British kitchen and furniture maker deVOL has recently opened a fifth showroom in the genteel Georgian city of Bath. It occupies part of a grand, 18th-century row of apartments built from honey-colored Bath stone. Basking in natural light and boasting fine period details, the building has “the perfect look and proportions to display deVOL furniture at its very best,” according to Helen Parker, the company’s creative director.
The kitchen design company has taken over several rooms on the ground floor, including the main entrance to the building, which lends the space “a very grand feel.” There are four kitchen displays in total, each of which “flows nicely into the other to give the feeling of being in a home rather than a showroom.”
Below, we’ve identified seven design ideas that will transpose to any home.
