With the house build well underway Sheree and Adrian focused on the kitchen. “We knew our curved design ideas would challenge many, but luckily for us there was only one company to work with. We had chosen a Davonport kitchen for our previous home, so knew Richard and the exceptional quality of the workmanship that comes with the name,” says Andrew.
“Curves are one of the things we specialise in and which set us apart,” says Richard Davonport, managing director of Davonport. “Because we are a bespoke company with all the furniture made in our workshop, we really can produce almost anything that a client wants.”
Richard’s stunning design for the kitchen was an island snaking across the room, creating a dramatic centre piece. He cleverly integrated a fully functioning cook’s asset, complete with tepan plate, induction hob, boiling water tap, sink and plenty of storage space below.
“The island is just incredible – I adore it! I really appreciate the well thought out storage too - I hate clutter so being able to store everything away creates a restful look in what is a very busy room,” enthused Sheree.
Additional storage was provided by a run of tall cabinetry in rich walnut with bright metal inlays that contrasted beautifully with the cream painted furniture, adding to the classic contemporary feel of the kitchen. As a final “quirky touch,” Sheree selected chocolate brown, hand-stitched leather-clad handles to add still more individuality and natural materials.
