Big Screen TV Cabinet
Because this cabinet houses the main piece of entertainment equipment for this home, I wanted it to have a hint of carnival or theater. I used classic furniture lines to frame the piece with inlaid veneer ornamentation to suggest a carnival atmosphere. The framing is Black Walnut with a crescent of Olive Ash Burl in the crown face. The pocket doors are Brazilian Rosewood and Koa veneers with trim of antique French inlay. The door handles are curly Koa and Ziracote. The ornamental side panels are Brazilian Rosewood fish scales with Poplar dots. Black stripes run down through a field of curly English Sycamore to a checkerboard pattern of Redwood & Carpathian Elm burls.
Many of the design elements were taken from various furnishing in a French villa the customer liked. These elements were combined into this unique treasure.
Dimensions: 74" wide x 22" deep x 96" high.
