Bring home the look of your favourite restaurant: Kricket TVC

Perfect this rough-edged look from those that have mastered the art of dining

Industrial seems to be at the top of the interiors trend list at the moment. And nothing affirms this more than kitchen related brands releasing new collections to perpetuate it further. From its origins as loft-style apartments in Manhattan in the 1950s to its now softer form, industrial is a timeless trend.

Another space joining the ranks of this style is the interiors of the new Kricket TVC restaurant at the recently renovated Television Centre in White City. Designed by London-based design consultancy Run For The Hills, this is the third Kricket restaurant by the firm following the Soho and Brixton ones headed up by founders chef Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell.

Anna Burles, creative director of Run For The Hills, says, “The new design features a range of bespoke specialist finishes and layering of decorative grilles, custom metalwork and bespoke lighting. The overall scheme is fresh and earthy by day, designed to turn barfly-moody later on, for late night drinks and food.”

Materials, finishes and lighting define the interiors of the space. The eat-at-kitchen counter has a polished plaster finish and topped with crème pardais marble, with 18 leather-clad bar stools. The stools are finished in burnt bronze and cognac leather, giving it that warehouse vibe. The walls surrounding the horseshoe bar feature a specialist hand-finished aged plaster effect with burnished rose gold leaf accents.

The bathroom continues the theme with pipework taps and ironwork mirrors. It is on a grand scale with a three-metre-wide asymmetric antique mirror and a blackened steel trough sink. Harder finishes are softened by a rich ochre palette and monochromatic honed marble tiling.

Given its much larger size, the lighting design has been carefully detailed with targeted lighting, adding softness and warmth while zoning different areas within the space. For instance, a cluster of various-sized bespoke, hand-turned, beech wood cupola pendants by Tamasine Osher sit above the communal table.

Create an atmospheric and highly textured palette. Interiors photographer Paul Craig’s kitchen is an example of how dark patterned ash burr cabinetry brings in texture as well as luxe comfort to the room.

One of Cosentino’s best-sellers from its Industrial collection, Trilium is based on the look of aged, rusted metals with irregular, organic patterns. This becomes a low maintenance way of creating the stripped back look. Here, the shiny metallic light fixtures give the industrial material a refined look.

Inspiration by Cosentino

Rich and dark oil rubbed bronze, raw iron and refined gunmetal steel metalwork define the interiors of the new Kricket TVC restaurant. This impressive London loft kitchen takes a page out of their design book to create that authentic vintage feel. The kitchen pushes design boundaries by contrasting the minimalist Varenna kitchen by Poliform with a dramatic metal salvaged door that conceals a cabinet of delicate glassware.
