Explore Relaxed


Where modern simplicity meets traditional principles, the sleek, slim and straightforward Shaker design of Stanton cabinetry welcomes every-day life with open arms. With two prominent social points at the very centre of this look, functionality blends with practicality in offering the perfect space for kitchen living.

Deep rich tones of Hartforth Blue are wrapped beautifully by the natural warmth of Porcelain, creating a palette enriched with a refreshing modern-day feel, whilst the use of pale wood wall cladding blends beautifully into this contemporary setting - exploring a feeling of relaxed, breezy life. In contrast, a unique variation of two and three panelled doors cleverly reflects the resurgence of period features in this look, alongside the use of aged brass knurled handles, a Herringbone butchers block and an exposed plate rack; all nodding to a by-gone era.

Hidden storage

The striking features don't end there; a pantry with notes of timeless tradition lies quietly inside the tall panelled cabinetry, hidden from every-day view but packed full of essential storage space, whilst a contemporary appliance bank ensures the kitchen continues to work hard both functionally and aesthetically, through perfectly positioned symmetrical execution. This is a look that's straight, and structured, waiting eagerly to be embellished by the warmth of your home.

As you are ushered deeper and deeper into this contemporary Shaker style, the clever balance between the natural flooring, the crisp, veined worksurface and the neutral tones of the walls, offers an immediate calm.

Welcoming elegance

Using external influences to juxtapose a single colourway, Carbon's striking yet forlorn shade is the perfect backdrop to balance and allow an abundance of natural sunlight to immerse this space. In contrast to the deep tones and textures, a delicate femininity is added through a glazed cabinet and a strikingly opulent bookcase, both as the perfect accessory to house those treasured heirlooms, or simply used as an extra space for glassware, an informal display, or a beautiful wine rack.
