Following the launch of our first American Flagship showroom early in 2018, we created a kitchen space for the One Kings Lane store in Soho, New York. A kitchen that fits perfectly into a ‘City’ space while also providing the ideal backdrop for new and vintage products from One Kings Lane.
After the successful launch in Soho we have turned our attention to the new One Kings Lane stores in Southampton and Boston where we are excited to again be providing a Plain English kitchen. This gives customers the opportunity to see our millwork first hand and to see the level of craftsmanship and detail that are synonymous with our designs.

The kitchen at One Kings Lane, Soho was designed to provide maximum workspace and storage in a small ‘City’ space. The design uses our Spitalfields range of Cupboards, the second range created by Plain English and our most popular style.
The open dresser above the Cupboards is inspired by the Servants’ Quarters at English country homes and while taking note of tried and tested proportions, the open dresser also allows for a larger workspace and extends the length of the run of Cupboards.
Above the sink we have used two Wall Cupboards with fluted glass. This glass partially obscures the contents of the Cupboards adding a bit of interest and also removing the need to keep things looking perfectly ordered inside the Cupboards. We also love to use a contrasting paint colour in Cupboards like these. You can just see the change in
colour through the glass.
The kitchen uses some of our most popular internal details; our Clever Corner Cupboard makes perfect use of the sometimes wasted space and our Pull Out Sink Tidy keeps under sink cleaning products neatly ordered.
We love the look of the soft, flow veining and white and grey shades of the Super White Countertop and how it also looks next to the richness of the Iroko and the copper sink, which is hand beaten for us by a company in England who make classic car parts. The Worktable provides a working & preparation area in the middle of the room with deep, cavernous drawers. The brass Swan’s Neck hardware on the Worktable are made for us to Original Georgian designs that complement the detailing of the furniture perfectly.
The colours of this kitchen are based on the brand colour of One Kings Lane with the addition of Plain English ‘Coal Scuttle’, a Plain English Colour from Colour Collection No.1

As with all projects we work hard to establish the needs of the client alongside detailing that fits the character of the space. In Southampton we have used our Spitalfields Cupboards with our Wilkes & Southwold doors.
The Southwold door with ‘slots’ was inspired by the interior of a classic American yacht designed by Sparkman & Stephens. This seemed the perfect choice given the stores proximity to the sea.
The mix of closed door Wall Cupboards and open shelving allows for storage without the space feeling too enclosed. The kitchen also features a fully integrated under counter fridge and our most popular internal details including the pull out sink tidy and fixed cutlery and utensil divisions.
In the middle of the room we have our Worktable. A preparation area with deep, cavernous drawers allowing perfect storage for the essential batterie de cuisine.
The paint colours have been chosen from our new Colour Collection no.3 developed with Interior Designer, Rita Konig and are unique to Plain English. The colours included are Plain English ‘Bib & Braces’, ‘Flummery’ and ‘Cotton Pinny’ with the addition of ‘Inky Nib’ from our Colour Collection No.2.
The hardware is a Georgian Brass finish and is all hand forged for Plain English by our trusted supplier, located a few miles from our Head Office in Suffolk, England. The Worktops are Pippy Oak and Honed Super White. The sink is also handmade to our designs in the UK.

At Boston we have taken advantage of the fantastic ceiling heights with our Open Shelving Wall Cupboards provide the perfect place to display kitchen treasures.
Using our Spitalfields Cupboards with Wilkes door, we have included a number of our most popular internal details within the Floor Cupboards including; our Two Tier Cutlery drawer lined in a baize to protect silver cutlery and our Sink Tidy which makes under sink storage easier than ever.
The large Worktable not only provides working space and storage but a fun place to socialize while preparing food. The slight overhang of the Pippy Oak Worktop offers the perfect place for two stools.
The colours for the kitchen have been selected from our own Colour Collections. The floor Cupboards are painted in rich ‘Army Camp’ green, the Wall Cupboards in ‘Dripping Tap’ and the worktable is in a glossy eye catching ‘Candied Peel’ from our new paint collection with Rita Konig.
The hardware is from our Georgian Brass range, with Worktops in Pippy Oak and Honed Super White.
