Introducing Timeless Elegance: A Closer Look at Alistair Fleming Design's New Shaker Display In Lewes

At Alistair Fleming Design, our Lewes showroom is a testament to the enduring allure of bespoke craftsmanship, combining traditional aesthetics with modern sophistication. Our latest Shaker display exemplifies this philosophy, featuring carefully selected components that harmonise to create a kitchen that is not just functional but visually striking.

The Role of Color in Design

Central to this new display is the application of Little Greene Paint Company's "Chocolate" No. 124, a deeply saturated brown that evokes a sense of grounded elegance. This color choice is pivotal, not only for its aesthetic appeal but also for its historical significance. Originating from a recipe that dates back to Georgian times, this rich hue complements the kitchen's classic elements with a contemporary twist​​​​. The Chocolate color works harmoniously with the Fine English Antique finish of the Barwick handles from Armac Martin, enhancing the luxurious feel of the brass and adding depth to the kitchen's overall design.

Luxury in Detail: Armac Martin's Barwick Collection

Armac Martin's Barwick collection handles are the epitome of luxury in detail. With a design inspired by the rich history of brassware craftsmanship, these handles add a layer of sophistication to the Shaker cabinets. The fine English antique finish of these handles pairs exquisitely with the Chocolate paint, creating a seamless blend of tradition and luxury that complements the white veining of the Carrara marble countertops​ (Armac Martin Barwick Collection).

Sophisticated Surfaces and Appliances

The choice of Carrara marble for the countertops introduces a timeless luxury to the space, its pristine white surface dotted with subtle grey veining, which contrasts beautifully with the deep brown tones of the cabinetry. This classic marble not only enhances the room's brightness but also aligns with the kitchen's refined aesthetic. Complementing these surfaces are state-of-the-art appliances from Sub-Zero and Miele. The sleek black finish of the Miele ovens and the innovative features of the Sub-Zero fridge reinforce the kitchen's modern functionality while maintaining the overall style of sophisticated minimalism.

Enhanced by Light

The display is illuminated by strategically placed John Cullen Lighting, which highlights the rich textures and colors of the kitchen. This lighting is not just functional but designed to accentuate the luxurious elements of the space, ensuring that each detail, from the polished marble to the gleaming brass handles, is presented in its best light.

A Symphony of Design and Functionality

This new Shaker display at Alistair Fleming Design is more than just a kitchen; it is a showcase of how thoughtful design elements can come together to create a space that is both beautiful and highly functional. Each choice, from the paint to the handles and the lighting, has been made with precision, ensuring that the end result is as practical as it is beautiful.

We invite you to visit our Lewes showroom to experience firsthand the beauty and craftsmanship of our latest Shaker kitchen display. Each element has been chosen to appeal to those with a discerning eye for quality and style, making every Alistair Fleming kitchen a place to be cherished for years to come.
