Kitchen of the Week: A Rustic-Luxe London Galley by deVol

January 28, 2016

The galley is one of the most compact and high-functioning kitchen configurations. But too many end up looking like austere cooking factories. Here’s a wood-paneled version in London that presents a refreshing urban-rustic alternative to today’s chilly designs.

Installed in a five-story Regency townhouse—as part of a remodel in which the kitchen was relocated—the design is from UK kitchen maker deVol. It’s part of the company’s Sebastian Cox line, which we’ve been admiring since it made its debut last year: See the first version of the kitchen here.

Above: The cabinets are made of British-grown sustainable woods: Birch plywood frames are fronted by cabinet doors of band-sawed solid beech that’s stained (rather than painted) an inky blue-black. The flooring is a maplike confluence of concrete and oak.

Above: The hanging lights were a DIY project: LED Filament Bulbs and Bakelite Bulb Holders are paired with Fabric Lighting Cable, all from Dowsing & Reynolds. The Crittall window echoes the lines of the sash window at the back of the space that fills the room with light.

Above: Cox used oak counters in his prototype; the owners of this kitchen opted to dress up the timber cabinets with honed Carrara marble worktops.

Above: The cabinets are detailed with copper pulls and copper-lined finger holes. Note the way the wood grain shows through the dark stain, lending the space great texture. Says Cox: “The whole kitchen is designed to look like it breathes.”
