why should sabres have all the fun?
Is your kitchen a bit on the dark side? Our Light Dresser - launched three years ago - was born out of that problem. This is both a large lampshade and traditional dresser that provides stylish open storage.
With the inspiration and help of designers Light IQ we have added a light spectrum to help reduce seasonal affected disorder, known as SAD syndrome. So you can switch on and light up your mood.
Check out our light dresser;
Katrina Burroughs 'Freestanding and flexible kitchens can be put together fairly inexpensively, but they are also the focus of bespoke makers, design-artists such as Johnny Grey who specialises in living spaces in which you cook. A kitchen island in the shape of a shoe? A family food preparation area complete with a children's workbench? Nothing simpler for Professor Grey, the man to be the recipient of the first tranche of my winnings'.

Sandor Katz Masterclass in our clients Hampshire kitchen
Sandor Katz turned on a tremendous performance. Four hours of condensed thinking, from the history to the origins and current use of wild and homemade fermented foods. We learnt everything from how to make sourdough starters to kefir, cheese and milk products to the principles of alcohol fermentation. After a great lunch provided by Australian chef and food writer, Monique Lane, we had a hands on workshop making sauerkraut. We could not have had a better guide than Sandor, whose knowledge of this transformative 'invisible realm' of food and drink is second to none. And we could not have had better hosts than Roy and Janine Naismith, the owners of a now, eight year old, Johnny Grey kitchen.
Twitter users can dip into this culture by buying The Art of Fermentation or Wild Fermentation (the book I am currently reading) or following Sandor (@sandorkraut), a man described by Michael Pollen in Cooked as the 'Johnny Appleseed of fermentation, a fiftyish writer, advocate, and itinerant teacher'.
Kitchen Design Course receives widespread support
The kitchen industry came up trumps last Thursday in response to our presentation about the kitchen design course. Ten bursaries have now been promised, along with offers of marketing assistance to ensure we spread the word. These developments will ensure the course goes ahead later this year.
Bucks Uni and myself would like to thank Criag Matson of Roundhouse, Martin Warbrick consultant to Smallbone, James Herriot and Gordon Stanger-Leathes of Callerton, Gary Baker of Corian CDUK, Nathan Coburn of BSH, Simon Hart of Blanco, James Archer of Danesmoor, John Lennon of PWS, Michael Linsky of Sensio Lighting, Jim Gettings of AFG Abingdon and Ben Shipley ArtiCAD. David Sanders, as Blum's MD, provided us with great hospitality and proved to be the perfect chairman. If you wish to join the support group please contact either myself or Bucks New University: Christine.Vass@bucks.ac.uk.

The Long Kitchen, emotionally durable and multi-generational living space
At the Interior Design Summit on March 11th, sponsored by Blum UK, Johnny talked about kitchen design to suit four generations, on how the kitchen is increasingly becoming the key to a comfortable and satisfying home life. It continues ideas he presented to Newcastle University's December Changing Age initiative, exploring how we can make kitchens that last a long time, thirty years or more and what motivates people to hold on to them.
Jonathan Chapman's book, Emotionally Durable Design inspired some of the content. Come and find out how we can design flexibility and excitement into all aspects of kitchen living.
