Regia Batik Cabinets Take a Third Empire Aesthetic

I absolutely love the way that these Regia Batik Cabinets bring together a chic and colorful contemporary aesthetic with a sophisticated historical architectural motif. This compelling cabinetry collection turns the image of stone vermiculation into a dynamic abstract pattern for each door.

The bright glossy veneers exude exquisite detail, inspired by the elaborate carving of masonry to mimic the grooves in the ground created by worms. The design has been used to adorn the bases of classically influenced buildings for hundreds of years, only to be reintroduced as decoration within the modern domestic setting as Regia Batik Cabinets.

Implications - Historical forms have a way of repeating themselves with reignited interest. Designers can always trust to be inspired by historical motifs when conceiving fresh notions of aesthetics.
