Circles and Stripes Sideboard

Chris was very pleased to have the opportunity to work on this sideboard with the contemporary marquetary artist Christine Meyer-Eaglestone. Christine originally trained in fine art and sculpture, only later discovering marquetry. All her work is hand cut, allowing her to develop a design organically using a vast selection of veneers as her palette. Christine prides herself on the precision of her work and the fact that every piece she makes is unique.

On this piece Christine created the marquetry panels and laid them onto boards. Chris then cut and mitred the panels to create the two inverted "L" shapes. The six walnut fronted drawers have oak linings with hand cut dovetails and cedar of Lebanon bottoms; a beautiful aroma of cedar wafts out when the drawers are opened.

A truly unique and striking piece. We are planning further pieces in the "Opposites" series so watch this space!

Materials: Various natural, coloured and man made veneers, american walnut, quarter sawn oak, cedar of lebanon.

Dimensions: 1700mm wide, 530mm deep, 880mm high

Price: Around £6,500. Bear in mind each piece is unique so we cannot give a precise price.
