What Have We Here ?
Composed of timeless, hardwood oak and fine brass hardware, this piece transports us to the 1920s when it was produced and began its utilitarian journey. A unique marriage between a filing cabinet and printing cabinet, it’s clear this was a trusted work of furniture with much functionality that still serves to this day. We love imagining the important documents and novel supplies of different decades that it used to store. This 1900s oak multi-drawer cabinet was originally used in a lawyer’s office in Clifton Park, NY in the 1920s. Upon its second phase of life, this cabinet was used in a local electorate’s office. We can only imagine the conversations this piece must have heard behind the scenes!
How to Use It ?
True in its name, this office cabinet is the answer for many of your workspace needs. Its many drawers are perfect for supplies, whether it be office, art, or even in the kitchen. The handy desk surface is easily accessible and able to be pulled out whenever needed for a space-saving functional touch. We also encourage creativity with this cabinet’s use, for example we imagine it in an entryway holding all of life’s daily necessities in an attractive yet tidy and timeless way.
Why It Matters ?
This academic fixture has spent its many lives right here in New York. Sustainability isn’t just about the materials used in constructing a work of furniture, it also involves keeping products local to avoid both unnecessary emissions and potential damage incurred during transportation.
