The Michel Buffet, designed by Sally Sirkin Lewis, was influenced by the stylish, clean work of Jean Michel Frank. Born in Paris during the 19th Century Frank was revered for his minimalist interior design, punctuated by plain-lined luxury furniture.

Lewis recreates the essence of Franks’ designs with her Michael Buffet cabinet wrapped in cowhide. The cowhide technique referred to by J. Robert Scott as “Pointilist” is employed to capture the embossed surface texture and maintain tactility.

The cerused legs and reveals are shown in J. Robert Scotts new ‘Silvered Bronze’ finish with the cabinets four-doors concealing the lacquered interior and shelving of the same silvered bronze.

The Michel Buffet is a piece that is as practical as it is chic and can be customised and proportioned to suit a variety of locations and uses. As with all products within the J. Robert Scott bespoke range, a number of additional finishing are available.
