British manufacturing and for honest, properly made products. Their modest appearance is matched by their modest price (around £7,000 for an average-sized kitchen, including worktops) because all you pay for is the joinery; there is no bespoke design, deliver, or fitting service; you do that yourself.”
Hmm, when is something like this going to launch in the US? See more at British Standard Kitchen.
