Kitchen Designer Of The Year


In 2008 Simon Elliot along with Mike Fowler were finalists in the Kitchen Designer of the Year Awards for their work on a kitchen. Originally Halstock had only been commission to design freestanding furniture, however the brief was extended to the full design of a new kitchen on the strength of our design work on the freestanding package.

The clients wanted a crisp, handle less design whilst ensuring that the kitchen retained a warm family feel without becoming too stark. The kitchen showcases Halstock’s skill in bespoke veneering and curved work, with crowned European oak flowing smoothly across the faces of the cabinets, highlighted further with contrasting painted bands that break the doors into horizontal strips.
