A work of art in motion – the Cunard Cabinet by Waters & Acland

Cunard Cabinet by Waters & Acland
We are sharing this with you simply because this is so beautiful – and such an amazing piece of furniture. By the remarkably talented Waters and Acland , based in the English Lake District, made for a client who was nostalgic for the glamorous days of old style cruising, their Cunard Cabinet is special for many reasons.

Cunard Cabinet by Waters & Acland

Yes, the marquetry Art Deco style illustration is lovely, and beautifully executed, it certainly warrants a closer look.

But it is what happens when you open the tambour door, made up of over 200 vertical strips that makes this one of the few occasions when a video about a piece of furniture is really justified.

We have no doubt that you will be hearing a great deal more about Waters and Acland, on Modenus and elsewhere.

Tim Bogan

Before he became Modenus’s eyes and ears in Europe, Tim Bogan was a communications professional working for commercial, government and not-for profit sectors. A journalist in the days before spell-checkers and digital anything his work was published in numerous publications the more respectable of which includes Time Out and the London based Observer. Tim was in at the ground floor with Modenus and BlogTour and continues to contribute whenever he can be dragged away from his search for the perfect recipe for pistachio gelato.
