Walnut cluster credenza cabinet. The client decided to have the book matched walnut cluster veneered exterior bleached and finished in a matt lacquer. It gives an effect that is far more subtle than the naturally darker colour the walnut would have been.
There are no handles on the doors to distract from the beautiful veneers. Touch latches spring open with a light touch.
The cabinet interiors are veneered in oak. The colour is very close to that of the bleached solid walnut but the look is brighter because of the satin finish.
There are shelves throughout the sideboard with smaller shelves in the centre cabinet for the storage of sheet music.
The matt sheen of the black marble top works well with the lacquer of the bleached walnut panels.
The overall faded look of the bleached walnut looks subtly aged, like old parchment. The end result is a walnut cluster credenza cabinet with classic details and modern styling. Which would look as good in modern or classic interiors.
