Smallbone has been at the forefront of British kitchen design for more than 40 years, earning global success and a reputation for innovative design and uncompromising craftsmanship.
The brand is now part of Lux Group Holdings, home to some of the world’s finest design and furniture companies, including Mark Wilkinson Furniture, Brookmans by Smallbone and McCarron & Co. This has ensured its continued growth, allowing it to develop a diverse portfolio of wares that range from whole-house solutions to unique residential interiors, as well as to invest in key, new manufacturing technology at the Wiltshire workshop.
Now the brand is about to mark the beginning of a new chapter – and redefine luxury retail at the same time – with the forthcoming launch of its sensational new 15,000 sq/ft flagship showroom at Brompton Gate, Knightsbridge. Initially open by appointment only, the multi-sensory, four-storey space will feature several installations of iconic Smallbone collections alongside a curated selection of luxury brands, ranging from home technology to contemporary art. Visitors will have the exclusive opportunity to experience Samsung’s immersive cinematic six-metre-wide screen, ‘The Wall’, while Senso’s seamless, recyclable natural flooring can be found in various finishes throughout, inspiring clients as they explore the impressive showroom. On the first floor, a dedicated Omakase area for special events is set within a showcase of Smallbone’s classic and most recognisable kitchens, while the bar below – serving coffee, wine, champagne and spirits – brings new heights of refinement to retail.

In the early days Smallbone pioneered the concept of hand-painted kitchen cabinetry (the Original Hand Painted Kitchen was re-named to Iconic this year, and is still evolving) and it continues to innovate today through the unveiling of both the groundbreaking Icarus collection and its truly extraordinary showroom.
