Robust Travail Populaire Alpin Cabinet - circa 1800
Robust art populaire Alpin cabinet made from solid wood in Suisse, circa 1800. This organic travail populaire cabinet provides sufficient space to store and display various items. Would be ideal as a closet in a bedroom or hallway, providing a touch of authenticity and a warm atmosphere. Characteristic features of this wabi-sabi cabinet are the subtle drawings on the wood and the detailed hinges. The way this piece is closed is quite remarkable, as there is no doorknob or handle. The door can only be opened and closed by moving a small wooden element over the doorframe.
With its remarkable patina, the design reminds us of the wabi-sabi philosophy which centres around the appreciation of the beauty of natural imperfection. The idea involves the understanding that everything ages with grace, and becomes more beautiful as it breaks, fades, or scars. It is the understanding that old and worn out things have their own elegant charm. The simplicity of the lines, combined with its remarkable woodworking and craftsmanship, will allow this Suisse cabinet to bring a touch of authenticity to any home. Would fit well in a rustic minimal Axel Vervoordt inspired interior. This piece is in good original condition and reflects a warm and cosy feeling, ideal to give your interior extra character.
