This is Stil Novo Design’s exclusive solid white oak cabinet/bench.
The top seat and the legs are made with recycled oak from fermentation barrels.
Our Golden Gate is a perfect combination of practicality, comfort and sophistication;
Although it was conceived as a shoe cabinet, it's actually perfect to accommodate many other types of storing and organizing needs and it can be integrated in any room of the house as a unique and handy piece of home décor.
By using the natural arch of a stave from a hefty fermentation barrel, we are able to create this particularly smooth and ‘silky’ silhouette for the top seat and legs, while we use regular oak for the creation of the structure and inner shelf.
The outside of the cabinet is finished with a beautiful natural golden oak color, and the inner side and shelf with a rich cherry chocolate finish to complement the red wine staining of the underside of the staves.
The Golden Gate measurements are about 40”X15” (top) and 20” height
(Each barrel stave is different so the size is approximate).
The solid wood of an oak wine or fermentation barrel has a very distinctive element of charm that is conveyed into every object we create.
Every individual barrel carries the signs of its unique history in every stave.
As no barrel band is the same, each piece might show natural imperfections, slight variations in color, grain & dimensions, all adding to the uniqueness of every item.
Each one is individually handcrafted, sanded back to its original wood and creatively reinvented.
Stil Novo’s philosophy has always been “Artistry and attention to detail".
We are a family business dedicated to create the highest quality woodcrafts and specialty pieces.
We love the fact that we are able to help the environment by recycling the raw material and to turn it into an object of ‘practical elegance’ at the same time.
We welcome your requests for customized orders, special commissions and personalized ideas.More
