Meet the Herringbone Team: William Durrant

With Herringbone Kitchens having recently celebrated it's 2nd Anniversary (yay!), we thought it would be a perfect time to meet and introduce our team to the site, and who better to start with than our Director and Designer, William Durrant!

 

Hi! Give us a quick introduction; who are you?

Hi, my name is William Durrant. I live in Canterbury and have a one year old son, named Freddie, who keeps me on my toes.

 

Tell us about your career!

I have been working in the Kitchen industry for almost a decade. I started working for a much larger company and have also worked for another independent showroom. I learned a lot about design, project management and the kitchen industry in my first few roles. However, I wanted to branch out and be in the position to design my own kitchen ranges and manage all aspects of the project. I am lucky to have the opportunity to own my own company and very lucky in having the best team around me.

 

What is it you do at Herringbone?

I am the Designer as well as the Director.

 

What about design drives you?

I love a project and love when there are particularly challenging elements to the design. It is especially fun when clients are brave in wanting to try new materials.

 

What project are you most proud of in your time with Herringbone?

I’m proud of every project, they are all very important to me.

 

Why should people go with Herringbone?

We are a small independent company that relies on perfection, great design and customer satisfaction. Our team is up for anything, often times are clients come to us with ideas that we have not seen done before. We love sourcing new materials and finding creative ways to make kitchens that truly stand out.

 

What about you would people be surprised by?

I am a bit of a DIYer. I plumbed, rewired and plastered my entire house. As you can see, the transformation from an old student house is quite something!
