As a child of the era, our founder John Lewis and his family were loaned a beautiful seaside holiday house, complete with a brand new 1950s kitchen from English Rose. Ever since that time, he wanted to create his own take on this style of retro kitchen cabinets and put together the expertise, materials and equipment to make it possible.
Back in the 1950’s the English Rose kitchen was a ‘must have’, with households around the country craving this new, post-war, American inspired design.
Fast forward to today and we are still big on the 1950’s kitchen. In fact, retro and vintage style has been sweeping the nation over the last few years, with an array of festivals celebrating various eras and American style diners appearing in many towns. It’s even made its way into mainstream fashion, affirming that vintage can be thoroughly modern.
This retro style of kitchen, comes with a special slimline handle, set on a chrome recessed backplate. The handle comes in a section of colours to compliment your design and complete this unique look.
Our Crème de la Crème range combines modern quality and the luxuries of today’s technology with classic vintage style. This eye-catching design really will make your kitchen unforgettable.
By choosing from a wealth of materials and textures for your Crème de la Creme units and cabinets you can create your own distinctive and highly individual look. Complete this fabulous look by adding retro or true vintage accessorises and this timeless design will look as good today as it did 60 years ago.
This classic 1950s design features beautifully crafted doors and eye-catching curved drawers which stay true the original design of the English Rose kitchen. The crème de la crème kitchen doors are the perfect canvas for adding a high gloss finish, using striking, bold colours to complete the iconic retro look.
