Berkeley Mills creates bespoke kitchens with European ingenuity, Japanese style, and American craftsmanship. The Sereno kitchen makes strong use of straight lines in its cabinets, but counters this with a curvy fluid island. Made of sustainable materials such as bamboo, Australian Jarrah, and recycled glass, this global kitchen is also kind to the environment. The bamboo has a dense straight grain, which gives a fabulous striped pattern. The detailed handles and countertop in a ruddy Jarrah, bring warmth and class. Hidden behind the distinctive fronts is the best of European kitchen design. Made in Germany, features include: self-closing drawers which pull all the way out yet don’t slam; deep pantry drawers ideal for plates and ingredients; and lifting cabinet doors which prevent bumped heads. Besides the formidable function though, the Sereno kitchen is clearly a work of passion. Berkeley Mills has been handcrafting wood furniture in California for 20 years. That skill is evident in the pinstripe detail of the wooden countertop and the curved Jarrah door handles. Each kitchen is original, and Berkely Mills add detailed artisan touches such as Japanese lacquer display boxes, hand-forged hardware, and back splashes made of Japanese shoji paper to create a personalised unique kitchen.
