A multicoloured, geometric sunburst design, influenced by stained glass picture windows of the 20s-30s and the popular Streamline Moderne architectural and industrial design movement of the Deco period, it is now a lavish tribute to this unparalleled period of style, whilst remaining an enviable addition to any design-conscious contemporary home. Completely stripped of its original finish and carefully sanded to remove decades of unsightly marks, its carcass (with its otherworldly woodgrain) has been refinished with a hardwearing wax-oil and now shimmers again. The central drop-down section, with sliding door and drawers, has been completely redesigned using a selection of tinted wax oils, stains and handpainted gold pinstripes. The design wraps around the raised wood sections creating an almost 3-D effect, whilst the suns rays to the sliding door rise and fall with operation of the drop-down door. The original metal handles, with their ornate, floral appliqué design and decorative baseplate, have been cleaned and re-gilded with gold gilding wax and sealed.
So too, all hinges and mechanisms have been re-gilded, whilst new brass magnetic catches have been fitted to all doors. Internally, the glamorous drink-serving section has a new mirror fitted to the base which bounces light around from the newly added, streamlined, rechargeable LED strip-light which is discreetly affixed to the underside of the sliding door.The light is easily accessible and removable via a magnetic strip, and has several functions, including on, off, motion sensing, stepless dimming, and can be adjusted to warm light, natural light or a mixture of the two. The underside of the sliding door has been painted gold which is pleasingly reflected in the new mirror, as has the recessed section of the drop-down door. The two side cabinets have been thoroughly painted in a custom mix of gold mineral paint, whilst newly-cut mirrors are inserted into the bases adding as sense of luxury to the storage of your treasured wines and spirits. Both drawers have been thoroughly cleaned and oiled, with a soft wine red leatherette fitted to the top drawer enabling protected horizontal storage for up to 6 standard wine bottles. The legs, feet, and elongated curved stretcher have been completely refinished with a mixture of wax oil and gold paint, elevating the entire piece. Indeed, the reverse of the stretcher is also painted gold - in the unlikely event you ever catch a glimpse of it! Viewings at my Studio can be arranged by.
