An unusual request provided a starting point for this striking piece; make an office unit with drawers large enough to hold wrapping paper.
Wrapping paper aside, the clients - some-time home-workers – also wanted a comfortable place to work which also reflected their love of all things hand-made.
With specific dimensions to work from, designs were drawn up and the timber was chosen - a piece of Olive Ash with bold tones and a pretty, patterned grain.
Olive Ash Wood
Secret Storage Drawer
At its base, the intricate grain of hand-picked Olive Ash was carefully positioned to give the drawers symmetry. The ornate recessed handles were an interpretation of an Arts and Crafts style elsewhere. Above, each shelf features built-in lighting to perfectly illuminate the clients’ books and objet d’art. There’s even a secret cubby hole, hidden by a discreet panel, for concealing those gifts so beautifully wrapped with paper from the wrapping drawer.
