Producing new designs in this style is an interesting process. Clients usually have a rough idea of what they want, and as a designer you can play with this forever. This TV & Hi-fi cabinet was to have flat surfaces typical of Burges, it's the decoration that brings it to life. The starting point was to use Morris style Angels / ladies in the top panels, using a scroll to link them visually together. Within the 1 design we showed 3 different top door shapes we could use. The square bottom panels could be treated in 3 different ways, or mixed. It was a simple way to present the variations. This headed off to USA before we took any pix of the finished piece! The design shown above shows the cabinet minus the doors, so the client could clearly see the internal arrangement for the various pieces. We produced several designs for the bottom door panels. While this was designed as a TV Hifi cupboard, it could equally be used as a wardrobe, bookcase, drinks cabinet, general cupboard, office storage. The cabinet could have further Burges style decoration added to make a real wow piece. The interior could be fitted however you like. Made to order.
The original design was for a specific project, & made to that size. But you can change the proportions & colours of this cabinet easily, as it is made to order. The above examples will give you some good ideas for changing the proportions, from a tall cupboard to a sideboard.
