Intriguing Sculptural Cabinets: Elegant Possession and The Gatekeeper
Wood artist Ramon Gibbs shared two of his remarkable furniture designs with us. The two projects below rank high in originality, as well as in practicability. Elegant Possession is a delicately sculpted cabinet built of maple and accented with walnut. The design features five normal drawers (plus a secret one) resting on six small but sturdy feet. Its undulating lines make it interesting to observe in detail.
The Gatekeeper is an intricately detailed four drawer show stopper featuring Sycamore accented with Osage orange. The project features a sculpted hutch with suspended shelves and the grace of three pencil point Queen Ann style legs. Both the items go great in an eclectic setting and don’t be surprised if they will soon turn out to be the highlight of the room. How would you comment on the two furniture items? Which one do you prefer and why? [photos and information provided via e-mail by Ramon Gibbs]
