This cherry-and-ash cabinet was designed in collaboration with Sandra Ramsey Assoc. The clients presented a poor photocopy of a case that had a silver, corduroy-like surface. On the shallow flutes of Patrick’s interpretation, he eliminated tarnishing issues by substituting palladium leaf for silver leaf. The ash borders around the doors and aprons are ebonized, and the rest of the piece is finished with CAB (cellulose acetate butyrate) lacquer.
