“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill

A couple of years ago I saw a photo of a kitchen and what really caught my eye was the wooden cutlery drawer.  And last week-end I finally got to take out our plastic cutlery divider and insert this one.  And it makes me smile every time I look at it.  To me it’s an unexpected piece of natural luxury.  It makes the mundane special.  Contact me if you want to get hold of Gavin at 4MFunxion (don’t know why he doesn’t have a website) who created this for us out of a single piece of kauri I bought some years ago from a sawmill up North.

PS:  My title isn’t original.  I stole it from author Malorie Blackman.

And here is what we replaced
