Charles Yorke Rio, Wells

Designed by Ruth Salway

A sleek, handle free bespoke range of furniture, the Rio kitchen blends modernity with a professional chef’s new venture. Our brief was to create a stunning, show stopping kitchen to meet the demands of a smart 20 cover restaurant with a list of commercial and domestic appliances to factor into the space

The main island provides a serious workstation for prepping, plating food and holding demonstrations when the client runs a series of tailor-made cookery schools. Raised seating to one side of the island is a great spot for small social gatherings where family and friends can chat and relax, drink wine and share fabulous food together.

The striking durable granite worktop withstands heat and is ideal for rolling pasta and pastry. Everything is near to hand with good ergonomics to minimise movement and make the space work effectively with clearly defined zones. We highly recommend a visit to 7B in St Thomas Street, Wells for classic French dining in Adam and Martine’s home.
