Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the Boutique Design New York show in NYC. Yes, it was another show at Javits but this one was a bit different as it catered to the hotel industry. That intrigued me because I have been to some marvelous hotels and often wondered where they get their products and inspiration from.
As I was walking around, this cabinet from Shimna caught my eye. It stood out as a statement piece that combined local resources and classic-with-a-twist design. I like how it has beautiful wood, brass hardware and amber glass insets. I LOVE how the company is ALL local: shop (created in Brooklyn), grown (wood grown in Pennsylvania), built (built by hand) and lives (storefront in NYC). Plus they had it paired with a modern, yellow-green wall and it worked.
This tall cabinet is a contemporary decorative storage unit that evokes elements of a turn of the century card file with a leg system reminiscent of Edwardian furniture. The piece features amber glass insets and custom-made brass hardware. While this version is show in walnut, other locally-sourced hardwoods are aslo available.

I really like it for a hallway or dining room where it accents a small wall space with its unique look but beautifully practical storage. Trying to find a space for it pronto!
