    This September, British Standard by Plain English will bring its timeless wooden cupboards to our Shoreditch and Marylebone shops. We are both rooted in our commitment to quality and craftsmanship, which is perfectly expressed through British Standard's kitchens alongside our selection of products. Through this partnership, visitors will have the chance to view British Standard’s off-the-peg wooden cupboards in a brand new configuration and setting for the duration of London Design Festival.

    Since July, British Standard's Roving Showroom has put rubber to tarmac, travelling around to showcase what a British Standard kitchen can be. Taking inspiration from smaller, modern kitchens like those found in Barbican flats, the Roving Showroom fulfils all the requisites of a contemporary kitchen. The Roving Showroom will be parked outside our Marylebone shop on Dorset Street on Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd between 11am and 3pm, fully equipped with familiar Labour and Wait products!

    British Standard have created a bespoke, mobile kitchen unit to take centre stage in our Shoreditch shop on Redchurch St. Taking colour inspiration from our enamel products, this piece reflects the adaptability of British Standard kitchens, which, like the product selection at Labour and Wait, is able to comfortably straddle the traditional as well as contemporary.

    London Design Festival runs from Saturday 17th to Sunday 25th September, 2022.

    Some good news for Europe: We are tentatively beginning shipments to the European Union. It's a tricky process, so we will be serving one country at a time, adding as we go over a period of weeks to ensure we straighten out any kinks in the process. We're starting with our closest neighbours in the Republic of Ireland, who can start ordering today. We'll be reaching out to our friends on the continent in due time! Please note that due to new (silly) rules, certain items can't be sent to EU countries, which will be labelled on the product page when you're browsing.

    Thank you for your patience with us, EU!
