Seeing Double

For kitchen company DeVol, having one showroom in Clerkenwell was simply not enough – it’s got two. There’s clearly something about the place.

Its Tysoe Street showroom, which opened in 2014, displays its Shaker and Sebastian Cox ranges, while its newer St John’s Square space features the Classic English and Real Shaker ranges. “Everyone asks why we’ve got two showrooms in Clerkenwell,’’ laughs creative director Helen Parker. “But there’s an easy answer: we love the area! It’s not full-on London but the quiet, cool, re ned part of town. It’s still buzzing and full of life, though, and full of creative, stylish people who appreciate quality and design.” She goes on to describe Clerkenwell as “a grown-up place with a fun side”.
