BESPOKE KITCHEN MAKERS LOOK AT FURNITURE TRENDS FOR 2020
With September fast approaching, it won’t be long until people pack up their BBQ’s and firepits and begin moving indoors. To help you get ready for the change of season our Bespoke Kitchen Makers have been busy collating their favourite trends for 2020.
MATT BLUE AND WHITE KITCHENS
Darker kitchen cabinetry and powdery matt finishes are one of the strongest trends for bespoke furniture this Autumn/Winter 2020. The biggest colour that has come through in modern kitchen design is navy, replacing the go-to grey. Darker hues like navy blue will make your kitchen feel fresh, serene and luxurious.
While there are endless colour combinations you can choose from, whether blue and light grey or navy and wood-brown, our favourite is a crisp white. This classic colour palette dates back to the ninth century when cobalt pigments were used on white pottery in China, and later in France during the 18th century.
BOUTIQUE HOTEL LUXE
Boutique hotel luxe is the latest design trend that you need in your home. Boutique hotels have a way of creating a sense of refinement whilst maintaining a home-away-from-home. How do they do it? The secret is to start with the basics, and high-quality furniture is at the heart of it all. We recently designed some bespoke pieces for Baraset Barn in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Biophilia refers to designs that utilise natural materials. This term found its way into the mainstream during the 1980s when American Psychologist Edward O Wilson used it to address a disconnect with nature emerging from an increase in urbanisation. With a focus on wellbeing in recent years there has been a noticeable preference for furniture that connects us to the outside world.
Our Campden Range features an ash\oak slab with a unique ‘live’ edge. These pieces are made to order and crafted bespoke to you in a variety of wood finishes. Currently, on display at our Broadway showroom, pop down and see them for yourself or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

While you can’t deny that mid-century design is everywhere, it has taken a nordic noir detour recently. Earthy, naturally darker timbers paired with contemporary design are the showpieces of the most luxurious apartments, hotels, restaurants and bars right now.
The mid-century design will never have a sell-by date. The classic Eames chairs and the low-slung lines of the 1950s are still influencing design today. It’s the tapered legs and understated simplicity that are key to this trend. To best incorporate this look into your home, limit your palette to a few select colours and leave the furniture to make the impact. Our mid-century Stanton range is currently on display at our Broadway and Stratford Showrooms, pop down and see them for yourself or contact email@example.com.
GREEN IS THE NEW GREY
Is green the new grey? We cannot get enough of this fresh colour at the moment. Everything from soft sage tones to murky moss hues. The colour green is known for its restorative qualities and links to our wellbeing, inspiring visions of lush landscapes and natural forests. Interestingly it sits in the middle of the colour wheel, so it’s no wonder it offers a sense of harmony and balance.
The Four Corners Traditional Oak Kitchen range features beading on the doors and drawers, giving your kitchen a more period style. Capture the look by using period paint colours combined with traditional style handles.
The use of a bolder colour to create a focal point such as an island, larder cupboard or, around your hob, can add real impact in your kitchen.
