This amazing, living kitchen is about as wow as you can get. The house is an original Art Deco property located in Queens Park, Northwest London and has been completely renovated throughout with great style and care.

The whole kitchen design was inspired by the customers and their vision for this family space, the design of the room was also something they had seen and loved and wanted to re-create. deVOL were only involved in the making and fitting of the kitchen not any other parts of the room.

The Kitchens main feature is the big bespoke Island made from a combination of standard and bespoke shaker cupboards, creating a 3 meter long preparation table with Carrara marble worktop and breakfast bar seating at the end. The island houses a dishwasher, double bin and sink along with a lovely open end to show off the beautiful crockery this couple owned.



The cooker is a Viking, an American company that make really good, solid, stylish range cookers and integrated appliances. The glazed wall cupboards are based on our newest design in the Shaker range, ‘The London Wall cupboard’ (so named as it was first designed for the deVOL London showroom).


The Kitchen opened out through some beautiful Crittle style windows onto a south facing garden, the house was filled with an eclectic mix of old and new furniture. The most interesting and stylish pieces were the original cane a and wicker pieces that had been sourced from ebay.


The whole kitchen and dining area felt very opulent and substantial, really properly done and well considered this house oozed sophistication and cool.

A photo shoot destination for many of the big high street stores this house is one of our favourite kitchens of all times and shows the versatility of deVOL and the Real Shaker Kitchen.
