Host friendly lighting
The key to illuminating kitchen spaces is flexibility and balance. The right lighting can aid your desired atmosphere, regardless of your kitchen’s main function.
The Loer Pendant’s minimalist form is a great addition to kitchens that pride themselves on being understated, whilst the neutral colour palette suits a vast array of décor styles. The translucent orb casts a warm, celestial light through your kitchen, creating perfect task lighting for preparing your home cooked meals.
The Kern Pendant is well suited to spaces calling out for a single striking, centrepiece lighting design. A Tom Raffield twist on a classic chandelier, the Kern’s confident form holds five exposed bulbs to create an endless glow of welcoming light between the steam bent twirls of ash, oak and walnut wood. Perfect for kitchens that double as your entertaining space.
Add iconic form paired with statement light and shadow to your kitchen with the Skipper Pendant. Perfect for large, open space kitchens, the Skipper will layer impactful illumination into your space whilst the sculptural form creates a natural focal point.
Balance your ceiling lighting design with thoughtfully placed wall lights – allowing you to distribute light through your space where needed, whilst creating beautiful shadows. The Noctis Wheal Wall Light’s ebonised form will frame your space, whilst casting light onto your favourite décor or trusty cookbooks
Splashes of natural greenery will always be a welcome addition to any kitchen. Here at Tom Raffield, we think any empty space should be filled with a thriving houseplant, or delicious herbs.
Maen Pot Trio
Herb your gardening enthusiasm with the Maen Pot Trio. Three removable Maen pots stand shoulder to shoulder, showcasing your tasty homegrown herbs with pride, whilst the removable pots make it easy to infuse your cooking, or cocktail making.
Maya Wall Planter
Whilst kitchen wall space is often used for storage, the wooden Maya Wall Planter adds depth with its unique form and natural colour palette. Cleverly handcrafted to rest against your wall, the Maya is perfect for spaces where counter space is at a premium.
Holding your daily essentials, or your grab and go fruit, the Mylor Bowl does it all. With the ability to be angled to suit your space's needs, versatility shines through the Mylor. Positioned proudly upon a sustainably sourced, solid oak plinth the Mylor Bowl makes an elegant addition to any kitchen.
Arguably the most sought after feature in a kitchen – plenty of storage. By adding wooden shelving and clever storage solutions to your kitchen, you are able to keep you counter clear of clutter and make it easier to use and clean.
Tor Twist Shelf
From compact kitchens to large, open spaces, the hardworking Tor Twist Shelf holds your kitchen essentials with ease. A wooden shelf and hook storage, married by a steam bent twist, the Tor Twist Shelf is the epitome of form and function.
Simple, yet striking, the Taffrail is an unexpected kitchen addition. Allowing you to easily reach for your tea towels or to simply add texture to your space with draped linens, the Taffrail's minimal form is what makes it so beautiful.
Framing your favourite cookbook or coffee pot, the steam bent form of the Housel Shelf puts your homeware centre stage. The Housel’s distinctive form is well suited to maximalist kitchen spaces, populated with bold shapes and fluid lines.
