A modern rustic kitchen

Modern rustic kitchen by Sebastian Cox for deVOL

deVOL have teamed up with Sebastian Cox to create this beautiful modern rustic kitchen featuring sawn timbers, woven coppiced beech, solid oak worktops and a hint of copper.

Utilising sustainable British timbers and combining modern innovation with traditional techniques the result is a carefully considered mix of classic and contemporary design.

The whole kitchen is designed to look like it breathes. We’ve created something that feels clean, simple and light but is brimming with subtle texture to keep the choice of material front of mind

After my recent musings on staining or painting our floorboards black I can't help but admire the inky black dye that has been used in this range. This stains the wood rather than lying on top of it like a paint, allowing the texture of the wood to remain visible and giving it a tactile finish.
