    The finish is a matt 2-pac polyurethane which we generally advise against as you cannot cut on the surface and it does scratch over time. A far better finish is to use an organic oil such as orange oil.

    The feature cladding (not actually in this photo) is 90x18 western red cedar from Timbeck. Clear oil finish.

    Some fridge models allow minimal clearance with the side cabinets and others require a gap or, for the fridge doors to sit proud of the cabinet face. We have actually pushed the fridge back for the photographs as this was a model that needed to sit slightly proud of the cabinets. Its important to make decisions about cabinet detailing and the fridge choice in harmony. We were stuck with this fridge from the outset.

6. Dream: Solid timberSolid timber surfaces allow you to take full advantage of the natural beauty of a once living product. If you’re choosing a timber, be it veneer or solid, ask if the source of the timber is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, which ensures that it comes from a responsibly managed forest, and protects our natural environment. It’s important to remember that the product will need to be finished to protect the natural material. There are a few types of finish products, like timber oils and polyurethane sealers, which vary in gloss level. I always tread with caution when using polyurethane. While it is more durable than oil, it can be really easy to apply, so much that it can turn a beautiful natural material into a shiny blob. If you’re going down the poly path, ask for the finish to be minimal, so you can still see the grain underneath the sealer. PROS: If you do manage to scratch the surface, the top can be sanded and refinished to look as new! This is difficult to do in small pieces, and generally better done as an entire surface. CONS: As timber seasons, the moisture content diminishes. Because of this, sometimes timber can warp and bend once made because the product is still seasoning and reacting to changes in its moisture content.

Contemporary designers such as Tom Dixon have also echoed a sense of Modernist design in their lighting ranges. Tom Dixon’s Beat lights, with their curved metal pendants, show a sense of craftsmanship and design austerity, much like what was celebrated by Modern designers of the time.Tom Dixon’s lighting is classed as contemporary design, although it was inspired by the Modern design movement, because it was created in the last decade.

19. Flowing space (Castlecrag, Sydney, NSW)In this Sydney cellular brick bungalow, the kitchen functions as a pivotal area connecting indoor and outdoor areas in terms of style and function. An exposed feature wall, dramatic lighting, a mixture of textures and sleek, clean cabinetry lines create a down-to-earth appeal that’s ideal for sustainable living.
