An article featuring Emma Farquharson’s best kitchen design ideas was spotted in a magazine by clients looking to redesign their ground floor kitchen. A well-proportioned room, it has good ceiling height and excellent natural light from large windows. Working with a structural engineer, the technical brief entailed removing an internal wall, fitting a supporting beam and installing high quality glazed doors leading into the garden. A sleek new kitchen was fitted in a combination of different finishes. Like all our projects, the specification for the room was to incorporate the clients’ beautiful art and sculpture. The room was redecorated and new lighting also installed: a pair of Provence brass pendants feature the island and the client’s own, much loved, original lamp by iconic Danish designer, Poul Hemingsen, rehung over the dining table.
“We wanted to find a designer for our new kitchen dining room and as luck would have it we came across Emma Farquharson in 'Elmbridge', local lifestyle magazine. The creative process that Emma helped us with, was to initially present us with several drawings/designs. After long protracted talks we eventually decided on two designs and like the practical artist Emma is, she could visualise what it would look like when completed.
After the initial creative process, we were introduced to a team of builders organised by Emma. They proceeded to reduce our original kitchen to rubble within a day. At that point, we knew there was no turning back and trust was paramount. Under Emma's expert guidance and attention to detail we felt secure. It was transformed from a shell to a practical and stunning kitchen dining room just as we had imagined. Emma's forte was the ability to direct us in practical and creative ways, which we would never have thought of.”
