Our History

It all started back in 2006, when Sam was renovating an old town house in Gloucestershire. He had a simple plan: to start making high quality furniture from ethical materials.

Fast-forward 13 years and the dream has been realised. Today, Sustainable Kitchens is a close-knit team of skilled creative professionals, operating with the environment at the heart of every thing we do.

The company name has changed over time – from It Woodwork to Honest Living trading as Sustainable Kitchens – but our core values have remained the same.  Our aim is to inspire a sustainable lifestyle founded on the principles of sustainability, honesty and positive relationships.

You’re always welcome to visit our showroom and workshop in Bristol.  Come and meet our team, have a look around behind the scenes, explore some new ideas and start fuelling your imagination. We’re looking forward to meeting you.
