STRATFORD KITCHEN A mid-century inspired kitchen, designed for a mid-century house. We love mid-century style, and so when we were approached to design this kitchen for a beautifully revived mid-century villa in Warwickshire, it was a dream commission. Simple, clean cabinetry was brought to life with the gorgeous iroko timber, and the cabinetry sat on a matt black plinth – a classic mid-century detail. A walk-in pantry, lined in single-depth shelving, was framed behind sliding doors glazed with traditional reeded glass. Refrigeration and storage was contained in a long run of tall cabinets, that finished in a mirror-backed bar with integral ice bucket But the show-stealer was a set of bespoke, handmade shelves that screened the kitchen from the hallway in this open plan home. Subtly detailed, like only real furniture-makers can, with traditional jointing and mid-century radiused edges.

The owners were looking for a mid-century vibe in their new lounge and wanted alcove storage for books and ornaments and somewhere to keep the Skybox and DVD's out of sight. Built in white open storage and cupboards with a touch of oak to tie in with their newly polished parquet flooring.

Conversion of a five-bedroom, five-bathroom B&B into a single-family home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. The objectives of the renovation were to complete extensive repairs to the roof structure to prevent it from slowly collapsing on the house below and to move the living areas upstairs to immerse the entertaining spaces in nature. Natural light and treetop views now suffuse this mid-century modern inspired Tewkesbury home. A new kitchen picture window to the front elevation and sets of large windows to the back and side elevations flood the “upside-down” home with constantly changing natural light and capture a treetop outlook in the front and garden views at the rear. The sofa, armchairs, nest of tables, sideboard, dining table and chairs are all Ercol original furniture pieces. In true mid-century modern fashion, the space is enclosed by slatted screens and lightly zoned through the arrangement of furniture and rugs, above which the eye can pass through unhindered. The design of the kitchen was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s abstract geometric compositions with Yellow, Blue and Red. Mondrian’s paintings are characterised by flat black horizontal and vertical lines that create a grid filled with coloured forms. In the vein of Mondrian’s art, anthracite grey handle channels are used to build a grid that frames all the drawer and door fascia. The vast expanses of grey are subsequently broken by the introduction of rectangles of bright colours in spice tones that create a new equilibrium.

The open plan living room in this flat is light and bright, and the beautiful Georgian sash windows are the main feature. The white oiled oak floor & Carl Hansen Wegner chairs contrast with the original Georgian fire surround, cornice and skirting boards. The contemporary tan leather sofa and sideboard sit happily next to the mid-century armchair & cast iron radiator. Plaster wall lights, a large table lamp and a multi bulb pendant provide layers of light when required.
Midcentury modern design was born out of the 1950s and 60s, in the middle of the 20th Century, as the name suggests. Often referred to as simply midcentury as well as midcentury modern, it can be recognised by the iconic designs that were born in the period, such as the G Plan wooden furniture of E Gomme and chairs by Arne Jacobsen and Charles and Ray Eames.

Midcentury design incorporates clean lines, rich colours and materials, and an effortlessly retro feel. Teak wood, tapered furniture legs, rectangular sideboards, shapely upholstery and sunburst designs are all elements that make up midcentury modern decor and design. If you want to add a bit of midcentury sophistication to your home, try a midcentury sofa with a wooden frame, spindly legs and simple soft upholstery. Make sure to add a low and sleek midcentury coffee table in walnut or teak, and you’ll be set. For full-blown retro midcentury fun, look for the famous egg chair, Palm Springs prints, bold colours and monochrome prints, pop-art posters and shag carpets. Midcentury design can either be turned up high or added subtly to a modern home, it’s up to you how far you want to take it.
