Custom Large Chrome Cabinet by Steve Chase from Chase Designed Home, circa 1980Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with this monumental chrome cabinet by Steve Chase. Recently procured from an extraordinary coastal cliff top home in Laguna Beach which was custom designed in it's entirety by prolific Southern California based designer Steve Chase.
Work on the house began in the early 1980s and was expanded and completed by the end of that decade. Chase performed as the interior designer as well as being involved through the construction phase from start to finish. Every piece of furniture, built-in cabinetry, millwork, hearth and shelving was custom made to fit precisely to the home, featuring a generous amount of lucite, which Chase was well known for incorporating in his work, including an impressive three inch thick solid lucite banister running up a curved stairwell. The owners developed a close friendship with Chase and they travelled together on numerous occasions.
This impressive custom made chrome cabinet was originally part of the exquisite master suite, which as you can see in the photos provided, was uniquely Chase. This piece embodies Chase's signature design aesthetic, as described in his own words; deliberate, unexpected and with touch of humor. Featuring use of moulded chrome with two recessed lights that cast down onto the shelving compartment below. There are various cupboards with shelving options inside and one contains a pull out which could be utilized as a laptop shelf, television or trouser press or ironing board.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with this time honored cabinet you can regale about to your guests for years to come. This slick storage piece can be used in a living room, games room, family room, den, master suite or office. It would also be an apt choice for stowing away supplies, linens and other paraphernalia in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel, restaurant waiting area, cocktail bar, members club, high end salon, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
