New Los Angeles Showroom – Open at 930 N La Cienega Blvd

A Tour
Our New Garden Floor
A tour, this time, through one of our own design spaces

WELCOME to our Garden Floor on 51 East 10th Street.

Upon entering, Osea cupboards hand-painted in Sugar Sifter with Mouldy Plum interiors line the walls. The tonal colours and stainless steel finishes imbue a fresh, industrial sensibility akin to the lofted spaces we often enjoy working with in New York City. A Calacatta Viola marble, sourced from Italy creates drama through the window.

The Osea island and Stools by Plain English serve as a central area for gatherings. Above hangs a double pendant light with blackened steel hardware and soft white linen shades. Designed in collaboration with Nickey Kehoe, where we have a pop up shop in LA, the pendant is made to order from Urban Electric. Reclaimed antique taps and sinks in unlacquered brass add visual interest and a sense of history to our contemporary range.

To the left, a walk-in Larder Room is drenched in our own Tea Caddy. A dynamic space, the painted open shelves on top and bottom fit the ease of functionality necessary for a walk-in pantry or laundry room. Douglas fir and Iroko wood tops are paired with a slab of English slate for purposeful, practical diversity of working surfaces.

The Wine Room enveloped in Little Greene Paint’s “Chocolate Colour” includes glazed wall cupboards with sliding doors on hand-crafted wooden runners, lined with a custom De Gournay wallpaper.

Our Dutch Larder proudly stands and houses an unknowingly large-scale fridge and separate freezer. Nestled on each side are Larder Cupboards that display the brilliance and refinement of our bespoke designs, from a Larder with spice & fairy racks and pull-out trays on the left to simple oak shelving on the right.

The Farmhouse Table and Ball & Bar Chairs by Plain English in our vibrant Pretty Pickle gloss paint is ideal for hosting multi-course suppers.

Off of the dining area, the understated kitchen in our Off-the-Peg design is lined with a selection of our hand-crafted, Suffolk-made Delft Tiles. The maple interiors and worktop add warmth to the cooler tones of our Slub Linen finish mixed with Bib & Braces interiors.

Our Dresser in Boiled Dishcloth evokes a feeling of free-standing furniture and stores heaps of dishes and cutlery with carefully considered internal divisions and shallow pull-out trays.

Our Williamsburg range is on display in our new Flower Room, painted in Old Village Paint’s “Cupboard Blue”. The cupboards in this range are distinct with their pillow-fronted drawers and painted wooden knobs, a homage to traditional Shaker design. Peg rails were traditionally employed by the Shakers for additional storage and here in the showroom we have hung up a simple wall cupboard for provisions.

Finally The Boot Room, where a Georgian Frieze Bench is joined with a Wardrobe in Pottery Mug for storage of outdoor wear and boots. The rich and earthy shade is also picked up in custom wallpaper hand-blocked by James Randolph Rogers, harmonious to the room while inspiring pattern and texture.

We invite you to kick off your boots and stay awhile. Please visit us at 51 East 10th Street, or get in touch at hello@plainenglishdesign.com. We’re looking forward to learning more about your project, wherever it may take us.

Thank you to our partners BAS Stone who provided the stone worktops for our Osea display, Jamb for our fireplace, Original BTC & Urban Electric for lighting throughout and Forbes & Lomax for our switches and sockets.
