Newlyn's Champagne London Launch

Mark Wilkinson's latest furniture style, Newlyn, was launched in the Holland Park showroom in a buzz of excitement and a champagne party atmosphere. Interior designers, international artists, lifestyle aficionados and a contingent of London's finest were treated to a presentation by Mark of his inspirations and the design process for the beautiful Newlyn kitchen packed full of the latest equipment wizardry.

Having explained the influences of artists in 'The Newlyn School' in Cornwall and how this ignited an ember in his imagination, he enthused how this interpreted into his contemporary thoughts on linear design, resulting in his latest creation. Guests were then invited to look at the superb quality of the British craftsmanship, try the 'touch to open' cupboards and explore the innovative drinks centre and other up- to- the- minute kitchen devices. The Newlyn design received immediate acclaim as guests tried out the cleverly channelled handle recesses and marvelled at the sophisticated look of the chromed insets

In keeping with the theme of Newlyn, Paul Gayler, Executive Chef at London's 5 Star luxury hotel, The Lanesborough, gave a live cookery demonstration 'par excellence' in the actual Newlyn kitchen. With consummate ease he produced superb fish dishes using the freshest of ingredients specially sent from Newlyn in Cornwall, the same day. A tasting followed each recipe demonstration finishing with 'Clotted cream bread and butter pudding with sloe gin plums' which delighted an appreciative audience.
