Kitchen furniture by Stoneham adds grace and space
manufactured by Stoneham and Son Limited - Sidcup, 1962
This kitchen catalogue was produced for Stoneham and Son Ltd in 1962.
During the 1960s, British consumers spent more money on their kitchens than on any other room in their houses. The kitchen often replaced the fireplace as the centre of the home, so the design of the space was important.
Fitted kitchens like the one pictured became popular. In the early 1960s, sleek, cool kitchens were fashionable. Later in the period, the fashion-conscious preferred warm, relaxed styles.
