This gorgeous chest of drawers is the embodiment of all that DAVIDSON stands for: peerless craftsmanship, timeless design and irrefutable sophistication.
From the radial pattern on the top to the perfectly-executed construction of the drawers, the Clarence is a testament to the superb quality of a DAVIDSON design and the exceptional technical skills of our craftsmen.
Elegance with just a hint of glamour is the essence of the Clarence, which, with its silky sycamore tones, would sit perfectly in a sumptuous boudoir. Favouring the sweeping curves of a cylindrical shape over the harsh lines and strict angles of most contemporary designs, the Clarence reinterprets a more traditional silhouette and makes it something unique and timeless.
Team with a playful accent ̶ an unusual vase or quirky sculpture ̶ to bring a whimsicality to the look. Or, a set of three small circular dishes, echoing the form of the chest itself, could hold trinkets and essentials.
A unique combination of pearl-grey sycamore and Macassar ebony creates a colour palette that is unconventional yet feels classic. The former is inspired by the hue of a white South Sea pearl and has the same exotic lustre. In comparison, the Macassar ebony offers a rich, handsome aesthetic ̶ the perfect counterpoint. Along with the metallic glint of the polished nickel, the overall effect is utterly compelling.
The radial pattern to the chest top, yet again proof of DAVIDSON’s impeccable craftsmanship, is the most gorgeous of finishing touches, a celebration of the natural material, as well as traditional craft techniques.
DAVIDSON is delighted to be able to to provide a custom service and the Clarence is available in a finish of your choosing, according to your design preference and desired look.
With its cylindrical form, the Clarence offers an elegant surface on which to showcase your most treasured trinkets and ornaments. Its appeal lies in its smooth curves, which are gentle on the eye and the ideal complement to a room with similarly-mellow edges. Alternatively, for geometric contrast and punch, you might consider positioning it alongside more contemporary pieces with sharp lines and angles.
The handles are finished here in a gleaming polished nickel, the final tone in a palette of distinct and beautiful colours and textures. DAVIDSON also offers the option of handles finished in brass or bronze, either polished or brushed, for an alternative look and mood.
The interior of the drawers is tinted to match the primary finish of the exterior. A similar seamlessness is created by the soft-close runners, enabling a sleek functionality.
