Set of 4 Pedestal Boxes in Shagreen, Shell and Bronze-Patina Brass by Kifu Paris

$1,840per set

About the Item

The set of 4 pedestal boxes are the perfect home accents to add elegance and functionality to your space. These can be used as a vanity set for your bathroom, in your office to store desk accessories or as decorative objects. From left to right; these boxes are inlaid in denim blue shagreen, cream shagreen, black pen shell and cream shagreen. Each box has a bronze-patina brass knob and lined with wood veneer. Option to purchase these boxes individually available on request. The dimensions of these pieces are from left to right: Denim blue shagreen canister: 5.25 x 3.25 x 5.75'' Large round cream shagreen box: 5 x 3.75 x 5" Small round black pen shell box: 4.25 x 3 x 4" Long rectangle cream shagreen box: 4 x 8 x 3.38" All Kifu Paris pieces are handmade by artisans, ultimately making each piece unique. Custom color/sizing available on request. Wipe clean with soft dry cloth. Although inspired by her parents, her collection of Home Accessories and Furniture is a distinct identity of its own. Kifu uses handmade techniques of elaborate inlay patterns of shagreen, shells, semi-precious stones, materials she experienced as a child growing up in her parent’s studio, but interpreted in a younger quirkier way reflecting her youth. From her "jewelry inspired knobs" on decorative boxes, gold bar boxes and an extravagant inlay pattern mix of shagreen and shell inspired by galactic constellations, as seen on her enormous round mirror, is refreshing to see. Kifu embodies whimsical elements throughout her collection and is not afraid to be daring and unexpected in her approach to design. All shagreen-covered items should be kept out of direct sunlight, color variants may occur on the stingray and other exotic finishes, but this showcases the Parisian label's commitment to creating authentic luxurious products using natural components.

About the Seller
4.8
Located in New York, NY

Founded in 1989 by husband and wife Ria and Yiouri Augousti, this maker combines Art Deco and contemporary design in furniture and home-accessory collections as well as sculptural objects. From their flagship store on Paris’s rue du Bac, the Augoustis work closely with customers, including globally famous interior designers, architects and celebrities, to create custom pieces for their homes and projects. Although the use of shagreen is their signature, they have also pioneered patterns that mix this and other exotic materials with shells, parchment, eel skin, semiprecious stones, snakeskin and metal. Following in their footsteps, the Augoustis’ daughter recently opened a showroom in New York called KIFU PARIS, which carries the R&Y Augousti collection; her fiancé’s sculptural candle collection, Patrick Coard Paris; and her own furniture and home accessories.
