Bespoke kitchen maker Humphrey Munson has joined forces with Studio Clark + Co to create a new day room and kitchen area for Reigate and Banstead Women's Aid (RBWA) refuge for women and children fleeing abuse. When the two companies heard that the Surrey-based refuge was in need of a renovated day room where those staying could receive counselling in a safe, welcoming environment, they stepped in to solve the problem at zero cost.
The Humphrey Munson kitchen design is finished in Brolly Blue with aged brass Hexham knobs, a Caesarstone Empira White worktop installed by Cawdor Stone Gallery, a Quooker boiling water tap, and a Miele undercounter refrigerator.
“Like many in the world of interiors we are fortunate to be thriving at what is an exceptionally busy time. However, this is not the case for everyone and over the last year and a half we have observed how the pandemic has disproportionately affected many people. In particular, those who were already struggling in very difficult circumstances have found themselves even worse off," said Louisa Eggleston, Humphrey Munson creative director. "We were therefore delighted to partner with Studio Clark + Co to create a mini Humphrey Munson kitchen and were thrilled that our partners at Miele, Quooker, Caesarstone and Cawdor Stone Gallery were able to join us in donating everything required to create a fully functioning kitchen for the day room.”
Charlotte Kneer, CEO of RBWA said: "We have already been told by so many women how delighted they are with the space and for us at RBWA it has fulfilled our wish to make our brave clients feel valued and cared for. Thank you Studio Clark + Co, Humphrey Munson and all the companies who made this possible – you have truly made a difference."
