The Slaithwaite-based firm has designed and fitted storage cabinetry for Lynsey’s home design studio – complete with a ‘hidden kitchen.’
Lynsey chose to use Daval’s Renzo collection in Charred Japanese Wood, which features doors made from 100% recycled materials and is part of the company’s commitment to sustainable products and manufacturing.
Lynsey said: “Sourcing materials for my projects locally wherever possible is really important to me. Daval is based in the same village as me, so they were my first port of call for working up the cabinetry designs for my studio.
“Sustainability is also integral to all my work. I hate waste and the thought of anything useable going to landfill. The Renzo collection by Daval was the perfect choice for this project as it is made from recycled materials and the Charred Japanese Wood finish meant I could balance sustainable design with achieving the rich, textured look I wanted for my studio.”
James Bodsworth, design director at Daval, said: “After partnering with Lynsey on her prize-winning design for Another Place hotel in the Lakes late last year, we are delighted to have worked with her again, this time on her own design studio.
“The design features a clever hidden kitchen with instant boiling water tap and reeded glass storage cupboards that sits behind two of the doors and is great for when Lynsey has client meetings and needs a facility to make drinks or prepare some snacks without returning to the main house.
“When we introduced Lynsey to the Renzo collection, she was impressed by its sustainable credentials and we both knew immediately that it would make a fantastic addition to the overall design of the space.
Daval, which has a kitchen and bedroom showroom at Spa Fields in Slaithwaite, was founded in 1978 and remains family-run by the Bodsworth family from Huddersfield.
James added: “We are seeing sustainability and buying locally becoming hugely important factors for clients investing in furniture for their homes, and consumers want to know the story of their furniture and where it’s being made.
“All our kitchens and bedrooms are manufactured in-house at our 100,000 square foot factory in Slaithwaite, so our clients know precisely where the furniture they’re choosing for their home is coming from and can be fully involved in its bespoke design.”
