Our Malachite Drinks Chest doubles up as an elegant side table. It is made with our new malachite finish, exquisite solid brass detail and lined in a gorgeous colourful striped engineered veneer. The side table has a deep space storage and a removable sliding drawer to hold a variety of bottles and glasses.
Malachite is a very special stone because it has amazing patterns in deep and pale greens. There is a long tradition of combining malachite with gilt metal or gold. The rich and powerful of the world have been have been using this malachite and gilt combination for millenniums.
Craftsmen and artists have also been creating faux malachite products for centuries to recreate luxury of the real stone. For example the traditional method to do this is by painting malachite like swirls in different shades of green. Eventually a few very ago I worked out a method of creating a really realistic faux malachite using photography. As you can see from this drinks chest, the results are amazing.
We love to combine the Malachite Drinks Chest with our Alexandra Malachite Round Mirror for a truly luxurious effect. Indeed the chest is a real statement piece that will fit comfortably in any contemporary living space
