Andrew Dominic grew up in Devon, England, benefitting from early exposure to carpentry and sailing through his father. His love of the sea led him to the Mediterranean, where he sailed during the summer months and honed his carpentry skills during the off-season by refitting classic yachts. Now resident in Cape Town via the renowned David Savage Atelier in North Devon, he continues to produce works known for their precision and uncompromising dedication to detail.
The Noah Drinks Cabinet is a recent piece in his signature range. In ebonised American oak, it has a strong yet quiet presence with its subtle curve to the door fronts and central circular detail reminiscent of ancient Eastern furniture. The handcrafted detailing to the cabinet feet and side panels are distinctive trademarks of Andrew Dominic furniture. The cabinet features pocket sliding doors; large circular finger pull door handles; interior LED lighting with door-activated sensors; an extendable bar shelf with glass top; adjustable glass shelves and wine glass racks. The interior layout can also incorporate a two bottle deep wine rack with capacity for a maximum 120 bottles.
The Noah Armoire is a refinement of the Noah design that incorporates a subtle, sweeping curve to the front of the piece and elegantly handcrafted feet. This minimalist, three door wardrobe in solid European birch is beautifully detailed, right down to the interior aromatic cedar wood backing. It features push-to-open doors (two of which are pocket sliding); full height hanging space, shelving and fitted shoe drawers with vents.
Both the Noah Drinks Cabinet and Noah Armoire are available in solid American walnut, oak, ash or birch sourced from sustainably managed forests in North America or Europe.
