This 19th-century walnut chest was originally used by a Chinese pharmacy to organize and store herbal medicines. A statement piece brilliantly constructed with mortise and tenon joinery, it has thirty drawers, each beautifully dovetailed together with six individual compartments. Paper labels designating the former contents of each drawer provide graphic rhythm to the chest's front, contrasting against the wood's rich, dark lacquer finish.

Additional Dimensions:
Drawers: 7.75"W x 19"D x 4"H
Drawer Compartments: 3.75"W x 6"D x 4"H

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
