Picking up gems on the seashore

Livingetc discovers an interiors outlet tucked away on the Kent coast

While enjoying a half-term holiday in Whitstable last week, Livingetc came across a delightful homeware and furniture shop right by the seashore.

Called Kent & London, it boasts a fabulous range of tables, chairs, cupboards and storage units, as well as a host of household accessories.

We were particularly taken with the tableware and decided that these wood dinner plates, £15 each, would make a great reminder of our time in Kent.

Mrs Livingetc also loved this linen apron, £49, although she took some time to decide between this Mustard colourway or the Turquoise, Lemon and Coral alternatives.

It didn’t take long for either of us to pick out our favourite piece of furniture, though. Straight to the top of our wish list goes Kent & London’s take on the classic kitchen pantry.

Available in all Farrow & Ball colours (seen here in Plummett with Parma Gray inside), the Larder, £2,150, is crafted by the company’s cabinetmakers using quality materials and traditional methods.

For a combination of good looks, fine design and country-luxe style, we think this piece is hard to beat.
