Neptune Suffolk Kitchen from Parks Interiors

Suffolk, now available in Cornwall from Parks Interiors, first introduced by Neptune three years ago when they were inspired by a beautiful series of old english antique chairs. After careful research they discovered that these were first produced in a few workshops in the middle of Suffolk between 1790 and 1840. Their original chair has been a great success and lead Neptune to further research the East Anglian tradition of furniture making. They were not been disappointed! Earlier this year they launched a full collection of sideboards, dressers and occasional furniture, all incorporating classic details that have been brought right up to date. But now we have the ‘pièce de resistance’, the Suffolk kitchen.

The concept follows the classic Shaker look of pared back simplicity set to a perfect proportion. No adornments are needed here as the elegance is plain to see. The standard colouring reflects their freestanding Suffolk collection in reverse: the exterior is hand finished in a beautiful dove grey and the interior is in honed Slate. Timber abounds in a beautiful soft toned ash for the shelving and drawer boxes, which are fitted with state of the art soft close drawer runners.

Although traditional in its concept, Neptune have introduced many features that bring the functionality right up to the modern day. They are fully aware that space is always at a premium and have designed their cabinets to utilise every inch of potential space wherever possible.

This kitchen not only looks stunning, but also incorporates the full range of Neptune technology and techniques, from mortise and tenon traditional framing with dowel locks to their latest dimmable lighting with concealed glass shelving, as well as their own new magnetic close system. For Neptune, every detail counts as it makes the whole so much better.

Included in the Suffolk kitchen range is their stunning new cooker hood comprising two handy side cabinets and a hood. This allows for a concealed extractor system, a full length display shelf and stylish cornicing for the finishing touch. Side cabinets are fitted with adjustable shelves using their traditional zig-zag system and on the back of each door comes a useful rack constructed using the finest ash, perfect for storing jars and spices.
The top of the hood is perfectly flat providing even more storage or display space as required and, with a fitted cornice finishing the look, this piece will certainly be a focal point of your kitchen.

The Shaker movement started in England in the 1700’s and later expanded significantly in New England. This style evolved from a religious community that sought no unnecessary adornments. Each element of the design should serve a practical purpose first and foremost. Quality was of the upmost importance.

Although traditional in its concept, Neptune have introduced many features that bring the functionality right up to the modern day. They are fully aware that space is always at a premium and have designed their cabinets to utilise every inch of potential space wherever possible.
Their curved cabinets fit this brief perfectly and bring a softer look while providing maximum storage. Cunningly fitted with their zig-zag shelf system and hidden magnetic catches; to Neptune the details are as important as the cabinet design itself.

Their cabinet top drawers are supplied with a cutlery tray finished in velvet. These are removable if preferred; they add a touch of luxury while providing an element of protection for your cutlery. Each drawer box is constructed from the finest ash and the quality of workmanship is evident in the dovetail jointing visible when the drawer is opened.
