Luxury Art Nouveau Cabinets

27th April 2012

Edward is currently working to commission on two exquisite cabinets for a luxury property in Surrey. With a heavy Art Nouveau influence the cabinets have marquetry inlay of a stylised flower in monotone veneers on the doors and detail a  fluted feature on the corners which runs up to an intricate scalloped cornice. The cabinets which are designed to house a variety of clothing items are made primarily in Maple with the marquetry in grey stained sycamore and just the anther of the stamen in a vivid orange. You will notice that the cabinets have no back legs, instead the cabinet sides reflect Art Nouveau lines and sweep upwards so as to rest directly against the wall. Edward designed this feature to overcome the 40cm high skirting boards found in the clients property, making the cabinets a practical mixture of being fitted and free standing.
