Four types of wood are showcased in this pair of exquisitely crafted Korean chests that date from around 1870. United with a coffered design, the cabinets combine paulownia, favored for its warp-resistant properties; persimmon, for its streaks of orange and black; pear for its warm color; and elm root for its gnarled, evocative patterns. Gently curved hoof feet and the sparkle of brass braces, hinges and lock enliven the cabinet’s largely square profile. Most surprising about the design are the relatively small doors that open into a large open interior. Traditional Korean homeowners typically stacked their clothes in such depths, allowing out of season garments as well as valuables to lie at the bottom.
