The Sebastian Cox Kitchen at Cotes Mill
Until now our Sebastian Cox display at Cotes Mill has been quite minimal, all this has now changed. We decided to completely refresh the middle floor of our beloved Mill and introduce a much larger and more substantial kitchen display.
We have added atmospheric glazed partitions between the ancient beams and posts of the building, they have given us new spaces to put base cupboards and create a whole new layout. The blush-coloured bare brick walls are the perfect rustic backdrop to the Sebastian Cox furniture, complementing the contemporary, simple style of the cupboards.
Five meters of copper worktop with integrated copper sinks is quite a statement, but as always with our copper worktops, there is no glare or brashness, just a soft gentle glow. A huge island on elegant legs is big enough to do just about anything and everything and has drawers deep enough to store just about anything and everything. Rarely has a piece of furniture this big appeared so understated and yet remained so incredibly versatile.
The fitted pantry and prep table area is a new favourite spot for us, the shelves and Heirloom Task Light create a wonderfully moody place to display and prep, and the pantry with a beautifully integrated fridge is about as pretty as an appliance can possibly look.
When you enter this new display, you're instantly calm. The soft colours and café curtains make you feel cosseted and at ease. It encourages people to stop and pull up a stool at the island and imagine the pleasure you would feel if this kind of kitchen was in your home.
