THE SUFFOLK KITCHEN BY

A MODEST CHAIR FROM THE 1700S SPIED ON A FAMILY HOLIDAY IN EAST ANGLIA INSPIRED THIS ENTIRE KITCHEN . WE HAVE A DEEP RESPECT FOR SHAKER-STYLE SIMPLICITY . IT SHOWS A REAL DISCIPLINE TO DESIGN AND A CLEANLINESS IN CHARACTER . EVERY ASPECT OF THE SUFFOLK THEREFORE HAS LITTLE OBVIOUS EMBELLISHMENT . IT ALL HAPPENS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS ( AND DRAWERS ).
The four different collections have been inspired by the classic English kitchen . No matter where a design takes them , that ' s what grounds it fundamentally . There ' s always a pantry-style feel , somewhere . But they like to explore and play with other influences from provençal to loft living . But also like to be a little unexpected sometimes . In a nutshell , they aim to honour existing classics but to be the creators of new ones too .
Each kitchen collection has its own handwriting ; they all have something that makes them unique to the other . But every one is timeless .
There are two key components that are only true to Suffolk . Firstly , the Potboard – this slimline design is almost like a kitchen ’ s console table in that it ’ s unobtrusive , subtle and just wants to help . It can be used on its own or at the end of a kitchen island and works as extra chopping space or as it suggests , to store a much-loved collection of pans and pots . Then there ’ s the double-door larder – every Neptune kitchen features a larder , but no two are the
same . The Suffolk is the only one that comes in two-door form . It ’ s the very definition of cavernous .
