Michael Fortune got the inspiration for his curved bedside cabinet from a flea-market find in his college days. His old pine chest of drawers had back legs that were cut out extensions of the solid-wood side panels. This simple leg-curve design came into play when Fortune designed his bedside cabinet, which also includes a wide cove from top to bottom along the back, a bead detail that cleverly conceals the hinges of the cabinet doors, and a drawer with curved front and sides.
