Inspired by a classic antique three-tiered Chinese cabinet which is part of Charl van Heerden personal collection of global treasures, Charl's Bamboo range is designed for the modern home with recognition and respect to traditional craftsmanship.
The stunning Bamboo range features a reclaimed elmwood frame; sourced from old farmhouses and bleached to create a soft, light raw wood tone finish.
The bamboo slats door design embraces traditional craftsmanship and features original mortise and tenon joinery, as well as using methods which connect the frame and door without the use of modern hinges.
Each piece of the Bamboo range represents a section of the antique three-tiered Chinese cupboard in Charl’s home. While the traditional Chinese kitchen cabinet was designed to circulate air around fruits and vegetables without letting in light and the lower compartments housed domestic chickens, the Bamboo range seamlessly fits in to contemporarily environments.
Wonderfully pure and simple in construction, the organic and earthy design of the Bamboo range will bring a subtle degree of difference to any space.
Please note that this range is handmade from vintage elmwood and therefore shows signs of wear and tear, marks, inconsistencies and imperfections. We consider this part of their charm and the natural beauty of the wood. These are not seen as faults or flaws but rather signs of their history and appeal.
