Scatola Armonica Sideboard

Pairing a little detail with an otherwise simple modern shape seems to suit this sideboard quite well. There’s just enough scroll work to keep it interesting, yet it wouldn’t clash with or distract from other pieces in the room.

“Straddling the line between minimal and maximal, the Scatola Armonica Sideboard teams a spare, modern shape and materials with richly ornamental, scrolling details.”

24″ H x 79″ W x 20″ D

Those of you living in or around London will benefit most from this particular post, as I’m not sure how this would survive a trip to the U.S., but I thought it deserved a mention.

Totem Bookcase

I’m really liking this tall and skinny bookcase…and how great does it look against a dark gray/black wall?

Burnt Credenza 07, A Numbered Edition by Rob Zinn

This might need a ‘platinum member’ sticker, because while I sure can’t afford it, there’s a very small percentage of those of you who can. This reclaimed Douglas Fir credenza seems to have its credentials: hand carved/foundry cast solid bronze legs, intricate cut-out pulls, powder coated aluminum doors, signed and numbered by the designer (there’s only 10), not to mention the wood has been scorched and oiled to get the right finish. It’s a beauty.

“When scorched with fire and rubbed with oil, the lake-salvaged Douglas Fir takes on a richly colored and heavily textured black finish. The sculptural legs were originally carved in plaster by the designer, and later cast in solid bronze. Punctuated by crisp satin white doors with intricate door pulls, this piece is truly unique.”

84″W x 30″H x 19″D

Floating Credenzas

I was taking a look at the inspirational remodel in the Chicago apartment of Andreas over at apartment therapy, and practically flipped over the use of the Ikea cabinets as floating credenzas. The best thing about this DIY job is that it can be accomplished fairly inexpensively. If I were to guess I’d say that he used 30″x18″ fan top cabinet and the Strecket handles.
