RB Design Devon style cabinetry in oak veneered joinery with black tops, curved Devon edging trims and recessed base plinths to give the overall floating appearance. The cabinetry features two opposite facing units with seating on both to allow a family to comfortably sit around the detachable table for meals and leisure.
