Crave Worthy: Tansu Shelves

Tansu are traditional Japanese chests, handcrafted of woods such as cypress, keyaki, Japanese cedar, and koa. The shelves are distinguished by the beautiful ornament in the metal fittings and inventive techniques employed to offer storage space. Tansu are considered the most prolific and important element of the highly-regarded Japanese interior-design styles. The tansu known as Kaidan-dansu, or step-chests were often designed in several modular pieces. These Gump's Tansu Shelves ($1250) are a modern re-creation of this crave-worthy traditional design. The Gump's shelves are a two-piece, 19-drawer, seven-step cabinet, handcrafted of hardwood solids, and composites with antiqued-brass hardware and a dark-walnut finish.
