Introduction

Step into a world of enchantment at the Nkuku Lifestyle Store and Cafe. Nestled in a picturesque courtyard just outside Totnes, this hidden gem has undergone a remarkable transformation. From its humble beginnings as abandoned stone barns dedicated to farming, the space has now blossomed into a vibrant destination that combines the charm of the past with the creativity of the present.

Embracing the Past, Shaping the Future

Restoring the Beauty

The horseshoe-shaped layout of the buildings, with a sunny courtyard at its heart, offers a sheltered haven even on chilly days. At Nkuku, our commitment to preserving the original features and essence of the building was unwavering. Instead of tearing down and rebuilding, we meticulously restored the worn-out structures. This entailed extensive research to source reclaimed materials and strike the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality. By preserving the original stone walls and incorporating insulating techniques, we have created a space that authentically reflects the history and character of the building.

A Window to Excellence

The windows play a pivotal role in the transformation of the Lifestyle Store and Cafe. After careful considerations and consultations, we collaborated with a skilled local steel fabricator to craft bespoke window frames from raw steel. The result was nothing short of astonishing, adding an exquisite final touch to the overall ambiance we sought to achieve. With a total store area of 3000 square meters, it's a challenge to fit everything in, but our dedication to providing the perfect showcase for our homewares, gifts, accessories, and bespoke furniture collections remains unwavering.

Unveiling the Treasures

As you venture further into the store, you'll discover a modern barn dedicated to our collection of beautiful reclaimed one-off pieces. From sideboards and chests to wardrobes and fire pits, each item carries a unique story and adds a touch of elegance to any space. The original building houses a mezzanine floor, showcasing our handmade-to-order sofas, armchairs, ottomans, lamps, soft furnishings, and accessories. Created with meticulous attention to detail and made in the UK, our furniture pieces offer comfort, style, and versatility to suit your individual taste.
