Kitchen of the Week: Shaker in the City

July 18, 2019

We are big fans of deVOL kitchens, so we were thrilled when the UK-based bespoke cabinetmaker opened up a New York City outpost earlier this year. Now you can see all four of their cabinet styles up-close at their showroom on Bond Street in Lower Manhattan.

While each line has something to recommend itself, we are perhaps partial to their Real Shaker range, which also happens to be deVOL’s most popular and affordable collection. (Prices for a Real Shaker kitchen start at $20,000, compared to $40,000 for their Classic English look.) This yellow and gray model kitchen in their newest showroom showcases its appeal: clean lines, painted cabinets, natural materials, elegant simplicity.

“This kitchen was designed to show how simple modular Shaker cupboards in standard sizes painted in one of our standard colors can be transformed into an atmospheric and authentic room with color and beautiful things,” says creative director Helen Parker. “[It’s] designed to transport you to a French country kitchen in the height of summer.”

Shaker cabinets, plus paint, add vintage elements, and voilà.

Above: “Cool stone floors, warm umber tones, and collections of items that evoke a cook’s kitchen,” says Parker, on the critical elements that make up this space. The cabinets are painted “Lead” (from deVOL’s own collection of Shaker colors); the walls Farrow & Ball India Yellow; the trim Farrow & Ball Off-White.
Parker sourced many of the decorative touches—confit jars, oil paintings, Spanish baskets—from flea markets and antique fairs. The integrated stove is by Wolf. The countertops are Belgian Blue Limestone.

The floor is made up of Brushed Charcoal Limestone Tiles by Floors of Stone (they can deliver to the US but only take payment in GBP; it is £46 per square meter).

The Single Fluted Sink is from deVOL, as is all the hardware, including the Aged Brass Mayan Taps by Perrin & Rowe and the Hanging Rail. A partition featuring heritage glass separates the Real Shaker Kitchen from another kitchen just beyond it.

The partition was treated with a unique crackle glaze to give it a beautifully aged appearance.
