Cook's Kitchen, Hampshire, EnglandTransitional Kitchen, Hampshire

This bespoke professional cook's kitchen features a custom copper and stainless steel La Cornue range cooker and extraction canopy, built to match the client's copper pans. Italian Black Basalt stone shelving lines the walls resting on Acero stone brackets, a detail repeated on bench seats in front of the windows between glazed crockery cabinets. The table was made in solid English oak with turned legs. The project’s special details include inset LED strip lighting rebated into the underside of the stone shelves, wired invisibly through the stone brackets.

Primary materials: Hand painted Sapele; Italian Black Basalt; Acero limestone; English oak; Lefroy Brooks white brick tiles; antique brass, nickel and pewter ironmongery.

    It's the large copper block under the extractor.

    This isn't an Aga cooker, it's a La Cornue, which is a beautiful handmade cooker that is constructed for every customer on an individual basis to their specification.

    I believe the starting price for a La Cornue is around £5,000 but more usual Chateau range starts around £20,000.

    Hi. We designed and made this to match the range oven.

    Hi Pallas - they are indeed stone! Limestone to be precise.

    Hi Norma - pretty sure that this is called PPX by Stone Age - a limestone slab 600 x 600. Hope that helps!

      The kitchenThe kitchen is a key room in any home, and a large one with plenty of workspace, storage and seating is on most Houzzers’ wish lists. Open shelving is also a popular trend right now, and one into which Thompson has tapped.“My kitchen has to be spacious, with plenty of storage and worktops,” he says. “I love the clean feel to this kitchen, with copper hues giving it character.”Check out another Houzz favourite kitchen trend right now

      Make your table centre stageRemember the servants’ dark, cosy kitchen – all gleaming copper pots and that vast multi-functional table? The wooden centrepiece was big enough for several kitchen staff to be prepping on it simultaneously, while doubling up as a spot around which they could also share their suppers. This example works more as an island, for storage and prep only, but in a different position it could also work with chairs around it. Look out for ‘antique country kitchen table’ if you’re searching online for originals.
