An Aga cooker set in a tiled niche is typical of the English Victorian kitchen, aBritish style we love.
When I talk about an English Victorian kitchen as the inspiration for kitchens today, we need look no further for a prototype than this one by Robinson and Cornish. Begin with the imposing ivory Aga set into a deep, tiled and lighted niche with both relief tile and decorative panels inset behind the cooker. A mantel hood disguises the venting system and provides a shelf for display. Corbels (underneath the mantel shelf) and brackets on the island show how furniture details are routinely incorporated into fitted English-style kitchens.
White cabinets have inset, paneled doors and contrasting dark, round knobs. Open storage for cookbooks and glassware above the sink main sink is flanked by glass-door upper cabinets. The sink also boasts a graceful gooseneck bridge faucet with offset legs, lever handles and side spray — the queen queen of high-end “sink jewelry.” Polished black stone counters on the island and perimeter add a certain glitz and set off the rustic pavement floor typical of townhouse basements.
