Designer Tips, Inspiration

East London showroom and partnership launch

We’re delighted to announce that from today Kite’s engineered wood ranges will be on display and available for purchase at Kent and London, a premium Interior Design showroom, in Shoreditch, East London.

When we launched Kite we knew that for high-end product, customers needed to view it in person. But our curated ranges didn’t sit alongside a traditional flooring shop – with their rows and rows of look-alike samples. We also knew that floors are more exciting and easier to choose when accessorised with high quality products.

Founded by Luke Ellis, Kent and London specialise in bespoke furniture and kitchens made in Whitstable, Kent. In 2016, they launched their showroom in London and now host some of East London’s most exciting brands, plus other talented European exporters.

Brands that Kite will sit alongside include; Floor Story– East London’s friendliest rug dealer, Marrakech Design, a Swedish company specialising in encaustic cement tiles, Corston Architectural Detail, MATCHIMATCHI lampshades, Studio Ore, who make handcrafted and hand finished brass taps, showers and bathroom fittings, Kast Concrete basins, and Vitamin Living.

Kite will be showcasing three ranges at the showroom, Kent – a geometric range (think Chevron and Herringbone); London – a premium, hand-scraped, rustic option; and Whitstable – a lacquered, flat board, each with a range of colour options. These have been handpicked by Luke and his team to be both flexible and complement the other products in the showroom.

Kent and London will also be offering the Kite fitting service, giving customers access to high-quality fitters from Wales. One of our teams recently completed their showroom installation, a highly-technical fitting with three different floors, a new sub-floor, and numerous intricate woodcuts.

Speaking of the recent partnership, Luke Ellis, founder of Kent and London, said, “We want our customers to be inspired when they visit our showroom and flooring is a key part of that. We couldn’t be happier with our new floors and the chosen ranges”.

Ed Grant, co-founder of Kite, said “Our partnership with Kent and London not only gives our customers access to our products, it also allows us to be part of an exciting ecosystem that introduces property and design professionals to independent, creative brands. This ultimately helps them differentiate their projects, maximising returns.”

Visit us at 5 Hackney Road, London, E2 7NX, we’re open 7 days a week, from 10am.
