The Bertha cabinet is accompanied by an armchair and two-seat sofa, and was inspired by boat houses on Fogo island, Newfoundland.

Like the Bertha armchair and sofa, the cabinet takes inspiration from the traditional boat houses found on Fogo island, Newfoundland. The curved wooden panels emulate the shingle clad buildings on the island and the feet, which are part of the frame design, gives the piece the sense of a beautifully crafted continuous line.

The frame is made from FSC approved ash and is designed to provide both rigidity and strength. Made in the EU.

The frame is made from FSC approved Douglas Fir and is designed to provide both rigidity and strength. The sides of the frame are flat whilst the four back panels gently kick outwards like a boats hull.

The feet are part of the frame design, this gives the piece the sense of a beautifully crafted continuous line. The loose drop seat has elasticated webbing with neatly fitting feather and down seat and back cushions upholstered in Bora Da Willow fabric.

    Relating to the last comment, twee is the relevant word. I don't like any of this range by Donna Wilson at all. But it will no doubt appeal to her usual quaint clientele.
