The No. 112 Chest of Drawers
There are 112 dovetails in this chest, hence its formal name: the No. 112 Chest of Drawers. “Yes, we counted and without shame,” Rob says. The design was inspired by the vertical book-matches of the Biedermeier style. “Biedermeier furniture tends to be pretty visually overwhelming, so we wanted to move away from the burled veneers usually found on those pieces,” he says. “This walnut veneer we found has a lovely shape and the sapwood gave us the bold graphic element we were looking for.”
