I discovered Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary design studio Think Fabricate at the Architectural Digest Home Show last month, where they launched a new line of products that included a fantastic chest of drawers with a built-in docking station.
Made entirely of walnut, each piece makes the perfect base upon which Think Fabricate’s rich color palette and series of patterns pop out. Descriptions below from the designers.
Fleur de Noyer
The Fleur de Noyer chest of drawers is characterized by clean, modern lines and a decorative fleur-de-lys motif, but the lily is not the product’s only connection to the natural world. Fleur de Noyer shows off walnut’s handsome qualities with a solid walnut frame and rounded corners as well as a walnut veneer casement to create a vibrant, quilted look. Available in varying depths, heights and widths and with two to nine drawers, the piece’s more modern features compliment the traditional, handsome sheen of the walnut body. Optional open storage below the drawers (for shoes or newspapers), bamboo drawer fronts, engravings and silkscreen patterns of morphing swallows add even more character to the line. Another modern innovation is “fleur-de-tech:” A fully integrated brushed aluminum charging station that offers multiple outlets for charging gadgets without the mess of wires.
TV Quilt is a dynamic and customizable series of cabinets, artfully composed to form a beautiful wall unit. With doors and drawers closed, it exhibits the refined delicacy of a patchwork quilt. Each unit features a slightly different design thanks to the natural variation of patterns and coloration in authentic French walnut. However, pulling a drawer, flipping a panel, or sliding a door reveals myriad storage opportunities and colorfully painted interior elements, which are also revealed on the sides. Available in two standard sizes, it can accommodate a TV up to 32” and 42,” respectively. The line’s latest addition includes an optional built-in bar, large enough to accommodate any city dweller’s adult beverage needs.
While the TV Quilt is capable of filling an entire wall, sometimes people just need a little extra space. The Wall*nuts line of diminutive cabinets is adaptive, sculptural, even playful. Each piece is crafted from solid walnut with optional silkscreened designs that create a dynamic juxtaposition between natural and handmade patterns. Varying frame sizes, depths and optional add-ons such as a bamboo or walnut veneer door or cabinet back allow for further customization to create individual elements of style or a collage of complimentary pieces. Brand new additions to the collection include Wall*nut Mirror –- a Wall*nut cabinet with a mirrored back -– and Wall*nut Catchall -– a long, horizontal cabinet with an optional sliding door with water jet cut design and built-in charging station.
A portmanteau of walnut and utopia, this brand new furniture line lives up to the name. It features two unique 18”x18” side tables -– book-matched or asymmetrical -– and a 24”x24” quadrant. The soft, swirling patterns of walnut and the gently rounded solid walnut corners bring warmth to the collection’s cube shapes. Optional silkscreened designs and bamboo plywood drawers offer a dramatic accent to each piece.
