The collection of Carson storage units features a minimal, modern design aesthetic, expressed in a combination of luxurious materials. The result is stunning visual and tactile effects – the stark nobility of bronzed metal and the timeless allure of marble play counterpoint to the poetic substance of the Sucupira. The structure is in MDF with Sucupira wood veneer stained Mink color. The sides rest on the floor and are made of Light Bronze satin-finished metal. The Carson storage units are available in an array of configurations that serve various practical needs, with the option of being placed in different rooms in the home: from the entry to the living room.
The Carson storage elements owe their refined elegance to a combination of materials that produces surprising effects. The drawer fronts and drop-front door are full thickness to highlight the poetic substance of the wood.
The Carson collection includes elements custom-designed to fulfill different functional needs - from the console designed to enhance the entry, all the way up to the sideboard “dining”, the dining room buffet and a vertical cabinet.
The drawers are fitted with push-pull mechanism, while the elements with drop-front doors are equipped with an interior LED bar light with motion sensor activated by the door’s opening and closing mechanism. The interiors of the drop-front door elements are finished in Corten color glossy lacquer, a tasteful note that reveals the attention paid to every construction detail, even the most out-of-sight.
