Present at London Craft Week, the Once Upon a Time Cabinet is inspired by the oriental vibe, there’s nothing more authentic in Asian art than porcelain. Once Upon a Time is a cabinet crafted with precious floral and colorful details, a garden full of Paeonia flowers, where two mythic Chinese birds live. These sacred birds, known as Chinese phoenixes, represent the masculine and the feminine side of a soul and are painted in shades of blue, pink, yellow and green. Inside, the stunning cabinet is coated with blue suede and mirror.
