Lockdown has allowed many of us to spend a lot more time in the kitchen recently. Baking and posting your fresh-from-the-oven banana bread on Instagram now seems to be a new national past-time, that is if you can find flour. But is your kitchen just as Instagrammable? If you’ve been lacking some kitchen (or indeed general interiors) inspiration and want some fresh ideas about how to transform your space, we may have just found you some.

These Kitchen Images Will Inspire Your Lockdown Home Makeover

Smallbone of Devizes is opening a brand new 15,000 sq/ft showroom this summer at Brompton Gate in the heart of Knightsbridge to showcase its highly technical kitchen designs, and plenty more besides. You’ll be able to – safely through its ‘by appointment’ only concept – have full access to the space, enjoy a drink at the ground floor bar, and meet their experts to discuss your bespoke project – and of course, raising your banana bread game.

The Mulberry Kitchen

Smallbone’s exciting new multi-sensory retail concept space at Brompton Gate has been designed to offer time and space in abundance for clients in search of distinguished craftsmanship. On the ground floor, set among Samsung’s high-tech display and a curated selection of contemporary art, you’ll find Smallbone’s latest offering: the Icarus collection, which pays homage to human ingenuity and ambition with exquisite natural materials and coherency of concept.

With parabolic curves inspired by the wings of the mythical Icarus, crafted in the legend by his father Daedalus, the collection is crafted in a handsome grey cerused oak with a white bronze treatment. Comprising kitchen islands and standing furniture, hidden rebate handles bring ergonomic ease to the elegant curved doors.
