Art Deco - painted wardrobes (21)


new Art Deco 3 door bedroom wardrobes painted with a Josephine Baker Cubist design

This is where the Art in Art Deco came from! This is one for the brave hearted, a piece of showstopper Deco. They were inspired by the Josephine Baker panel at the Folies Bergere, and blown up in scale to more of a Pop Art painting. We've shown quite a few colour schemes for them you have, or we can createit in whatever colours you want. The robes are very straight forward to make, they're really just a large canvas for the painting, and it is a practical piece of furniture as well. A joy to look at & use everyday.

The robe is shown here as a 3 door version. You could have this wardrobe as a freestanding or built-in robe, with 3 - 8 door versions. The interior can be fitted out as you like. Made to order. We don't give out sizes until we've agreed a spec. with a client. Usually we prefer more striking ornate handles for Deco wardrobes, but this time we've just shown them with low key wooden knobs, painted to blend in with the design. More ornate handles would detract from the painted design. But we can do any handles you prefer.

Josephine Baker Cubist design carved panel at the Folies Bergere in Paris, by Maurice Pico c.1928

The source of the Josephine Baker design is the large stone carved Cubist plaque on the facade of the Folies Bergere in Paris, c.1928. It is still as striking today for the virtuoso design and carving, by it's maker Maurice Pico.

Fitted wardrobes have to be able to fit whatever space is available in your bedroom. Quite often the robes have be fitted into corners, as the L shape runs above. They could be shorter with just a 1 door robe either side of the main design section. Ends of runs can be adapted for displaying ornaments, plants, etc., as the middle design above. The curved display unit picks up the curves in the painted design, and just softens the general shape of the run.


Ornate cornice versions;

Now if you're feeling very adventurous add an ornate cornice for a showstopper display of wardrobes. The Cubist pattern cornice echoes the Cubist shapes in the painted design using a classic Deco pattern. The cornice could be finished in evrything from gold or silver leaf to the alternating colours shown, it really depends on the robe colours you go for. The upper of the 2 designs uses a Miami pastel colour palette.
