Inspired by the elegant, slated look of original 19th-century Suffolk furniture, these kitchen cabinets by Neptune display a respect for craftmanship, while the choice of colour adds a contemporary edge. Add a bespoke worktop, such as this one made from a reclaimed beam from a barn – it’s a rustic touch that looks suprisingly modern when paired with sleek, white metro tiles and black grouting. ‘Suffolk’ kitchen, from £9,000, Neptune (neptune.com)
