I hope you like our huge! new prep table, it is the latest edition to our Classic English Showroom here at Cotes Mill and it looks great. The worktop is hand made at our workshops from wide boards of rustic oak, which we have oiled liberally. This worktop is a new look for us and i’m hoping it is going to be really popular as it looks and feels strong, beautiful and very hard-wearing. The wood has a few gnarly bits and knots and you know it will age well, a few knocks and bumps along the way will only add to the character of this beautiful wood.
The table is painted in ‘Blackened’ by Farrow and Ball and the drawers have our latest cup handles which have a slightly aged brass finish. This prep table is definitely the new Island!!, open painted slats at the bottom so you can stack up all your big pots and pans and chopping boards and wide drawers that will hold every type of utensil.
This look is the essence of a freestanding kitchen and will particularly appeal to people who love to cook, its simple, fresh and totally practical and would work in any style of kitchen. The table in the photograph is nearly 3 meters long and has two sets of drawers on both sides, you can’t see them on the photograph but we will post another image showing the whole piece next week.
This is a substantial piece of furniture and works perfectly with the proportions of our Classic kitchen showroom at the Mill, but we can make this design to suit any size of kitchen. Small or big it would be the spot in your kitchen where everyone gathers, the center piece to any simply furnished room.
