While Asian interior design is too specific for my aesthetic, I've always loved Tansu chests, traditional Japanese chests handcrafted from fine woods, often with elaborate metal hardware. I've been on the hunt for a Tansu for years that is discreet enough to blend with both my modern and Eastern furnishings, and I think I've found it. The Viva Terra Tansu Storage Chest ($423-807, reduced from $489-949) has absolutely stunning, serif-like, C-shaped handles, and its plantation-grown kiri wood is very subdued. It would be great for storing bulky Winter blankets, or to hold a hefty television and use as media storage. What do you think?
