Brighton-based Claire Potter Design recently completed work on this beautiful blue DOVER cabinet, which is made from three separate desks and cabinets which were purchased in a true second-hand state from a local charity shop. The desks were trimmed, adjusted, and combined by the studio to create a single, four-meter-long cabinet. Long bar handles and 100% recycled paint from Newlife paints unify the cabinet, which was also wrapped in locally reclaimed, scrubbed scaffold boards to create a soft yet utilitarian styled piece of furniture. The DOVER cabinet has proved very popular – so much so that the studio is now offering a similar ‘rescue and reinvent’ service for clients’ otherwise overlooked furniture.
