This piece was custom made for a customer of mine that was designed by Robert Griffin, a architect and designer in Asheville, and I.This Greene and Greene style piece was built in Sapele and Ebony with a dye stain and a hand rubbed lacquer finish. The Greene and Greene Style Corner Cabinet is based on Greene and Greene design ,but there are some custom things about the cabinet that separate it from a traditional Greene and Greene piece.

This looks more ornate than most of the Green and green stuff I see. I like this one I don’t normally like green and green stuff. This one speaks to me . 5 out of 5 stars Nice job.

It looks fantastic. Is that a drawer in between the two cupboards?

It just does not get any better than this! The look, the wood and the finish could not be any better. I am envious.

You should be very proud! Excellent craftsmanship! I want to do more Greene & Greene pieces . The light fixture in the front hall of the Gamble house has caught my eye …...

A truly beautiful piece. Love the corbels and arched corners on the upper doors. Fine example of attention to detail
