Kerry Laird, Fish­pools

Es­sex-based in­te­rior de­signer Kerry Laird has a wealth of knowl­edge and ex­per­tise, hav­ing worked in both the lux­ury res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial in­te­rior de­sign in­dus­try for more than 12 years. Kerry fo­cuses on each client’s per­sonal brief, cre­at­ing a be­spoke, tai­lored so­lu­tion for ev­ery in­te­rior project.

Why are han­dle-less kitchens a great de­sign so­lu­tion?

Han­dle-less kitchens are one of our most pop­u­lar de­signs and it’s easy to see why. You can cre­ate a sleek and sub­tle de­sign, with max­i­mum im­pact to the sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment. A han­dle-less kitchen will blend seam­lessly with other rooms and styles in your home, whether you have an ul­tra-mod­ern house or a con­verted barn. Han­dle-less kitchens have an ef­fort­less, time­less look, so you needn’t worry about them look­ing dated in years to come. The ab­sence of han­dles also means the doors are a lot eas­ier to clean and dirt won’t gather in those hard to reach places. There’s also such a wide se­lec­tion of colours and ma­te­ri­als to choose from in han­dle-less de­signs.

Is there a din­ing set you would rec­om­mend for reg­u­lar use as the al fresco din­ing sea­son ends?

Ce­ramic top din­ing tables are the per­fect mod­ern so­lu­tion for ev­ery­day liv­ing, giv­ing the aes­thetic beauty of real stone, without the has­sle of hav­ing to worry about heat dam­age or stain­ing as many ce­ramic tops are non-por­ous.

The Can­ta­nia Ta­ble teamed with the Jor­dan chair make a per­fect com­bi­na­tion, with the chrome legs of the Jor­dan chair per­fectly com­ple­ment­ing the stylishly an­gled legs of the Can­ta­nia ta­ble.
