“We established Plain English in 1992, first setting up shop in an old tannery and then later in a rather grand Georgian farmhouse deep in the Suffolk countryside. As the business grew we gradually converted outbuildings, barns and stables into workshops and design studios. It’s where we still make all our cupboards and kitchens today. And it’s often the re-imagining of life in this old building in its heyday - a life of genteel and bohemian aristocracy - that frames much of the inspiration for our work. The plain Georgian architecture, the simple domesticity and of course, a very English fascination with nature, with the weather and the seasons drifting across the landscape. Our aesthetic references the values of the past and gently evolves to embrace the modern ways we live now. In 2012 we launched British Standard Cupboards our online sister company, selling off the peg cupboards, primed and ready to fit for anywhere in the home.”

Katie Fontana, Creative Director   &   Tony Niblock, Managing Director
