Pots... and pan drawers
Traditional cabinetry showcases our client's bold geometric creations.
Our client, the maker of JudPots, allows his work to speak for itself.
Pieces are bold, sculptural and of the moment; inspired by the bright geometric shapes of LA’s land and cityscapes, alongside a strong brutalist, sci-fi influence. Each JudPot is a one-off; individually designed, handmade and finished in a wonderfully vibrant colour palette.
Turners Barn exudes an eclectic retro interior, full of characterful collectables and individual objet d’art (including a wonderful haul of JudPots). The JudPots studio, for example, is a stepped broken-plan space, with a glazed face letting in plenty of natural light. A vaulted ceiling supports a half-floor mezzanine, accessed by a spiral staircase. In the centre sits a huge worktable – the place where each JudPot starts its life!
Having put their stamp on the rest of their home, room by room, our clients were ready to execute their long-planned kitchen plans, moving away from the glossy, slab-fronted kitchen they had inherited and replacing it with traditional handmade cabinetry. The aim was to create a bespoke hub at the centre of their home; less mid-century in style than other spaces, to be more in keeping with the chunky timber apertures and exposed frame which already characterised the space. Bringing their own design expertise to the table through a series of images, and with a clear idea of how they needed the space to function, their brief was for classic in-frame cabinetry.
The Barr Kitchens studio team embraced the breadth of the commission. As well as full bespoke cabinetry design and manufacture, electricals, flooring, utility, tiling and plumbing also needed to be updated. Trusted suppliers such as Artisans of Devizes (natural limestone flooring) and Caesarstone (marbled quartz worktops) were key to the project’s success. Likewise, ironmongery from Armac Martin, taps by Perrin & Rowe and brass lighting and sockets by Corston were key to the look and feel of the finished project. Also sourced for quality, longevity and functionality were Meile appliances, including a state-of-the-art downdraft hob, and Fisher & Paykel refrigeration.
Shaker-style cabinetry wrapping the periphery of the space is hand-painted in Farrow & Ball’s Wevet, with a bold statement block of Stiffkey Blue adorning the island. The larder pantry cupboard features inset lighting, with a marbled quartz breakfast bar and full-height upstand. The central island is characterised by a full bank of deep drawers, with bead and butt end panels and traditional newel posts. Trademark Barr Kitchens solid timber drawer boxes are handcrafted with long-lasting dovetail joints for strength, durability, and a luxury aesthetic.
Bringing the space to life is, of course, a wonderful, handpicked collection of JudPots. Dressing windowsills, worktops and shelving, bold geometric design and rainbow shades add the perfect touch of individuality and definition.
