ImageWe were commissioned by Hotel de Ville to reproduce this antique display case. Hotel de Ville is a purveyor of fine vintage and antique eye-wear . With three stores in Los Angeles they need lots of ways to show their goods. I have built them quite a few cases over the years, starting with the original store on Rosewood. I met them when I was working next door at HUNDREDS and accidentally drilled through the wall. We’ve been friends ever since…Image

     

Xavier has a very distinctive style. He found the original case at a flea market. It’s an old sewing store case that has lost all it’s drawers. We made a reproduction in African Mahogany which will, over time,  take on a lovely patina. It holds 96 pairs of glasses and spins around so it’s fun to look for the right pair…
