Kirtling Tower limed oak kitchen
European limed oak octagonal framed kitchen made for Lord and Lady Fairhaven at Kirtling Tower in Cambridgeshire. The Kirtling Tower limed oak kitchen was designed to echo and complement the Tudor architecture of Kirtling Tower, particularly the Tudor arched windows. All the kitchen doors feature a solid European oak Tudor arch raised and fielded panel, reflecting what was used throughout the Tower by the original builders. The back wall has a made to measure La Cornue oven, hob and extractor, with open fronted drawers to the left and dovetailed drawer to the right. All the knobs were made from the same oak, turned and then wedge fixed from behind. Most of the shelves throughout the kitchen are set on small adjustable pegs.
