Stone House The kitchen in a historic stone house in upstate New York is grounded by a large central Worktable with antique brass drop handles and button knobs. Painted in Plain English ‘Woollen Flump’ it offers plentiful storage space in deep drawers and a welcome location for before school breakfasts and mid-morning coffees.
The surrounding Spitalfields cupboards with Folgate doors are hand-painted in Plain English ‘Coal Scuttle’, a soft black, and topped with Arabescato marble, noted by its patterning. The marble extends, in a single slab, under the individual gas burners and makes a deep marble sink as well, under a set of casement windows. The extraction is tucked under a plaster canopy that works to blend into the existing architecture, rather than act as a feature.
A double Larder Cupboard hides both the fridge and freezer, its height letting it act as an oft-visited freestanding piece of furniture in this busy, family home.
