Referencing the innate creativity of classic luxury handcrafted design, the Islington Collection perceives the timeless appeal of traditional furniture making from a more intricately detailed perspective. Contrasting with the handsome appeal of heavy moulded door detail, wall cabinetry takes on a refined, delicate, almost fragile appearance, punctuating the solid lines of tall cabinetry and reflecting light, with exquisite vintage overtones adding to its air of sophistication, decadence and glamour. Custom designed cocktail cabinets with mirrored interiors add to the appeal and unique artistry
