Extreme Launches New Luxury Kitchen at London Studio
We are delighted to announce the launch of our newest luxury kitchen design, Cultural Discovery, now on show at our London studio in Barnes. We invite you to come and have a coffee with us as we show you around and you experience our furniture first-hand.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
As with all Extreme projects, behind our new display lies a personal story. This kitchen design is influenced by a professional couple and their love for culture, colour and cooking.
This couple’s travels have inspired their way of life and influenced their home decor style, as well as their taste in cuisine. As keen cooks, they enjoy preparing organic, nutritious home-cooked meals and experimenting with spices and flavours. They often entertain friends and host dinner parties, so desired a dedicated bar and drinks cabinet within the kitchen. Although not afraid of colour, they like to use it sparingly to achieve a home environment that feels vibrant yet cosy and understated.
The luxury kitchen design combines the lifestyle and style of this couple, infusing the scheme with influences from their visits to Asia whilst still creating a comfortable and functional space to be enjoyed. Among the key design references were a honeymoon hot air balloon ride above Bagan in Myanmar, temples such as the Bakong Temple in Cambodia, and the bustling street food markets they experienced in India.
FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY
The kitchen material palette comprises dark veneer cabinetry in both flat and fluted curved finishes, combined with individually sourced quartzite, bronze design details and fixtures. Burnt orange adds a subtle hint of colour, chosen to reflect the colours of spices they experienced in India and the breathtaking sunsets in Myanmar.
The triangular kitchen island features an intersecting, raised breakfast bar in Taj Mahal quartzite with a bronze stepped detail. A bespoke built-in herb trough offers space to cultivate fresh herbs and introduce living plants and greenery to the space.
Pocket doors open to reveal a hidden bar with a custom metal back panel. The completely original design is unique to this kitchen, featuring intersecting triangular bronze forms which pay homage to the sunset skyline they experienced during a memorable hot air balloon ride in Mayanmar.
