I’m delighted to tell you that the one and only Christopher Peacock is in the Slow Luxe house this Mid-Week. Yes, my dear friends. That Christopher Peacock. The Christopher Peacock who has been whipping up some of the world’s most delicious kitchens in his company’s American workshop going on twenty years. And to celebrate this twenty-year milestone, they’ve recently debuted the highly anticipated Culinarium Collection.
This spectacular collection is a nod to the color, style and the romantic countryside of Denmark, The Netherlands and Flanders. The Collection exemplifies the ultimate in luxury and quality. “Culinarium is an important part of our global luxury strategy. I’ve chosen a blend of painted cabinetry and hand-selected white quarter sawn oak to exist together in a room. Culinarium takes on a more traditional feel as I’ve chosen to use cladding on the end panels in the room and I’ve made the door styles and rails wider. There is a chunkiness to the entire Collection, including the rounded hutch. What’s always thrilling for me is the hardware. I’m introducing polished copper hardware for its first showing. The rounded pulls and chic knobs are truly elegant, stunning and are destined to become iconic, and, I believe, fated to become the fashion. To say the least, I’m extremely proud of our work,” says Peacock.
Headquartered in Connecticut with showrooms in Greenwich, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco, and representation through a select group of design associates, Christopher Peacock products have been manufactured exclusively in the United States for 20 years. Every room of cabinetry is made to order and specifically detailed for the individual client. Using only the finest materials, his team of craftsmen fashion raw timbers into cabinetry suited for every room in the home. From kitchens to libraries, to spectacular bathrooms, Christopher Peacock remains the benchmark of taste and understated elegance.
I find the detailing of the new Christopher Peacock collection entirely fresh. I admit I was smitten by the hardware from moment I laid eyes on it. What do you think? Can you see polished copper handles in your future? What do you think of the chunkiness of Culinarium and the mix of materials?
Or do you prefer some of the past work we’ve seen from Christopher Peacock Home pictured below? For me, it’s all about the perfect understated mix of ingredients, whether traditional or modern, kitchen, bath or library and impeccable American craftsmanship.
Drop me a line, darlings.
I’ll be curled up with a good book in that bottom photo waiting to hear from you….
