Lincoln company Chiselwood has become the only UK kitchen company to reach the finals of the World Kitchen Design Contest.

The contest is run by Sub-Zero and Wolf, the kitchen industry leaders in premium refrigeration, wine preservation and cooking equipment.

The 25 finalists were selected by a panel of seven esteemed architects, kitchen designers and interior designers during a four-day review and deliberation of the entries at the Sub-Zero and Wolf headquarters in Wisconsin, USA.

“The Rectory” was designed by Martin Holliday

The finalists represent a diverse mix of design aesthetics from six states in the United States and six countries outside of the United States with Chiselwood the only UK Finalist.

Chiselwood’s entry “The Rectory” was designed by Founder and Design Director, Martin Holliday, for the owners of an early Victorian listed Rectory.

She said: “Receiving recognition from an iconic brand such as Sub Zero/Wolf that enjoys a strong relationship with the design community is an outstanding achievement for the entire team here at Chiselwood.

“The fact that Martin’s design has been chosen from 1,500 entries from throughout the world is the most amazing accolade for Martin as a designer and for us as a relatively small, British designer and manufacturer, we are immensely proud.”

The contest’s 10 Global winners will be announced at a gala at Hotel del Coronado located on Coronado Island just outside San Diaego on Monday, September 25.
