It’s a very complex process to get the depth of character to the oak to create the driftwood look; but the end result is worth it, with really beautiful results that create a unique and timeless style.
Colchester, Essex (PRWEB UK) 22 August 2014
A labour of love in both design and manufacture, the newly launched Henderson and Redfearn Driftwood Kitchen has echoes of style elements ranging from a traditional beachfront house to a contemporary city loft.
The Driftwood Kitchen is crafted from solid oak, which is pressure washed, scorched and finished with white lime to achieve the worn and distressed texture, before being given a tough matt top coat; a process that was many months in design and development. As with all Henderson and Redfearn kitchens, every bespoke component is created and finished by hand by the team of skilled craftsmen at the company’s Essex workshops.
“Whilst we work with some beautiful kitchen ranges, we felt the market needed something fresh and new and we worked with a variety of designs and finishes to come up with the Driftwood Kitchen,” says the company’s founder Simon Redfearn. “It’s a very complex process to get the depth of character to the oak to create the driftwood look; but the end result is worth it, with really beautiful results that create a unique and timeless style.”
As with all Henderson and Redfearn kitchens, the Driftwood Kitchen is provided as a bespoke range, designed and handmade to customer requirements. “In many ways, we work in reverse from off-the-shelf kitchens,” explains Simon. “We start with the space and the customer’s unique requirements and create the kitchen to fit every nuance and detail. With a bespoke handmade kitchen, there are no limits to design and making the use of space; it’s all in the detail.”
Fresh and bright, a recent Driftwood Kitchen installation included complementary glazed cabinets, reclaimed shelving, fitted with Carrera marble worktops and restored parquet flooring sourced from a church. “It’s such a pleasure to work with natural and reclaimed materials to realise a design; the results are stunning and we are really excited about the Driftwood Kitchen,” concludes Simon. “We are very proud to have introduced this truly unique kitchen range to the market.”
