Kitchen Decor

ABOVE BOARD Sustainable, hard-wearing and resistant to water damage, bamboo boards are durable and won’t swell, shrink or crack. Brightfields Natural Trading Company offers an extensive range of bamboo products, including kitchen counter tops and flooring. Choose between horizontal and strand-woven boards; available in three varieties: Natural, Coffee and Fresh Green Coffee. VERY COOL! The Fridgey collection of cupboards from Weylandts, including this three-door tall cupboard (R12 995), is inspired by refrigeration systems of the 19th century. With self-locking handles and hinge mechanisms, the units come in an all-wood Tavern finish and would look right at home in an industrial or retro kitchen. LITTLE CHEFS Budding gourmands won’t want to wait to get their little mitts on the new Junior sets from Le Creuset. The Junior Pie Baking set (R350) consists of a mini fluted flan dish, small square dish and mini pastry brush; the Junior Cake Baking set (R480) a stoneware mixing bowl, six silicon cupcake cases and two mini spatulas, and the Junior Essentials Breakfast set (R480) has a mug, plate, egg cup and cereal bowl. All three ranges come with recipe cards to keep tots busy in the kitchen, and are available in Pale Rose or Cobalt Blue.
