Two Cups of Tea

Two orange cups of steaming tea

Truly custom kitchens require state of the art and old world tools, and a great deal of thought, care and attention. And they involve two cups of tea!

The tea itself isn’t the secret ingredient in a Canterbury kitchen but it does represent the Canterbury difference — our respect for tradition and for old world craftsmanship.

Canterbury kitchens don’t come in a box. You can’t point to one in a catalogue. They aren’t designed for the masses and they aren’t reduced to fads or mass production.

They ARE designed to fit your home — your life! The only thing each Canterbury Kitchen has in common is the cup of tea at its beginning and the cup of tea at its end.

The first cup of tea is a place and time. It’s where and when you share your ideas and your dreams. And it’s when you tell us how you like to cook, who does the cooking and how your kitchen fits your life or vice versa (in serious cases).

The second cup of tea is a metaphor for the classic Maritime care and attention that we build into every single Canterbury cabinet, table, sideboard, island, hutch and proverbial nook and cranny.

Give us a call!
Your room is waiting. We’ll have tea.

About Canterbury’s two cups of tea

This is a story about two cups of tea. And it is an “About” story because it speaks, without mentioning any names other than John’s in the signature invitation, about the process Canterbury Woodworks took beyond the design, materials, colours, construction and installation of bespoke cabinetry for kitchens, bars, libraries, closets and furniture.
It’s one of my all-time favourite pieces.
