The design studio, complete with hundreds of fabrics, wall coverings and flooring libraries, remains on the third floor.

‘The importance of the kitchen as the heart of the home is evident and with continued client demand to see and touch our offering, we decided to put it at the centre of our refurbished Harrogate furnishings and interior design showroom. Handmade in a Yorkshire workshop to our unique designs, our luxury kitchens not only highlight the quality of our cabinetry and drawers, but also give clients a stress-free way of creating their dream kitchen as we project manage the complete installation. We’re also looking forward to welcoming clients to cookery events at the showroom, hosted in our fully functioning kitchen.’

The creation of a kitchen room set in our Harrogate showroom gives clients the chance to see first-hand the unique way in which we curate collections of items, bringing together materials, fabrics and components to complement our interior design-led cabinetry,’ says Richard Grafton, RGI md.
