Sarah Sherman Samuel's New Collaboration Is THE One We've Been Waiting For
Cabinetry just got cooler.
Imagine a home where every cabinet is custom made to fit your vision, all the way down to the tiny details? Interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel and cabinetry and IKEA hacking experts Semihandmade are making this concept a reality, with artisan craftsmanship, authentic hard woods, and damn-good taste.
Together, the two design entities created a new collection of original doors that are made to match with IKEA cabinet boxes, allowing customers to tailor their kitchen cabinets and home consoles.
How did these two come together? John McDonald, founder of Semihandmade, explained, "We met Sarah in 2013 when she was remodeling her Venice bungalow. At the time, she was transitioning from product design to interiors and Semihandmade was a five-man shop," he says. "All we did was make her cabinet doors. Sarah painted them, installed the cabinets, styled the room and shot the photos. Sarah’s traditional yet contemporary kitchen — IKEA cabinets with copper and brass accents framing two-tone Shaker doors — went viral. We still get at least one email a week mentioning it as inspiration." We personally can attest to being inspired by the airy and modern kitchen, too.
In their collection, Sarah and Semihandmade offer reclaimed and hard woods, specialty colored laminates, and sequence matched veneers. Learn more about the gorgeous collaboration here.
