Proving that handcrafted light wood kitchens do not have to be twee, the ‘Sebastian Cox Kitchen’, created for Devol, is simple and modern. ‘We think of this look as urban rustic; it brings a little bit of woodland into the city,’ says Paul O’Leary, founder of Devol. The design is packed with stylish details, from sliding dovetail joints to copper door pulls. An inky blue-black dye has been used to stain sections of the wood, but still allows the grain to show. True to his eco credentials, Cox has used sustainable, British-grown beech and ash timbers throughout.
