The taste of talent: Edna by Anthony Hartley.

Three drawer chestOn the subject of furniture as art, I promised last week to take another look at the work of Anthony Hartley who is a talented designer and maker of furniture with an irreverence for tradition. Edna, the enigmatic name of the range featured here, is as surprising and tantalizing as a strange but beautiful cake created by a master in the art. It looks good enough to eat.

Edna comes as a three drawer unit with a painted cabinet, or a one drawer unit with an oak cabinet. The drawers themselves are built-up from high gloss layers and are as funky inside as out. The colour scheme shown is from 2011 but you could have your own colours for a bespoke look. The splayed legs are common to both models, but in different colours. They lift the chest physically, but also into the realm of the art piece.
