Finished in a combination of grey and slate grey sycamore, alongside polished nickel and shagreen, The Hanbury Cabinet showcases DAVIDSON’s knack for pairing different textures to arresting effect.
The Hanbury Cabinet could persuade any style-conscious homeowner of the power of grey to convey elegance and a thoroughly contemporary cool. One of interior design’s favourite and most versatile of shades, grey is an easy colour to integrate into a room scheme and is especially captivating when paired with bold and bright accents. Employ colours like hot pink, cherry red, or electric blue to really elevate your interior in the style stakes. Or you might opt for a smart minimalism with a monochrome palette.
Meanwhile, polished nickel and shagreen demonstrate silver’s power to create a mood of luxury and opulence in a way that feels modern, light, and fresh. The nickel is sleek and sophisticated while the shagreen delivers retro glam. The overall result showcases DAVIDSON’s innovative design thinking and ability to create pieces that are at once timeless and ahead of their time.
Tactile and sumptuous, the different finishes unite here to create a piece that is modern but with a retro edge. While the sycamore feels cool, classic, and understated, the combination of polished nickel and shagreen adds a silver shimmer that instantly refreshes an interior. The contrast of textures adds dynamism and intrigue, while the silver brings a charismatic daring to a room that is otherwise neutral and restrained.
Shagreen, especially - with its scale-like surface - is an unusual but dazzling choice. The material has long been considered the pinnacle of sophistication, popular during the Art Deco period. Here it receives a 21st century update, and, paired with the understated sycamore and sophisticated polished nickel, makes for a truly unique combination.
As with any DAVIDSON design, The Hanbury can be delivered in a finish of your choice.
The radial design of the doors draws the eye to the centre where we find the show-stealing nickel and shagreen handles. Meanwhile, the darker sycamore creates a border-like effect that frames and amplifies this exquisite design.
Alongside such luxurious materials, the form of The Hanbury has been kept simple, sleek, and restrained. Straight lines and sharp angles allow the technical skill and stunning materials to occupy centre stage.
