PH Pendant Lamp – A Design Classic

PH Pendant Lamp in Scandi Kitchen

Incorporated into our Scandinavian inspired kitchen, the PH Pendant Lamp is a very clever design classic.

Designed in 1926 by Poul Henningsen, the PH pendant lamp is a marvel to behold. The lamp provides 100% glare-free light which is brilliant for creating a cosy feature in your home. It’s designed to reflect off a three-shading system, which directs the majority of the light downwards whilst also reflecting the light laterally. This allows the lamp to illuminate itself with a warm light created by its inside red cone and small purple-blue reflectors.

The Dualit toaster has become a kitchen must-have with their classic, understated design and strong reputation for durability.

Max Gort-Baren, a German-born entrepreneur, founded the company. He designed a six-slice toaster with a built-in timer in 1952. This was the first like it on the market. Dualit then grew steadily over the next 20 years – adding to their range and working on improvements and alterations. In the ‘80s, the Dualit toaster became the must-have kitchen appliance and this resulted in the company having to extend their factory twice over. Dualit now offer a wide range of kitchen appliances and continue to sell consistently today.

The retro look of the toaster adds a really friendly touch to the kitchen space. It can be bought in a variety of sizes and colours – from neutral tones to chilli pink and lime green. They’ve also experimented with copper finishes that are on-trend and extremely stylish. The versatility of the product means it can be incorporated into a colour scheme or used to make a distinctive statement.

AGA – A Design Classic

Kitchen Design with AGA oven Hampshire

Beloved by many Brits, the AGA is a totemic symbol of country living. The warm heart of the home, it provides constant heat to suit our damp climate.

Invented in 1922 by a Swedish Nobel Prize winner Gustaf Dalé, the license was bought by a British company seven years later who then began manufacturing. The AGA was revolutionary as it could be left on all day without the need for constant attention. Today, they are made in a Shropshire foundry which is listed as a world heritage site.

This iconic product is an opinion divider for many people with its various pros and cons. However, nothing quite creates that unique homely warmth in your kitchen on a wet cold day. Its shape and style timeless and long lasting – the AGA has firmly cast itself into British culture and will do for many more years to come. A true design classic.
