I designed this cabinet to utilize an awkward trapezoidal space next to a duct work chase in an 1890s Queen Anne. The cabinet’s casing matches the door and window trim in the home’s formal rooms, featuring chip-carved vines and fluted columns. Client Richard Harter made the two vertical columns on the cabinet’s sides himself, shaping and carving the corner blocks as part of a large-scale restoration. The rest of the work is by NR Hiller Design. Doves and petunias on the frieze recall the clients’ front porch in summer.
