    We explore our favourite dark timber kitchens, drenched in a rich chocolate hue.

    A timeless statement with the ability to transcend styles, dark timber breathes warmth and tactility into the heart of the home. When combined with solid industrial finishes like concrete and steel, timber has the ability to instantly soften a kitchen space. We’re highlighting rich timber kitchens from across the globe, be they with integrated appliances, bespoke cabinetry or a textural finish; they all share an alluring dark timber palette.
