An Overseas Guide by deVOL – Part Two

6th July 2018

By Holly Bishop

You may have seen my previous post about sending deVOL Kitchens overseas, click here to have a look! It’s definitely worth a read if you’re based outside of the UK and would like to know how we go about designing and sending your dream kitchen to your door even if you live 1000 miles away from us.

This blog is about all of the other things we make and sell here at deVOL that can be sent to places around the world. We get lots of questions about this and so I just thought it could be quite useful to have it all in one neat little place for you to come back to whenever you like.

It is worth noting here that because conversion rates are always changing, we charge everybody in Pound Sterling no matter where they’re based. This means the cost is always the same for each customer. There is also a small international transaction fee that the customer is charged which is usually 3% of the transaction. The delivery prices mentioned below are guidelines to give you an idea but please do drop us an email to enquiries@devolkitchens.co.uk and we’d be more than happy to provide you with exact costs.

Hardware

First up, hardware! Our handcrafted knobs and handles can be sent anywhere in the world. You may be aware of Steph, deVOL’s resident jeweller, and her wonderful skill. We are lucky enough to have her working at our Cotes Mill metal workshop every day, sand casting each piece for our handcrafted knobs and handles collection. Sand casting allows us to create slightly different knobs and handles every time, the look of the hardware is different depending on how many little grains of sand you sprinkle inside the moulds. We love that we can offer this service to our customers and they can have one of a kind products, it makes sense that all the little extras should be just as special as the kitchens we make.

Hanging Rails

One of the latest extras to come out of our metal workshop at Cotes Mill is our Hanging Rail, the perfect accessory in any home. Ready to be sent overseas, they’re beautiful and so practical – we’ve seen them as a rail for pots, tea towels, mugs and jugs, and we’ve even used one for a few hanging plants in the Millhouse. They’re available in both Aged Brass and Aged Copper, aged by hand by Steph to get a really lovely mottled patina. They are then sealed with a thin coat of wax to protect the finish.

Classic Shelf Bracket

These beautiful shelf brackets are sand cast and aged in-house to achieve a lovely mottled look. Available in an Aged Brass or Oxidised Brass finish, these brackets add a touch of vintage glam to any room and are perfect if you’re hoping to update a shelf without changing the whole thing. We really love how they look in our scullery in the Millhouse, supporting a cool slab of Carrara marble.

Aged Brass Taps

We have always recommended Perrin and Rowe taps to our customers, they’re beautiful in design and totally reliable and of the best quality. We decided to partner up with the iconic brand to bring you four of their styles in a beautiful aged brass finish that is exclusive to deVOL. It’s wonderful to see how popular these taps are and we love seeing them in our customers’ homes.

You may have seen on our social media platforms that we can now send three styles of our Aged Brass Taps to anywhere in the US!

Ceramic Crackle Pendant Lights

You may have seen our Crackle Pendant Lights hanging in our showrooms, either in person or on social media. Our amazing ceramicist, Claire, makes them and each one is beautifully unique and wobbly and crackled, a truly special piece to have in your home. They have been so popular since we launched them that we just had to offer them internationally!

Kat’s porcelain Pendant Lights

Kat, another member of our wonderful ceramics team at deVOL, has been working on a collection of lovely porcelain pendants for a while and we’re so pleased to be able to offer the final collection to our customers based around the world. Each pendant is delicate and elegant and just the perfect accessory in any room.

Wooden Accessories

Some pieces from our wooden accessories collection are too fragile to send overseas but we do have a few that can be delivered to anywhere around the world. All of our wooden Home Accessories are handmade to order in our workshops in Leicestershire using the highest quality materials and the best craftsmanship.

Seating

We love being able to offer our customers a range of handmade accessories, from the bits we mentioned above to bigger pieces like stools and chairs. Our Bum Stools came first, formed by sitting in wet slabs of clay and creating a super comfy seat! Next came the Bum Chair, the same principle but with a supportive backrest. Our Bum range is so popular with our customers and was even awarded the prestigious Design Guild Mark in 2017 for excellence in British Design!!

We’ve recently gone back to the idea of designing a stool and have now launched Helen’s Stool, a small, subtle, timeless design that looks wonderful just about anywhere. We’ve even seen it being used as a bedside table and it looked fabulous.

Handmade Tiles by Floors of Stone

Our sister company, Floors of Stone, make some really beautiful handcrafted tiles that can be shipped overseas. The resident ceramicist, Hannah, was inspired by the beautiful grounds of Cotes Mill and has created a wonderfully unique and lovely collection. Some of the tiles are actually made by printing plant cuttings, cut from our grounds, into the surface of the clay, then glazed. The tiles are rustic and charming and they’re so versatile in how you can use them!

Floors of Stone also sell some lovely handmade pink tiles and are currently working on their latest collection which features tiles in a beautiful faded green, deep blue and rich amber.

Now that was a lot of information… But hopefully some of you will find a couple of the parts useful!! If you have any questions on any of the things mentioned above, or would like to place an order, please just drop us an email at enquiries@devolkitchens.co.uk and we’ll be happy to help in any way we can.
