Smallbone and Officine Gullo in showroom tie-up
Kitchen and furniture retailer Smallbone and Italian kitchen manufacturer Officine Gullo will partner when the retailer’s flagship London showroom opens next month.
The Brompton Road, Knightsbridge showroom, which covers 15,000sqft over four floors, will feature its Iconic collection alongside Officine Gullo’s cooking equipment, sinks and taps.
‘The companies have their own specific backgrounds but that is the beauty of this partnership. We have two brands with a deep heritage working in a different but parallel local tradition. It makes perfect sense for us to work together. It makes me proud to see our specialist appliances powering these beautifully crafted kitchens,’ says Pietro Gullo, Officine Gullo director.
‘We have selected a very smart pairing of signature white panels with gun metal trim for the metalwork, range and hood to tie in with the new look kitchen from Smallbone. While cooking is the focus of this kitchen it also looks outstanding, creating the perfect backdrop for entertaining family and friends while at the same time demonstrating the bespoke nature of what we do,’ says Alison Henry, interior designer and Officine Gullo brand consultant.
Officine Gullo opened its own 1,600sqft London showroom in March, just two days before lockdown.
The date of the opening has yet to be set, subject to pandemic regulations.
