Yet another new Deco wardrobe design we've added. It is a very striking design, the stepped Skyscraper outlines were inspired by Paul Frankl's 'Skyscraper' furniture designs. There is a wonderful rhythm to the repeating skyscraper silhouttes. This design utilises Maple, Bird's Eye Maple and Cherry/walnut for the furniture, treated in a novel graphic manner. Top boxes maximise the storage being built to the ceiling, and include some further subtle Deco design touches. The whole looks very sophicated. The middle pair of doors are actually planned to be walk-through doors to a large en-suite bathroom.
The above 4 pictures show the location for the new run of wardrobes. There is a large open archway in the wall going through to the en-suite bathroom. The client had a problem in that the bathroom faced the rising sun, so the bedroom was very bright in the mronings. And they lost a lot of potential storage space along the wall due to the large opening. There was also the additional problem of having a tall ceiling, but the ceiling sloped along 2 walls, making it trickier to fit furniture. The last photo shows their kitchen, they wanted to keep the same look and wood finishes for the bedroom wardrobes.
This was the first design produced for the wardrobes. It was based very closely on their existing kitchen, both in look and finishes. However, it was decided that the design needed more impact, hence the following door options were proposed.
This door style is a more subtle version of the style 2 doors. The main door elements are in Maple and Bird's Eye Maple. The 2nd version adds a darker wood trim around the shapes to define them a bit more. The top boxes are plain Shaker panelled doors.
Door style 2 offers a stronger visual impact than the 1st doors above, because the darker wood offers a very strong silhouette. The LH version shows just a darker wood and maple finish, while the RH introduces Bird's Eye Maple for the middle panel, for richer effect. The top boxes were enhanced with a dark wood Deco corner detail. Matching Skyscraper style handles, as shown below, can add considerably to the overall look.
The design above shows the runs of fitted wardrobes using style 1 doors, with wood trim for emphasisng the design shapes. The bottom design shows the wardrobes minus doors, so you can see the interior fit out. The fit out in this instance is quite simple, with mainly double hanging rails to maximise storage plus some shelves. You can see the walk-through to the bathroom now the gone. You can also see the robe top boxes have to be cut to accoumodate the sloped ceilings on 2 walls.
It's always a sign of a sucessful design, & attention to the details, when the wardrobe handles not only suit the style of wardrobe but actually add to the whole look. The handles shown above do just that. The 'Skyscraper' handle, above left, really emphases the stepped shapes in the doors & adds real Deco wow to the design (it is an expensive handle). The middle handles, in marquetry veneer, compliment the wood look and Skyscraper styling.The RH handle fits the style perfectly in a simpler way.
These robes above have been shown in just Maple and a darker wood, but we can vary the combinations of woods to whatever you want. And you don't have to have wood finishes, they could be lacquered in any colour(s) you want. As these are made to order you can choose a painted or wood finish. Shown below are some sketches showing colour examples of painted robes.
