We recently teamed up with Milestone Design Ltd to create bespoke kitchen cupboards and components. With the detail and attention required for such a project, only one of our best craftsmen could be tasked for the job - 'Franco'!
The aesthetic qualities and sustainable timber requirements were key elements to the project. All kitchen cupboards and components were handmade from native olive ash hardwood, sourced sustainably from accredited suppliers (with FSC/PEFC certification). The design of each piece allowed the grain to follow throughout the stiles, rails, panels, kick-boards and cornices, along with the handles being individually carved and shaped with a spoke shave, and finished with Osmo Polyx (Hardwax) Oil, achieving an outstanding organic look.
To conform with the continuity to the rest of the kitchen project, Milestone Design Ltd used a reclaimed teak bench as the worktop (once used in a school science lab), blending naturally against the olive ash kitchen cupboards.
We were told that the next door neighbour, of the customer who had the kitchen installed, had a nosey around the new kitchen and was envious of the design and has been in touch with Milestone Design Ltd!
