Our Tysoe Street Showroom Has Had A Little Update
12th August 2022
We opened our Tysoe Street doors in the winter of 2014. It was our first showroom in London – our second in total at that time! – and so of course we had to fill it top to toe with our favourite and most popular deVOL pieces. Eight years later we decided it was time to give it a little spruce…Our Tysoe Street showroom is quite an unusual-shaped room, the kitchen was a fun one to design!
deVOL furniture is never ripped out and chucked. It doesn’t have to be, our kitchens are designed and made to last forever, they age with you and your home and remain functional and beautiful throughout. But investing in great quality cupboards doesn’t mean you can’t ever have a refresh if you fancy it.The loveliest sink run, featuring a smattering of new deVOL accessories.
The bones of the room in our Tysoe Street showroom stayed the same. The Shaker cabinetry remained in place, as did the exterior Pantry Blue paint that has become quite a key ‘deVOL look’ over the years… but we decided to add a pop of colour to the internals, opting for sunny ‘Scullery Yellow’, one of our newer Shaker shades that has completely stolen our hearts.Scullery Yellow and Pantry Blue, two Shaker colours that look like they were simply made for each other.
We also replaced most of the hardware with knobs and handles from our handcrafted range, in a new finish called ‘Heirloom Brass’. It’s a little warmer than our other brass options and is polished, it gives any piece of furniture quite a grand, traditional look which we love. Isn’t it amazing how a space can seem instantly transformed with something as little as a pot of paint and a change of handles. We could have stopped there and been happy but we decided to go just one step further…A great big double sink, fit with an aged brass Ionian tap and mini Parthian hot tap. Perfect!
The Dairy Table now takes centre stage in this room and works so well with the simple Shaker furniture. It is part of our Heirloom Collection, an elegant oak island inspired by the ‘under the stairs’ kitchens of the past. This traditional prep table is perhaps not something you would immediately imagine for a quirky London property but actually, it works perfectly and proves you don’t need an old manor house for this style to work.The Dairy Table, a perfect spot to sit and soak it all in… or to chat through your plans during a design appointment!!
We also added our brand new Cream Subway Tiles (more on those soon!), an iron Pot Hanger above the Lacanche cooker, Café Curtain Rails with wispy white linen, Heirloom Gaselier and Task Lights and our much-loved Helen’s Stools.A deVOL showroom isn’t complete without a few copper pans and there’s no better way to store them than on our hand-forged iron pot hanger. The Heirloom Task Light is a favourite of ours, designed with practicality in mind – with no compromise on looks either, of course!
We are completely chuffed with the new space. It feels so different, and yet there’s still all the charm of the original kitchen. If you are thinking of changing up a room in your home, whether that’s adding a few new fittings or a whole new piece of furniture, we hope this gives you the final push to just go for it! And remember, we’re here if you need a hand with anything.
