In late 2011, I was contacted to design a pink dining piece for a creative Chelsea family. I decided the best way to achieve optimal function/form was to do a play on a traditional breakfront cabinet. My design inspiration drew from Chippendale & Federal style breakfronts. Slightly raised off the floor, I paired a traditional crown with cabriole legs. I then added stainless silver detail, slightly antiqued mirror and high gloss lacquer.
