rupert blanchard vs. finn juhl

i found six odd drawers at a market the other week, damaged and dirty but i recognised the well made solid teak construction with cast aluminium handles as being designed by Finn Juhl as a part of his 1970s 'diplomat' range. the drawers would have once been an element in a modular shelving and storage system but as there is very little chance that i would ever find any more of the system. i decided to re-finish the drawers and turn them into a matching pair of bedside or sofa-side lamp tables/cabinets. the new framework is made from plywood with a soft satin finish and lacquered steel bases.
