Inspiration from David Lisle

What is the true cost of your kitchen?

A new kitchen can change the shape of your home, but it can also contribute to the changing shape of our planet. On top of an abundance of aesthetic details to mull over, considerations involving sustainability and responsible sourcing of materials are paramount.

Not so long ago, the more scarce a species, the more desirable it was for our homes and people were lusting after the most exotic wood they could find in design magazines. Things have changed dramatically and nowadays ensuring wood is responsibly sourced is not a fashion choice, it’s an inherent part of our culture. The ultimate find is sustainable timber that not only looks beautiful but is also extremely durable, meaning that, like the forests from which it came, your kitchen will stand the test of time.

David Lisle, based in The Old Chapel showrooms in Macclesfield, Cheshire, having spent his career in furniture and kitchen design, understands the importance of using ethically and responsibly sourced wood. For his bespoke kitchens, he sources from forests in Northern Europe and the USA and trees are replanted as soon as they are felled, making it truly renewable.

When you meet with David, he will personally shows you around the extensive showroom, explaining the types of wood he uses, as well as his fine Burr Oak and Walnut veneers and range of granites and marbles.

David will sit down with you to go through the various design styles, features and details available as well as providing solutions for lighting, storage and use of space. He will ask you for your individual vision and ideas and together you will develop the perfect design scheme for your kitchen.

Add all this to the impeccable craftsmanship of his cabinetmakers and you will ultimately create a unique and beautiful living space that won’t cost the earth.
