The Georgian period of English architecture and design extended from 1714 to 1837, part of which was also known as the Regency period when George IV stood in for his father. It is renowned for some of the best examples of English design. This was not only visible in the properties built but also in the furniture that was produced to decorate it. Our Georgian Kitchens take the best of those design elements and bring them crashing into the 22nd century. Classic style, updated to suit our modern needs and workspaces.
While paying tribute to an iconic era of craftsmanship, the Georgian style is a modern-day in-frame kitchen. This means that the doors are fitted within the frame of the cabinet, giving a sleek finish.
Both the design and construction techniques are modelled on master craftsman from the Georgian period. It is taking these details from the past that enables us to make a kitchen that is not only classic but timeless.
The characteristics of the Georgian kitchen range showcase a much more rounded style compared to the square frame of a Shaker. The Georgian period was a hectic and prolific era of building, the empire was influenced by many overseas styles and this was reflected in the furniture. The biggest Manor houses had panelling, grand staircases and in some cases, Chippendale furniture.
Key features of the style included quarter-turned pilasters with matching lathe-turned cornices and skirting mouldings, quarter glazed wall cabinet doors and distinct furniture mantles with simple corbels and shelves.
The most common woods used during the Georgian period were oak, walnut and painted hardwood.
