Stunning Monteverdi-Young Cabinets

Juan brought back the pair of Monteverdi-Young Cabinets that I posted about last week. And they are fantastic. Juan has the perfect touch when it comes to furniture restoration (or fabrication)--only the tops needed to be refreshed and a small hole (drilled for cables) on the backs repaired. He has the patience and knowledge to perfectly match and restore a surface and that is an invaluable talent in this business.

This chest has all of the bells and whistle required of a mid-century cabinet: the proportions are perfect, there are hints of its asian influence, the custom brass work is original, showy and well-detailed and THERE IS A PAIR OF THESE GUYS. Plus the chests are multi-purpose and can be used in a variety of way....even lined up as a buffet.

Just going to add a few more detailed photos. Jones really likes them (at least his nose does). 


The inlaid bras filament is characteristic of American made mid-century furniture. Juan very slightly polished the brass strip without damaging the surface.

The custom hardware is beefy without being cumbersome or out of proportion.

The Glitch is rearing its ugly head again. Ooops, I think that I just overcame it.
I'm not sure what (if anything) I'm doing wrong, but this software is not Mary-friendly. I've got to go back to Nathan to see what is not happening.
So I had best sign off.

Thanks for sharing my journey.
