Make a fantastic Deco impact in any interior with this stunning cabinet, strongly influenced by Paul Frankl's 'Skyscraper' style of the late 1920's. While this has a very strong visual outline, with the stepped shelves & breakfront, it is not too large a piece for the average home. Such a piece could be used many ways, from home office to bookcase, display unit, or drinks cabinet. Finishing the edges in a different colour is a detail derived from Frankl, and accentuates the stepped height and shape of the piece.
The bookcase can have a painted / lacquered finish, or be in a wood of your choice. We have shown a good selection of possible finishes below, from muted Deco colours to bright pastel Deco colours to classy veneers. The top section could have glass shelves, with LED lighting in the top, which are great for displaying Deco artwork (such as clocks, vases, radios). The base can be fitted out as you prefer, but is generally are supplied with a shelf only. As these cabinets are made to order we can change the sizes & proportions to your requirements.
The 4 designs above show how much you can play around with the look of such pieces. Generally symmetry is not part of the look of 'Skyscraper' style furniture, which was mimicking the asymmetric stepbacks of the New York buildings. While the above designs are very symmetrical, there are so many changes of height, width and depth that they also look asymmetric; a clever design trick. What they do show is how this range can be extended to produce larger pieces of furniture which would really dominate any interior. A pair of these single cabinets would look great either side of a fireplace or door. The larger units offer acres of display space, or ideal for the larger home office.
As designer makers we can produce any style of Art Deco cabinets you want, in any size, any material / finish, any internal fit-out, etc.. We can do individual freestanding bookcases, as shown above to runs, L shapes, & built-in bookcases; just ask. Every one is bespoke made to order, so we can tailor it to your exact needs. We can work with clients anywhere in the world no problem. Consideration should always be given to getting large pieces of furniture into your house room. We don't give out sizes until we have agreed a spec with a customer.
There are endless design variations we can do with this style of furniture, as shown above. As part of this range we can supply cabinets, sideboards (see cabinets section), drinks cabinets or home office. It would look stunning to have a room decorated with such pieces.
