We designed this breakfront to bridge the style gap from antique to modern. Using clean lines and traditional glazing, we gave a nod toward the 18th century and covered it in a tight walnut burl with a narrow herringbone band. We specified glass shelves because they take up less visual weight behind the doors and allow for the option of adding lights to the interior. Whether your taste runs toward modern or classic, this breakfront offers myriad display possibilities.
Satinwood Vitrine Bookcase with Desk
What you see here is one of the finest examples of cabinetry work we have ever carried, created for us by an English cabinetmaker with whom we have been associated for over 30 years. Mostly satinwood, it has tulipwood crossbanding on the drawer fronts and vertical bands flanking the drawers. The center drawer houses a desk section outfitted with a contingent of small drawers and pigeon holes, with a tooled leather writing surface.
Glazed Door Bow Front Cabinet
Just the right amount of arc makes this custom, English-made mahogany* cabinet pleasing to the eye while optimizing storage and display in a piece that is only 22" deep at its center. The gentle arc carves away some of the depth that might cause a traditionally square piece to visibly encroach on valuable room space, yet it still offers significant function in an attractive package.
Architectural Open Shelf Bookcase
This is a custom made, English walnut open shelf bookcase with fluted column sides and sawtooth adjustable shelves. Its standard size is: 85"H, 53"W, 16"D (11" deep shelves), but it can be ordered in just about any size and configuration; it is also available in English yew wood or mahogany.
Large Georgian Style Breakfront
This breakfront features classic Chippendale design flourishes. From the broken pediment crown to the arcaded cavetto moulding, and carrying over to the carved window mullions of the domed side doors, the bold influence of Thomas Chippendale's vision is evident. While offering copious display space, this breakfront also manages to include an attractive amount of usable storage space--all packaged in an attractive design worthy of conversation.
Mahogany Glazed Door Breakfront
We designed this breakfront to look the part of an 18th century piece, but offer 21st century functionality. From the glass shelves that allow for the option of interior lighting to the false drawer front cabinets flanking the central cupboard, this breakfront has optimal storage and display balanced beautifully. Hand crafted for us in classic fashion by our English cabinetmaker, it offers clean lines and superb finish and utility.
Yew Double Dome Bureau Bookcase
Double dome, Queen Anne style bureau bookcase on bun feet in English Yew wood with Yew burl accents. Upper case is outfitted with myriad pigeon holes and drawers as well as cupboards with inlaid doors. Slant front desk has cascading, shaped front drawers flanking pigeon holes, column slides and a single cupboard with inlaid door. A tooled leather writing surface completes the exacting look of this handsome piece.
Walnut Corner Cabinet
This walnut, glazed door corner cupboard is just the right size to take up residence in just about any corner you can come up with. Measuring 30 1/2" along the back from the corner to the side, this can tuck in between a window and a corner with relative ease. Classically styled with arcaded cavetto moulding,13 pane glass and covered in a rich walnut grain.
Walnut Bureau Bookcase
Similar to the Yew version, this double dome Queen Anne style bureau bookcase in walnut burl is outfitted with myriad compartments. This version, however, simplifies things a bit with a more angular design and fewer drawers--for instance, what appear to be three drawers flanking the central cupboard in the upper section are actually single doors.
Yew Architectural Breakfront
Custom made by talented craftsmen, this classically style Georgian breakfront with its columnar accents has presence that is unmatched by many of today's bookcases and display cabinets. The rich, honey tone of yew wood affords this breakfront a hue that can blend well with just about any other wood, from oak to fruitwood--or even an antique faded mahogany--while the classic lines look as well with antiques as they do with modern interiors.
