The new kid on the block, Pluck, is a design and manufacturing company, which was launched last year with simple design aims that avoid fuss and gadgets and concentrate on colourful clean lines.
This striking Victorian terraced house, located in edgy design district Brixton, London, needed a fresh new kitchen which would reflect the eclectic tastes of its homeowners. Pluck used natural timber, sourced from a tree felled just a couple of miles away from the property itself, to craft the London plane cabinet doors. All the veneers were then hand-cut and arranged on such a way that enhanced the natural linear graining of the wood – so the stripy aesthetic would appear similar to an animal print. This added another texture to the busy yet beautiful kitchen scheme.
In contrast with the warm wooden cabinetry dark blue laminate elements and cool misty blue Corian worktops add a contemporary twist to the retro inspired kitchen, while the recessed pink cabinet handles echo the Setting Plaster effect wall colour. Pluck also worked directly with the homeowners to source the tiles and appliances for this kitchen.
The overall tone of the kitchen is beautifully quirky and original, and successfully meets the homeowners’ unique tastes – a couple who are passionate about colour and enjoy blending antique and contemporary pieces throughout the remainder of their home.Pluck | pluck.kitchen
