English Rose-style: 1950s-inspired Creme de la Creme kitchen by John Lewis of Hungerford

It's very uncommon to find an original 1950s English Rose kitchen in a house these days (although one or two have been spotted on the WowHaus site in the past). The next best thing, if you want the look, is to buy a reproduction. Like this 1950s-inspired Creme de la Creme kitchen by John Lewis of Hungerford.

It looks very similar. In fact, the maker even states that its design is inspired by CSA Industries' English Rose design, although as you might expect, the modern-day equivalent isn't made from the excess metal from World War II planes.

We love the curves, we love the Bakelite handles and we love the colour options, not to mention the way modern-day appliances have been fitted into this retro design. It also packs modern features such as soft close drawers and magic corners too.

What isn't so appealing is the price of one. It's a limited edition and handmade too, which means it will always be a costly option. The final price depends on your size of kitchen and personal requirements, but £20,000 is probably a decent guide price.
