This stunningly reimagined drinks cabinet is the epitome of refined elegance.


It’s breathtakingly beautiful and completely unique.

“Alouette”, meaning “Lark”, features a central, antique walnut cabinet with 2 doors, that open to reveal the original mirror to the back of the piece.  A curved shelf, with a guard, protects your bottles and glassware, and the original cocktail picks are now cleaned and refinished.

Beneath the cabinet are two drawers for extra storage, and the addition of an LED light makes this piece as practical as it is beautiful.

The whole piece sits atop charming, cabriolet-shaped legs, that have been finished in a neutral shade with gold features, perhaps looking as if they could dance the “can-can” at the drop of a hat!

There is just so much to admire about this cabinet, from the walnut burr wood, to the dark wax and gold leaf detailing that highlights the carvings.

The simply stunning choice of Chinoiserie paper panels, with the tiny songbirds, soft pink petals, and delicate leaves, does more than merely “decorate” the cabinet.  This paper beautifies it, and the hand-painted details add an element of beauty.


The interior has been refurbished in a delicate vintage palette of pale blue, and the wooden drawers have been finished with a specialist furniture salve that smells divine.

All the original hardware has been refreshed in a darkened gold shade, and the cabinet is lockable with a key.  The whole piece is finished with a beautiful Chinese-themed lock and key plate and silk tassel.


The cabinet is truly mesmerising, everywhere you look there is something to feast your eyes on. An absolutely gorgeous piece that would look amazing in your dining or family room. 


From “The Lark Ascending” by George Meredith

For singing till his heaven fills,
’T is love of earth that he instils,
And ever winging up and up,
Our valley is his golden cup,

My prices include delivery to most mainline UK addresses/postcodes, but if you are unsure, please get in touch.

These pieces are sold as Vintage, refurbished items. As such I have made every attempt to bring them back to their former glory without detracting from, or changing the essence of, the piece.  In some cases, there may be some small signs of its previous life, which adds to its charm and authenticity, but please be assured all pieces are sold structurally sound and ready for their new home.

If you would like further pictures, details, history, or any other information then please make contact.

I would be delighted to provide insight into my processes and materials or any other helpful information.
