We love this waste paper bin so much; all chunky black, gold and white geometrics, it’s simple but it’s so striking and it makes us think of 20s Vogue covers or The Great Gatsby. It’s the kind of waste paper bin Dorothy Parker would toss discarded pages of writing into. It looks gorgeous paired up with dark woods that make that gold really pop out into the room. This waste paper bin is made using gold leaf gilding techniques on wood with paint (gold design on the front only) , and there’s a matching tissue box
Base Material: Wood
Dimensions: 22 x 22 x 29 cm (W, D, H)
The gold design is on both the back and front of the bin.
Wood craft from Spain - Our wooden range has a strong European design heritage. The patterns are sourced from young designers in Spain, Italy and France, who draw inspiration from the dreamy English countryside, the romantic Neo classical architecture of Greece and the glamour from the swinging Gatsby days.
Together with the use delicate techniques including decoupage (the layering of fine quality paper onto wood and sealing with layers of lacquer), gilding (the use of gold and silver leaf painting) and creative hand painting effects.
The fine hand finishes make each piece slightly different and gives depth and interest to the original pattern
The workshop that makes our wooden pieces is in Madrid, Spain it has a long-standing partnership with a charity that helps young people and adults with learning disabilities spend time learning traditional skills and allowing giving them support for independent living.
All the wood used is sustainably sourced.
