About Papilio Bespoke Kitchens

“The places that we choose to live, work or relax in shape us as much as we shape them. We believe in transforming environments into inspirational spaces that are both functional and enjoyable.”

Matt Prall, Managing Director


Our design studio.

Established in 2014, we are a bespoke kitchen design company based in Frome, Somerset run by Matt Prall and Stephen Garland.

We are more than just clever designers, we understand what makes a good kitchen. Our bespoke design approach stems from our personal passion for food and wine, as well as a desire to create a functional and beautiful space that reflects every aspect of how it will be used.

Kitchen design

Understanding the multifunctional role of the kitchen as the heart of the home allows us to excel at creating bespoke solutions that reflect our individual approach to food preparation. We are skilled at transforming a blank canvas into a unique culinary hub that remains true to the character of the surrounding environment.

“The places that we choose to live, work or relax in shape us as much as we shape them. We believe in turning these spaces into inspirational areas that are both functional and enjoyable,” states Matt Prall.

Individual and personal

We transform kitchens by offering a personal approach, designing and crafting contemporary personalised systems tailored to deliver excellence all round.

The Marble Kitchen was created with the clients love of an AGA at the forefront of the design. We combined this traditional piece with modern materials to create a kitchen perfect for entertaining whilst “bringing warmth, conjuring up nostalgia and epitomising the centre of the family home”.

As the space was long and narrow, we created a partition in the space to conceal a large American style fridge freezer and put in extra seating with concealed storage under the window to maximise the kitchen’s envious views across the Devonshire countryside.

Other rooms

We may be experts in bespoke kitchen designs, but we can also create bespoke cabinetry for other rooms in your home. From bedroom wardrobes to handcrafted cinema room cabinets we work with the same craftsmen who make our handmade kitchens to create stunning and practical storage for other rooms in your house.
