plain english...




the inspiring rooms of plain english...


  • "Plain English is a traditional joinery company.
  • We use the techniques of 18th and 19th century cabinetmakers.
  • Skilled joiners make our cupboards by hand in our Suffolk workshop.
  • We don't like gadgets and plastic bits.
  • Most of our drawers run on candlewaxed wooden runners.
  • Our shelf pegs are hand turned for us by a small company that makes wooden nails.
  • Our baskets are hand-woven for us in Suffolk from willow grown along the banks of the River Box.
  • The local forge makes our iron shelf brackets and hanging pot rails.
  • The pull-out trays in our floor cupboards were copied from the slides in an 18th century linen press."

Oh yes... they used to have show kitchens in the basement of Liberty's in Regent Street, and believe me they are everything they should be, good, integrate joinery.
