Every now and then, you will stumble across a product that stops you in your tracks[G1] . For me, this armoire from Alexander Lamont is one of those products. This extremely elegant piece takes inspiration from the idea of light beneath the ocean. Parchment covers the surface giving it a quite fragile and weathered look.
The patterns that make up the patina almost look like coral and have a slightly wild and natural feel to them whilst being completely handmade. The result is an elegant cabinet that would work well in many places.
Made especially for the piece, the highlight of the armoire is, of course, the handles; they are simply stunning. I am especially excited about this piece as it is from a Thai company that we will be visiting at the end of the year – I cannot wait to see all their gorgeous products in-the-flesh!
These handles were commissioned especially for this armoire. They give the feeling that the octopus is almost trying to break through the cabinet from the inside out. They really are jaw-dropping even if you are not a huge fan of octopus.
