Clerkenwell Design Week (London 24-26 May 2016) – My Top Picks

  1. deVOL Kitchens

Known for their classic range of beautiful bespoke made interiors, hand made in Leicestershire England, deVOL’s stand caught my eye with its new range of kitchen ‘shakers’. I was dazzled by the copper sinks and Carrara marble worktops as well as the gorgeous range of paint finishes.

Featured above is their new utility display at Cotes Mill painted in the luxurious ‘Pantry Blue’. For more information visit

2. JamJar Lights

JamJar Lights was launched in 2013, the business developed from a small home based project into a well established unique lighting company within just three years. JamJars stand at Clerkenwell was filled with their full range of products from the original jam jar pendant light to fair ground lights, sockets and switches and chandeliers. The industrial trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and I think these guys are pioneering it!



You’re the designer! Made to order in their Birmingham workshop you can customised the cable colour, bulb size and ceiling rose finish for the perfect bespoke touch.

3. Very Good & Proper

London based design firm Very Good & Proper create practical furniture built to last by the most talented craftsmanship using the best quality materials. One particular product that got me excited was this modern take on the classic canteen chair. In a range of stunning colours I could take them all!

First launched in 2009 the ‘Canteen Utility Chair’ is designed by Ed Carpenter & André Klauser. For more information and to view Very Good & Proper’s full range visit the website below

4. Pluck

I was delighted to stumble across Pluck in the British Collection! I’ve found my new favourite kitchen designers, their use of texture,shape and materiality as well as sense of colour had me swooning. The stand was utterly unique, it featured cut out shapes showing off their colour palette like a puzzle…

Pluck have been designing and making furniture for 10 years in their Brixton (London) workshop. With all their experience they are constantly developing their craft, designing kitchens for modern living and tastes. Pluck’s website is well worth a visit, check out the ‘palette’ section for the most beautiful colour combinations to feed your inspiration.
