Gustavian Spirit

The dreamy Gustavian style is characterised by elegant antiques and a serene white color scheme. The traditional furniture is painted in shades of white and grey pastels, complete with a weathered patina. The bright interiors create a feeling of serenity and chic simplicity. With its pure and refined feel, the interior style continues to be relevant in a modern-day world.

The Story behind this cupboard:
This characteristic cloth-cabinet is based on a 17th century model. These cupboards were originally used to keep the nice broadcloth.

The piece is constructed and carved by hand and is hand-painted and treated for an antiqued timeless look. The carving reveals an intricately detailed floral pattern, where rows of leaves join together in a small carved bouquet at the top of the grand pediment.

Cloth was not what we today know as cotton or linen. It was a wool derivate that first was woven en then felted making it stronger than felt and warmer than woven fabric as cotton. In Medieval times cloth was a wide-used material for clothing, making it an important industry in both England and the Low Countries. As a precious material it was kept in exquisite cabinets, worthy of the fine textile.

We have just received this cabinet which is now prominently located in our Houston showroom and we reserved several more. They were ordered a long time ago as they are very hard to get. There is another CloClo & Rino container scheduled to depart Europe this month heading to the USA and we can add one or more if interested.

Regular showroom price is $7,900 but if you order one to be added in the container the price is $6,715 (discounted as we don’t need to unpack and pay for storage fees).
