Art Deco; Omega Workshops bookcase

New Art Deco Omega Workshops Bloomsbury Group Cubist design marquetry wood veneer 4 door/bay bookcase or display shelf unit

Another striking Art Deco design piece of furniture that could be used for several purposes, from bookcase to home office, display or media unit, drinks cabinet, etc. It has a great shape and presence in a room and would definately make a focal point for any interior. This pieces was designed by Roger Fry for his Omega Workshops in London c. 1913. The loose group of artists produced some very interesting work, with much emphahsis on art & colours. Several pieces were also designed using marquetry wood veneer, and this bookcase was inspired by a 2 door cabinet using the Cubist style giraffe design. The orignal piece pre-empted Art Deco by some years. We took the Cubist idea and extended it to produced a more Deco style bookcase storage unit, especially with the stepped top. The lower height top shelves give plenty of display space. The middle doors section section offers plenty of storage within, with shelving inside. These are original designs but definately capture the look of Deco.

The basic cabinet shape is a very straight forward looking piece, with a typical boxy shape. The door designs are made using marquetry veneers for a very classy striking look. The marquetry requires a high level of skill to cut it accurately, especially as large panels like these, which makes the not a cheap one to make. We could use veneers of your choice if preferred, or the design could be in painted colours. As these cabinets are made to order we can change the sizes & proportions to your requirements. We could make up a wider run of bookcases or a whole home office in this style if you want. We have used this design for a dining table as well, as shown below. We don't discuss design or prices until we've have agreed a specification with a client.
