This retro Herbert E. Gibbs glazed bookcase/cabinet was very tired and suffering from various dings and dents when it arrived at Percy & Albert Interiors. The piece has been painted using Fusion Mineral Paint 'Oakham' - a contemporary bronzey-grey, a true 'multi-tonal' colour, looking bronze, grey or both in different lights.
It has been paired with a designer wallpaper which makes a bold statement and helps to 'detract and distract from the boxy right angles of the entire piece. A sure way to add a focal point to any interior.
The top section has one glass shelf – adjustable by three positions. Plus two glazed sliding doors (please note these have some very minor/superficial chips on the edge). The glazed doors can be easily removed if an open-fronted cabinet is prefered/desired.
A mains-powered, warm white LED strip light has been installed which is controllable by remote control (included) or an inline switch and is also dimmable.
The bottom cupboard consists of two walnut veneer doors which slide open and have been sealed with Osmo oil.
Pictured/styled as a drinks cabinet but would work equally well as a storage solution for a home office, bedroom, or bookcase.
This is not a brand-new piece of furniture. This item has had a previous life and has some minor imperfections commensurate with its age and has typical 'wear and tear'. It has been restored and refinished by hand so please expect a high-quality finish rather than a machine finish.
