Jim Rose Legacy Collection - 18 Drawer Shaker Inspired Steel Seed Cabinet

US$24,500

About

This exquisite seed cabinet is inspired by Shaker furniture. Eighteen drawers of varying sizes make up this fully functioning steel cabinet by renowned furniture maker Jim Rose. With its timeless simplicity, this Shaker piece can stand on its own or help to complement a more eclectic design setting. As well as being utilitarian with all of its storage possibilities, it is a truly stunning piece of art. Jim Rose Legacy Collection 18 drawer seed cabinet found steel with natural rust patina Measures: 22.50 H x 36 W x 10 D in 57.15 H x 91.44 W x 25.40 D cm JR0221 Jim Rose b. 1966 Bio Born in Indiana, Jim Rose lived in Europe until he returned to the United States to attend college. After one year at Bard College, Jim transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (SAIC) where he graduated in 1988 with a BFA. His skillful interpretation of the Shaker design is a result of intense research and field study of Shaker furniture, architecture, culture and history. After over two decades of dedicated work, he has mastered the minimalism of the Shaker technique and created his own unique visual vernacular. The quilts of Gee's Bend have become a monumental influence taking this artist's work to new levels of unique interpretation and artistry. His selection of aged steel results in a patina directly related to that of aged wood while his colored strips beautifully mimic worn cloth. Each piece of furniture is masterfully made and intended for daily use. Jim Rose’s steel furniture is featured every year at SOFA Chicago for the past 25 years.
