Flame Mahogany Tallboy Chest on Chest of Drawers in Renfrew Blue and Coal Black

Art Deco Flame Mahogany Chest on Chest of Drawers / Tallboy in Renfrew Blue, Coal Black and Solid Brass Handles - 1920s


Introducing 'Laurence', a mesmerising Chest on Chest of Drawers / Tallboy from 1920s, which has been fully restored and renovated, yet preserving its magnificent features and charm.


The wood used for this masterpiece is Flame Mahogany. In case you don't know, Flame Mahogany is a term used for Mahogany that has been cut at a joint or “crotch” where a branch protrudes from the main tree trunk. The result is a visual pattern that resembles waves or flames. Because it is rare, flame mahogany is precious and extremely valuable.


Laurence has been fully restored, initially by carefully sanding in order to reveals the incredible grain you can see in the photographs - trust me, it looks even nicer in person! The wood was then treated with a selective combination of oils and waxes, which not only nourishes the wood but also gives it a fantastic lustre and appearance.


The main colour used for Laurence was Renfrew Blue, by Fusion Mineral Paint, although I decided to combine it with Coal Black, also by FMP, in order to create a frame for the Flame Mahogany and accentuate the darken tones seen on the grain. The black was also used to paint the top frame, the in order to give the piece a bolder and more sophisticated presence. This masterpiece contains 8 extremely spacious drawers, all very well-built and featuring solid Mahogany dovetail joints. The original and intricate solid brass handles have been fully restored too, although respecting and preserving their original patina which accentuates its incredibly rich details. 


I hope you will agree that 'Laurence' is the perfect addition to any room. Its colours, features and details manage to connect both past and present, and will enrich any home, without a doubt - will it be yours?!
