Story of the Bombee Dresser | Uocmas News
26th May 2014

When Timothy Oulton first embarked on his namesake artisanal furniture collection, he was introduced to Argentinian leather master Diego Diaz at a fair in Shanghai and instinctively offered him a job. Sharing an ingrained passion for hides, they have collaborated to produce new and inventive leathers using unorthodox methods, weird and wonderful concoctions and age old hand finishing techniques.

The latest innovation in leather from Timothy Oulton is the Scarecrow finish; inspired by an old antique wing chair that Timothy fell in love with in a Paris flea market. This full aniline leather has been specially developed to bring out the natural scars and blemishes, resulting in an authentic leather, stamped with individuality. Scarecrow features in the new Age of Elegance collection on the Bombee Chest.

Bombe chests originated during the French Regency period of Louis XV and stood in every fashionable Parisian home in the mid 1700s. Bombe or ‘bulging’ is the French term for rounded furniture. A legend of the design world, the classic Bombe has been given a rugged new life in the Timothy Oulton Bombee Chest, gilded in exclusive Scarecrow leather. The big, bold and beautiful lines of the Bombee are offset by the delicate cabriole legs, whilst the German engineered drawer gliders provide world class functioning.
