A very interesting commission from clients with a history of cabinetmaking in the family. It was an honour to be asked to make a bespoke commission, knowing that all details would be appreciated.
From first concept proposal to final piece, this project evolved three times. The final result is made up from soft flowing curves, and detailed veneer patterns. With the clients’ love of darker timbers and wanting a contemporary spin, I decided on cherry exterior veneer blending itself to surrounding furniture. For the inside, I chose maple, a paler timber great for reflecting light, and a soft, warm contrast enhancing the overall flow of curves.
The achievement was to make something that looks effortlessly put together. The joint details add to this illusion. This bookcase has fitted down lighters that can illuminate bookends on your favourite books, or add to mood lighting in the room. There are many colours and functions available on the remote control, enabling you to change the colour to suit your mood.
