HOuse & Garden
Lewis Alderson director Tom Edmonds quoted in this month’s House & Garden in an article titled “How the range cooker became an object of desire”.
“We are finding that range cookers from brands like Wolf, Aga, Everhot, and Lacanche have definitely become status symbols in the UK and are a key consideration for almost every kitchen we create,” says Tom Edmunds, Design Director at Lewis Alderson & Co.
THE ENGLISH HOME
The English Home is one of the UK’s best loved magazines and is synonymous with luxury living. It has long been a favourite of ours too which is why we choose them for our advertising campaigns.
Their relaxed editorial style celebrates timeless design which is just a little bit different, which is exactly how we see the kitchens and other rooms we create.
In the September issue our beautiful Crondall kitchen has been chosen as their Edit of the month, with its elegant colour palette and exquisite fittings, this kitchen exudes our classic British designs.
Our latest Case Study is available in the February issue of Essential Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom magazine and features our trademark luxe tailored cabinetry with plenty of hidden storage and a statement island.
BEST OF BRITISH
We are very proud to be included within Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom magazine’s 100 page special on Bespoke Britain! The journey to this special edition, which is dedicated to handmade British kitchen design, began with lunch and a photoshoot held by the magazine’s Editor Rachel Hicks and attended by the country’s top designers. The lunch was a celebration of British design and examined what it really means to be ‘bespoke’ and the elements which combine to make the perfect space.
Our beautifully shot 4 page profile within the feature, showcases stunning imagery of our Wandsworth, Tadley and Hampshire kitchens with pull out quotes which really define the ethos of our business.
‘We do things properly, offering longevity and quality. A passion for detail and helping people’
‘We marry the latest technology with classic cabinetry, creating beautiful rooms that last’
Compact ‘galley’ kitchens can be just as stylish as large spaces and this is perfectly illustrated by our Hartley kitchen which is featured in both Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom magazine and Period Living this month. Smaller spaces require imaginative design to really make the most of the available space. The Hartley kitchen may be bijou but is still oozing with luxury and features all of today’s highly coveted extra’s such as a larder cupboard, range cooker and a beautiful dresser with space for small appliances and an integrated entertaining fridge!

Utopia for Tadley
Our stunning Tadley Kitchen has been featured as an 8 page feature in January’s Utopia magazine. This farmhouse kitchen in Hampshire required a high degree of design ingenuity to fulfil the brief for this newly extended kitchen/dining space. The owners, who are keen entertainers, requested a space which was classic and homely but with the very latest technology on display. The kitchen we have created lends itself to small family gatherings and large parties with ample cooking and refrigeration space and plentiful storage! View all the images HERE

INDOOR/OUTDOOR KITCHENS – THE TREND CONTINUES
Kitchen Bedroom Bathroom magazine have this month run a feature on the continuing trend for indoor/outdoor kitchens. Introducing walls of glass and similar flooring treatments for both internal and external areas really improves the spatial awareness and floods the home with natural light. The British weather probably has a lot to do with the sustained popularity of this design as it brings the outdoors in, even on the most dismal days. Our beautiful Wandsworth kitchen was chosen as a perfect example of how to design a practical kitchen/diner which also doubles up as a glamorous entertaining room. A space that offers a cool relaxed vibe in the sun-filled summer evenings and a cosy but elegant ambience in the short days of winter.
BESPOKE KITCHENS All The Rage
Our Wandsworth kitchen has featured in this month’s Kitchen, Bathroom & Bedroom magazine as part of their Bespoke kitchen feature. Showcasing the advantages of bespoke design, the feature draws on the elements which make a kitchen truly bespoke, such as the tailored design principles we adhere to. There is a growing trend towards bespoke, be it kitchens, fashions or even cars, as discerning consumers recognise the value of creating something truly unique and designed for their tastes and lifestyle.
Our ‘secret drawers’ have been featured in the April issue of Country Homes & Interiors magazine. Using drawers concealed behind a traditional in-frame door is more ergonomic than standard cupboard shelves. All the contents can be pulled out for easy access and you’ll never have to bend low to reach the back of your cupboards!
Our Esher kitchen has been chosen by leading interiors magazine Ideal Home to showcase one of their key trends for 2017 – Colour! The island unit is hand-painted in Fired Earth’s Chalk Violet, the glass splash-back colour matched for maximum impact.
