Mid century modern dressers

Here’s a pair of mid century modern dressers we completed for a client in the West Village.  Designs of the 40s and 50s often exhibited a lighter, more playful appearance highlighting the optimism of the era.  Form should follow function was often the mantra during this time period.

This is a pair of  T. H. Robsjohn Gibbings white lacquer dressers that will be the inspiration for a custom AV cabinet for the master bedroom of a client. The new AV cabinet will feature four front doors. Often when we build custom furniture for clients it’s a piece designed to fit into a larger set.  Usually the complementary furniture piece is difficult or impossible to find, or perhaps the wrong size.  The furniture of Robsjohn Gibbings is a popular design influence for many of our clients and elements are incorporated into our own custom collection.

TYPES OF LACQUER FINISHES AND COLORS

By | November 26th, 2010|all, Bedroom, CASE PIECES, Contemporary, Designs, Dressers, FINISH, Lacquer furniture|

One of the most popular finishes on our custom furniture is lacquer.   There are three main different categories that the lacquer finishes fall into:
1. Matte
2. Semi-gloss
3. High Gloss

Usually the first choice for designers is which of these broad finishes to select. The next decision is color, any color be matched whether it’s a wall paint color or matching the lacquer color to another piece of furniture.  It’s important to note that there will be a slight variance in the way the color displays if the lacquer finish is different from where the source color is selected. If you are pulling a color from a satin or eggshell Benjamin Paint sample, for instance, and would like to match that color with a high gloss lacquer furniture piece, the color will be the same but the finish will make it look slightly different.

Because you can match colors with lacquer furniture and it’s ease of cleaning,  maintenance, and durability, combined with its timelessness and elegance, lacquer furniture continues to be highly sought after. It also has a broad range of design flexibility in that it can be a compliment, accent or center piece with a broad range of styles including  Contemporary, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Beidermeier, Regency and Neoclassical.

pair of custom white lacquer dressersHere are some detailed shop drawings of a pair of custom dressers for a commercial space in New York City near 59th street and Lexington. The price range for a custom dresser of this size depending on materials, finishes and hardware, is between $2,200 and $3,600.The difference between buying a custom furniture piece like this instead of something you could find at a furniture store is the guarantee of premium quality, flexibility on the final size, finish and color. Purchasing a pair of custom dressers like these will fit the space perfectly and also have an excellent resale value. Often durability and resale are not considered when purchasing furniture but are two of the principal components separating high end furniture from poor quality/ machine made furniture.

Double twin dresser

By | October 20th, 2010|all, Dressers, Mid-Century Modern|

We designed this mid century modern dresser for a bedroom space client on 5th ave. It was a beautiful, light duplex facing Central Park and the client wanted a piece of furniture that complimented several of the existing walnut antiques while still feeling light and being functional. At first the client requested two separate dressers but then opted for what we call a “single double” which tends to look sharper in larger sized interior spaces.

The inside of these dressers contains two pull out trays that could be customized according to a client’s needs. The inspiration for this pair of dressers was an Andre Sornay Armoire that didn’t fit into our client’s interior space, but still retained the style which accentuated and complimented the other furniture.
