Smart AND Zwart

It’s the classic architect domestic extension kitchen hack: buy IKEA cabinets, then design bespoke doors and worktops to create a high-end look. Furniture makers Dave Young and Ross Norgate twigged it when they set up Bristol-based HUSK in 2018, ‘making beautiful kitchens accessible to all’ by doing just that – offering lovely doors and tops you just put on basic units. But their latest collaboration with Paul de Zwart’s Another Country really ups the ante, producing a classy range of cabinet doors in natural ash veneer or five hand painted colours and with timber or Dekton stone worktops, that look a million dollars but don’t cost the earth. All FSC certified and sustainably sourced – it’s a win-win!
