sss new cabinet front launch!

The wait is over! Our new “Quarterline” fronts for SemiHandmade are live, you can order them and samples now! I shared our downstairs kitchen yesterday, so if you missed that… hop here to see the first Quarterline install, and today, in honor of the launch, I wanted to share one of my favorite ways I’ve used the collection so far. In Archie’s room!

My first line with SemiHandmade was the “modern beaded” which was my take on the classic beaded style, so as a line extension I designed Quarterline as a fresh take on the traditional shaker cabinets.

We named the new door/drawer front design Quarterline since the stile is a fraction of the size of a traditional shaker, which gives it a clean modern look without taking it all the way to a fully flat slab front. Also, there is a street called Quarterline in the town I was born in which follows suit to naming my hardware after cities that are important to me (I adopted the tradition from my hardware partner Park Studio). And yes, not to be confused with quarantine…we named it pre-COVID so quarantine wasn’t a word we had on our minds at the time. haha

SemiHandmade fronts are made to work with Ikea boxes (their Sektion kitchen boxes, their Godmorgon bathroom vanities, and their Besta storage/media units) so with them, the Ikea hack possibilities are endless. You might be more familiar with seeing SemiHandmade in kitchens. I have used them countless times in my own kitchens and in clients homes (here, here and here are just a few examples). Utilizing SemiHandmade with Ikea gives you the opportunity to create the look of a custom kitchen, or media cabinet, or bathroom vanity without the cost.

Shown here in my signature color “Agave”, the Quarterline collection comes in the same 7 colors as our Modern Beaded so you can use them on their own or even mix and match in a space. Quarterline on the bottom, Modern beaded on top would be a great combination to see in a kitchen.

To create the storage cabinet shown you will need:

1 Besta Frame
2 Packs of Hinges
1 Pack of legs

2 Quarterline Doors for Besta in size 23 5/8″ x 25 1/4″

Then add hardware of your choice. The hardware shown here is from my upcoming wood line that I designed for Park Studio and will be launching V soon!

I truly CAN NOT wait to see what you guys come up with in your homes with these doors. Head over to Semihandmade to order samples or start an order!

P.S. The first photo in the post is in our main kitchen. We simply swapped my white Modern Beaded fronts (also from my collection with SemiHandmade) with the new Quarterline for the photo shoot. We only swapped these side cabinets so I have since switched them back but I do love both looks. It also illustrates how easily you can update or change the whole look of an existing Ikea kitchen but simply swapping out the fronts for a new design. Shown in the kitchen photo is Quarterline in Desert Grey.  See more of our kitchen and all of the sources, here
