Silverlining: Parabolic
Founded in the UK by furniture maker Mark Boddington, Silverlining focuses on innovation through material experimentation and excellent finishing. Its Parabolic Cabinet explores sculptural shapes and how they can be transformed for a piece of furniture that is both functional and intriguing. The cabinet is sized to be used as a sideboard at 1300 wide by 500 deep by 900 mm high, with a gently curving top. Its material thickness is a mere 12 mm to keep its structure slim yet robust. Made from oxidised cedar with folded Damascus steel hinges and catch, its textured grain invites touch.

BoConcept: Copenhagen
Danish furniture company BoConcept’s inhouse designer Morten Georgsen believes that simplicity and functionality are integral to every piece of furniture. His concept for Copenhagen is flexibility. Not everyone has the same requirements, and Copenhagen addresses the need for open versus closed storage. Its console and wall units combine drawers and closed storage in opaque and translucent finishes, while its open shelves come in a variety of widths and heights to suit everything from books to objets d’art. With stylish looks such as walnut veneer, matte bronze green lacquer and smoke coloured glass, you’re bound to find a look to complement your décor.

Indigo Living: Gold Stencil Cabinet
An exclusive design for Indigo Living, Gold Stencil Cabinet references traditional Chinese wedding cabinets yet gives them a contemporary update. Its doors are decorated with a retro style leaf design hand painted in gold by artisans, giving each a one of a kind uniqueness. Within the cabinet, a handy drawer is combined with two open shelves. The black lacquer cabinet rests on slender legs that merge with a rectangular base, to contrast with the curvilinear lines of the leaf motif. Gold Stencil Cabinet works well as a strong statement for a dining room’s sideboard or as a stand alone feature in foyers.
