We are delighted to announce we have been appointed to handle the PR for Schiffini who have recently opened a London showroom.

Leaders in the development of the modular kitchen Schiffini embodies the creativity and craftsmanship of Italian design. Founded in 1925, the company has collaborated with some of the greatest names in industrial design such as Vico Magistretti, Alfredo Häberli and Jasper Morrison.  Headed by Enrico Schiffini it remains a family business to this day.

These visionary architects and designers have constantly rethought the concept of the kitchen; coming up with new materials, engineering solutions and functional advances. Each collection has its unique characteristics but shares Schiffini’s emphasis on design values and build quality and - crucially - on making the kitchen a space to be lived in and enjoyed to the full.

As nights draw in and the temperature drops, traditional glass buildings become less welcoming to spend time in.  But technology has changed all this and the high-tech, intelligent glass buildings from 
The Caulfield Company can be enjoyed all year round. State of the art thermal performance, automated shading and temperature control are operated through built-in weather stations for perfect four-season climate control. 

This is tried and tested technology, widely used in commercial buildings and now being applied to domestic projects from garden room extensions to modern conservatories and freestanding glass pavilions.

At the heart of The Caulfield Company’s designs are pioneering roof and door systems built for The Caulfield Company by the same specialist German company which fabricates for architects such as Norman Foster. These offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values (up to Passivhaus requirements) but also the ability to create spectacular modern structures.

Full Project Service: From planning, design and build to interior finishes and fittings

The Caulfield Company handles projects right through from planning permission to the design, build and interior finishes.  It also offers a complete interior design service including bespoke joinery made in its own workshops, integrated entertainment systems, timber and stone floors and contemporary furniture from leading names.   Mark Caulfield and his team of architects and craftsmen undertake projects all over the world.

A classic stonemasonry technique, bookmatched marble has become a key trend in today’s interiors.  Using natural marble slabs to create geometric feature floors and walls is the height of luxury for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms.

Now marble experts 
Lapicida have launched a far simpler, less expensive way to get the look.  Their amazing new ‘Bluetta’ porcelain offers a really authentic alternative to bookmatched marble, making it a great choice where budgets are limited or marble slabs would be too thick or heavy.  It is suitable for interior and exterior walls.

Light, strong and just 10mm thick, Bluetta’s extra-large tiles measure 2400mm x 1200mm each and are used in pairs to create the bookmatched effect shown here.  Easy to handle and straightforward to install they cost £142.80 per square metre (inc VAT).

Designed by Vanessa Van Reyk, this en-suite master bathroom occupies a light-flooded corner of what appears to be a Georgian mansion but is in fact a new-build.  From the panelling to the flooring, every detail has been carefully observed, to create a space looking, as the designer says, “like a striking alteration rather than a completely new design”.

On the same basis, she sourced all the grand bathroomware from 
Drummonds, citing its designs as “classic, simple, elegant and timeless”.  With the WC and shower tucked discreetly out of sight, the centrepiece of the room is the imposing ‘Wye’ cast iron bath with its polished metal exterior.  This silver metal theme is echoed in the tall towel radiator and the brassware, from the taps and showerhead to the legs of the magnificent Lowther double vanity basin.  Arabescato marble and handblown glass light fittings form yet more visual bridges between period and contemporary style.

Drummonds design and manufacture their own bathroomware using traditional techniques and materials, from cast iron to china clay and solid brass.  Refined and authentic, their pieces lend presence to both period and modern settings.

Drummonds’ product details:

All brassware and accessories are in a chrome finish.
