Full-Time Visual Merchandiser 

Culinary Concepts was started 20 years ago by founders James Denton and Kate Jerome. Our mission was and remains to this day, to create a company that specialises in designing innovative items for the table top and home - not only beautiful, but functional and affordable. 1999 saw the exciting launch of our brand at the Ideal Home Show, London and a platform to provide our customers with high quality affordable stylish cutlery. Since then, we have acquired a reputation as a leading designer and supplier of stainless-steel cutlery, table top and serving accessories, homeware and design-led gifts. In more recent years we have expanded even further to include modern lanterns, up-to-date lighting fixtures and statement furniture pieces. Every season we launch more and more on-trend, creative collections and because of this, Culinary Concepts are proud to be leading the way in contemporary table and homeware.

We exhibit at several of UK’s premier consumer exhibitions from the world renowned RHS Flower shows such as Chelsea and Hampton Court, to inspirational home events like Grand Designs and Ideal Home show.
