After quietly beavering away in the corner of our Denmead workshop for many months, we are excited to announce that we are introducing a beautiful new range to our collection — the plywood kitchen. From the iconic Eames Lounge chair to everyday functional products, plywood has long been favoured for its durability, versatility, and inherent style. And, driven by our unwavering love of the effortlessly elegant Scandinavian aesthetic, it remains a design classic. Here at Higham, we already use poplar plywood to construct our carcasses and were keen to explore the potential of this fantastic material further. Thus, after several months of experimentation and development, our stunning new contemporary plywood kitchen collection was born!
An Extraordinary Material
Though plywood might not have the same luxury connotations as walnut or oak, its remarkable properties are prized by some of the world’s leading designers and architects. Here at Higham, we are likewise determined to prioritise quality, even if this means questioning preconceptions. As craftspeople, it gives us great pride to shine a spotlight on the benefits of this underrated yet rather wonderful material. Our new collection showcases plywood’s warm and tactile finish, its elegant pared-back style, and its remarkable strength and durability. Our beautiful ply kitchen range offers the perfect solution for anyone looking to create a modern, effortlessly stylish interior that showcases exquisite craftsmanship and exceptional quality.
Plywood Kitchens Built By Master Craftspeople
In order to do this extraordinary material justice, we manufacture all our plywood cabinets to the same exacting standards as our stunning traditional kitchens. Unlike most modern kitchens, our ply cabinets are built to order in the classic ‘in-frame’ style. This traditional construction method gives them unrivalled durability and distinctive looks and ensures their minimal, streamlined finish lasts for many years. We craft all our kitchens at our Denmead workshop using the finest handpicked timber and the highest quality components. Our highly skilled cabinet makers draw upon a combination of advanced technology and time-honoured techniques to ensure every piece epitomises absolute perfection. When it comes to quality, our ply kitchens are unrivalled.
And Designed By An Award-Winning Team Of Designers
Like all our collections, our beautiful plywood kitchens are fully bespoke. They are individually designed and crafted to order by our expert team, allowing you to create a truly unique and highly practical space. Our talented designers will work closely with you to help devise a solution that reflects your individual style and captures the essence of your home. They’ll take the time to understand your needs before discussing the best way to utilise your space. From custom-size cabinets to tailormade storage solutions, we offer an unlimited variety of ways to personalise your kitchen. Whatever your project, you can trust our creative and forward-thinking designers to encourage you to step outside your comfort zone to create an interior that you’ll genuinely fall in love with.
Eye-Catching Aesthetics Meet Outstanding Functionality
Much like the material itself, our fantastic new plywood kitchens fuse striking aesthetics and outstanding performance. They feature a range of practical solutions, such as deep drawers and pantry cupboards and are built with efficiency and endurance in mind.
As part of our mission to celebrate the material, we have chosen to reveal the edges of the ply. This distinctive design feature brings a warmth and honesty to our collection, offsetting the minimal, streamlined cabinet fronts. We have also created our own iconic round inset handles, which offer an elegant way to introduce real character to your kitchen, again highlighting the beauty of the material.
Our durable and sophisticated Fenix NTM finishes are available in a range of stunning colours to reflect your individual style. You’ll also find a sumptuous and practical selection of worktops to complete your design. Our ply kitchens epitomise style, functionality, and outstanding value for money.
Crafted In Line With Our Commitment To Sustainability
As a team of craftspeople, we have a deep respect for the materials we use and their origins. Thus, sustainability is extremely important to us. Like the rest of our collection, our plywood cabinets are crafted with sustainability at their core. We use premium quality FSC-certified timber and carbon-neutral Fenix NTM laminate. However, we don’t just rely on sourcing environmentally friendly materials to ensure our kitchens are sustainable. We believe the longevity of our furniture is extremely important. We can safely say that all our beautiful kitchens are built to last. Furthermore, any offcuts created during the manufacturing process are used to fuel our workshop, and we give the sawdust to the local farmer.
