The Family Friendly Kitchen, Brit Style

Issue 74 · The Kids Are All Right · May 31, 2013

What is it with the Brits and bespoke kitchens?  We've just come across deVOL Kitchens, an East Midland outfit founded in 1989 by two design graduates from Loughborough University, Philip deVries and Paul O’Leary (the name is an amalgamation of their initials).  We're taken with their kitchen cabinetry and laundry offerings inspired by simple Georgian and Victorian furniture from Ireland, England, and Wales with a dash of Quaker and Scandinavian influence added for good measure. Here's a roundup of some of their offerings.
