Step back in time with John Lewis of Hungerford’s Crème de la crème kitchen

This modern John Lewis of Hungerford Crème de la crème kitchen has been made in homage to the iconic English Rose kitchen of the 1950s. These sturdy, high-end kitchens were manufactured using the surplus machinery, materials and workforce left over from making parts for the Spitfire aircraft and Lancaster bombers during the Second World War. This upmarket fitted kitchen, made from aluminium and with an aesthetic very much in keeping with 1950s America, was one of the first modular fitted kitchens available to buy in Britain.

Constructed using similar manufacturing processes to those used in producing aircraft components, this gorgeous retro kitchen collection has been crafted with all of the luxuries of today’s technology.

“There is a certain comfort in taking design inspiration from the past and reinventing the look with contemporary additions.” Kiran Noonan, managing director, John Lewis of Hungerford
