Custom Philadelphia TV cabinet and bookcase
Cherry with dye and lacquer and Grey cabinet back
This 12′ wide 12″ deep custom built-in cabinet was built for a client of Philadelphia-based Jennie Pritzker Interiors . With a dedicated spot for the flatscreen TV, large adjustable shelves above and eight inset doors below, this cabinet gives the homeowner plenty of space to organize things. This piece is finished with an aniline dye over cherry protected by a semi-gloss waterborne lacquer and the back painted Benjamin Moore Silver Spring. The designer chose nickel bar pulls to finish the look. Behind the doors are more adjustable shelves.
These stately, dramatic custom cherry wardrobes are off today to be installed in a bedroom on Delancey Street in Philadelphia. Commissioned by Michele Plachter Design, they are quite tall and feature beautiful details like beaded openings and fluted columns. The cherry wood had been enhanced with an aniline dye and protected with waterborne lacquer. Textured tempered glass panels in Flemish pattern from The Glass Company USA in Willow Grove, PA.

We were thrilled to have a mention in the August issue of Main Line Today magazine’s August issue, thanks to a collaboration with the lovely ladies of Michele Plachter Design.
The article, titled, A Philadelphia Interior Designer Creates a Home for Texas Transplants: City designer Michele Plachter brings her urban flair to this Villanova home, was written by Tara Behan and features photographs by Andrea Cipriani Mecchi. You can read the entire article by clicking the title in the previous sentence.
The room’s main highlight is a custom built-in designed to house a 90-gallon fish tank, with open shelves on either side to display books and tchotchkes.
Plachter filled the family room with reminders of the Shavers’ former home. She created an accent wall with a custom rustic-oak installation, arranged horizontally from floor to ceiling, with storage space underneath. A TV is incorporated into the piece, with a pair of antique brass sconces on either side.
