This kitchen is not the show off kind, it’s the quiet shy type that always wins the affections of everyone with its endearing style. #deVOLKitchens

The St. John's Square Townhouse was always going to be a little different to other deVOL showrooms because its architecture and location was different. We had grown to love East End properties and the more opulent, rich and atmospheric feel they conjure up. Trips to Malplaquet House in Mile End, Fournier Street and Dennis Severs' House in Spitalfields and The Zetter Townhouse just across the square, all gave a vision and inspiration for the decoration of our new townhouse. As always, @hapdesigns worked her enviable designing and styling magic and created a room that surprises and delights everyone who wanders upstairs. #deVOLKitchens

English beech is a beautiful native timber that we grow in abundance in the UK but is rarely used in furniture manufacture. Beech has had some bad press, mostly as it is associated with the steamed imported timber used to make bland worktops, but here we've used it in its natural form where it displays a variety of colours and grain patterns. The timber in our Sebastian Cox Kitchen has been passed through a bandsaw to give it an amazing tactile finish - it's almost impossible to stop yourself from running your hand across the cabinets. #deVOLKitchens .

    So many beautiful things…
    Back in the day, the kitchen was the only heated room in a house. The fire would never go out, and many traditional dishes were developed to basically keep cooking for days (cassoulet, for example). So, in regular houses (not mansions with servants), the kitchen would have a table, both for preparing food, sewing and doing other work, and also for eating where it was warm.
    The chaudron (cauldron!) would hang from chain on a notched hook, called a crémaillère, which allowed the cook to raise or lower the pot for faster or slower cooking. Even today, a housewarming party is called la pendaison de crémaillère–the hanging of the crémaillère.
    In the big kitchen of one of our apartments (with a fireplace big enough to stand in, the iron back plate depicting Bacchus), there’s a built-in cupboard called a confiturier, where the family would store pots of jams and preserves. You just don’t tear out stuff like that.

      Thank you for this! I am adding it into the body of the post to make it better. I am obsessed with those French stoneware jars for confitures with their crazing, aged appearance, and pleasing lettering. 🙂

    I grew up in England where I have fond memories of our kitchen. A very large farm table, quarry tiled floor and to heat the house (we had no central heating) was a huge Rayburn which was kept going by coke (coal). The Rayburn is similar to an Aga. The warmth from that big iron stove was so comforting coming home from school doing homework and having tea around that table. Usually dinner was prepared and in the oven. The favorite spot for our black Labrador was snuggled again the warmth of that stove. Such happy memories.

      Oh, what a lovely picture you have painted for us of the warmth and heart of your family home, friend! What comfort and joy such memories must bring, and I thank you for sharing them with us. What if we all began the design of every home with this one spot in the kitchen – a family table near the stove – and everything flowed out from that radiant “heart?”
