String Shelves

The String shelf has been around for nearly 80 years and has become a bit of a design staple. We look at the ways this simple and super easy to assemble piece could be used in your kitchen. Or pantry. If you have a pantry…..which seems unlikely, but worth visualising and using in a ‘one day I would like a pantry’ mantra.

Lexington X Boråstapeter Wallpaper

You know we like a good wallpaper here at Despoke. It seems to bear better results to grubby fingers than paint does and feels more luxurious. Swedish brand, Lexington, have collaborated with Boråstapeter to create a range of wallpapers that exude a relaxed East Coast style.

Lighting from VITA Copenhagen

Some brands aren’t great at making affordable lighting products that look like they are worth more. Vita Copenhagen are. Their designs are inspired by the Scandi pieces of the mid-century from names such as Louis Poulsen and Poul Henningsen,but don’t bear such a resemblance that it becomes awkward.

Movisi present Grow!

With so many of us working from home and trying to make sure the house still feels like a home even when it’s full of work bits, storage and organisation is key. German design brand Movisi has launched GROW! a flexible furniture system made from 95% air, manufactured in Germany and designed in Paris by Marine Peyre. Quite the Pro-European piece. GROW! will internationally launch on the 16 May at 5pm on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo and is a system that builds up on one single element allowing users endless configurations (over 10,000) and the possibility to easily alter an interior according to changing needs.

CDW Showrooms- top picks

On Friday we covered CDW’s famed exhibitions. Now we look at a few of the showrooms. There are over 90 so we would never get round them all, but this might give you a little bit of a point in the right direction.

Pantone colour for 2017 is Greenery

Finally- a colour that’s not a variant on grey. Whether it’s Rose Quartz or Marsala, let’s be honest there were some pretty tame, hygge-inducing (or sleep-inducing) colours on trend the last few years. 2016 as years go, was a little bit of a mess, so it’s good to see Greenery, sweeping in and encouraging a fresh start. We need it.

Kitchen Aid heaven

We at Despoke often think that the mark of a truly grown up kitchen, someone who seriously has their life together, is the presence of a KitchenAid mixer.  There’s something about their 1950’s fluid design, their chrome bowl and their rather large price tag, that screams- “don’t worry! I know what I am doing! of course I can make my own family recipe Yorkshire puddings whilst being calmly in charge of two under 5 year olds.”  We have no KitchenAid mixer….and feel this says a lot. Ahem.

Well, stand aside those who laugh at our lack of culinary appliances, for the makers of the iconic Artisan Stand Mixer open their first Experience Store in the world to customers in the heart of London’s West End on Wigmore Street and we are on our way down. Stylishly arranged over two floors, the store is the perfect environment to inspire kitchen designers, budding bakers and serious chefs alike. As well as helping you imagine you are living in a World of Interiors spread.

Not only does it display KitchenAid’s famous small domestic appliances including the new Artisan Mini Stand Mixer, but also the recently launched range of major domestic appliances such as the revolutionary Chef Touch Sous Vide system and Chef Sign Deep Induction Trays, which offer a perfectly balanced mix of iconic design and professional performance. We have zero idea of what these products do but we know we want them, for to say you possess a Sous Vide system, is to say you are in charge of your own destiny.

Perhaps most excitingly, the space has a fully functioning demonstration kitchen as well as a cookery school which entertains a rolling schedule of events, offering customers the opportunity to experience the professional results KitchenAid appliances can produce. So, you can try the covetable products in the safe haven of the shop, before buying one and fully growing up.
