Established in 1994, Summerill & Bishop is a kitchen shop that reflects the allure of a Provencal home filled with hand crafted earthenware, glassware and natural home products. Their collection of kitchen and tableware is a celebration of charming neutral earthy tones coupled with the elegance of modern yet simple and eclectic styles. Together their products bring warmth to the home, transforming it into a living and breathing space.
Set up by longtime friends June Summerill and Bernadette Bishop, the shop in Clarendon Cross first opened its doors in May 1994. Spending a lot of time in their kitchens, June and Bernadette decided to create a kitchen shop, selling only the things they liked and would have in their own home. Governed by the simple notion that the kitchen is at the heart of every home, and sharing a passion for family life, cooking and entertaining, their shop truly reflects this philosophy.
The combination of modern and old which June and Bernadette discover on their relentless quest for imaginative and stylish products makes the shop a wonderful and stimulating environment. Each item has been carefully selected, taken into consideration the beauty of its form and function. The shop has an eclectic range of kitchen and tableware that is adored by those who share a culinary passion, are design conscious and those who simply appreciate good quality products that help create an effortlessly stylish home.
From the shop they sell beautiful and practical kitchen utensils, cookware, ceramics, glass, vintage linens, candles, household brushes and other delights that will compliment your home. Sourced from France, Italy, Belgium, England, South Africa, Germany and the Middle East they sell pieces that are not mass produced, often hand crafted and cannot easily be found elsewhere.
Over the years June and Bernadette have a built a great relationship with customers who pop by regularly. The shop has been quoted by both Tricia Guild of Designers Guild, and Ruth Rogers of The River Cafe as their favourite kitchen shop.
