This elegant wooden cabinet is a 19th-century Korean blanket chest (pandaji) used throughout the home to store books, ancestor plates, or bedding. The chest opens by a hinged panel on the front, which drops downwards to reveal a large interior compartment. The chest is crafted of beautiful keyaki elmwood with dovetail joinery and hand-worked iron hardware. Decorative floral studs secure simple drop handles and iron staples for reinforcing the exterior edges. The large lock plate has a flared shape and is held closed by a traditional lock, complete with a brass key. In contrast to the warm coloring of the elm panels, the iron hardware is finished with a layer of lacquer for a dark black color and a beautiful patina that calls to be touched.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
