Burbidge shows that the difference really is in the detail with landmark Langton
Award-winning kitchen manufacturer, Burbidge, is continuing to innovate and inspire with the launch of Langton; a truly luxurious new kitchen range designed to take the quintessential English shaker style into a new era of modernity.
Constructed from premium Ash wood, the beautifully crafted Langton door combines solid form with clean lines, resulting in a luxury yet contemporary appeal. The range is available in Burbidge's extensive painted palette including the new Mink, Putty, Old Navy, Gravel, Seal Grey and Soft Moss, alluding to the growing demand for soft, urban shades, as well as in bespoke colour options.
What truly differentiates Langton, however, is an unprecedented level of design detailing. Simple yet impactful, a smooth finished centre, deep inset panelling and a thick 23mm outer frame, provide a more authentic, lavish representation of traditional shaker styling.
Further distinctive features include a decorate plinth in a seamless, moulded form and ornately tall cornices, adding to the sense of grandeur. Internal touches such as dovetail timber drawer boxes and door hung spice racks ensure the look of luxury is permeated throughout.
The range is also abundant with accessories, including the option for curved and glazed doors, over mantel, open units and integrated storage, along with high-fashion handles and knobs. To make every kitchen design unique, retailers can also take advantage of Burbidge's ability to manufacturer special size doors and drawer fronts on request.
Ben Burbidge, managing director at Burbidge comments: "Amid the dominant trend for simplistic design and neutral colour ways, recent years have seen a much greater onus on design detailing - with the smaller design aspects often working to add a real distinction.
"As a business, we've always prided ourselves on our craftsmanship and retaining an acute attention to detail, however the new Langton takes this to a whole new level. Made from luxury, solid ash timber, and combining a relatively simple form with a host of exceptional design distinctions, Langton offers the premium look and feel of a bespoke kitchen.
"We see this as not only a reinvention of the classic English shaker but a landmark in innovative kitchen design, and are confident this will quickly become a bestseller."
The launch of Langton appropriately coincides with Burbidge being recently awarded the prestigious Manufacturing Guild Mark (MGM) following over 40 years' work designing and developing truly innovative and exceptionally crafted premium kitchens.
The company's products and kitchen collection can be viewed in realistic room sets at its showroom in Coventry.
