'Modern' vintage

Linda and I have fallen in love with this 1950's kitchen cabinet. It was made by Stoneham of Deptford and was the height of sophistication at the time. I have done some research and discovered it is a 'Cambridge' kitchen cabinet. Stoneham still make kitchens and are now based in Sidcup, Kent and have a royal warrant as furniture makers to the Queen.
This one is in immaculate condition and has obviously been cherished over the years. It still has a little egg box, a 'fridge' compartment and a thermometer on the front, cutlery drawer, a pulldown worktop and this fabulous original orange Fablon inside. We've been playing 'house' all afternoon since it came into the shop.
It could be straight from the pages of Modern Vintage Style, a new book out by Emily Chalmers.
