Bespoke Chests & Trunks

 

The design and finish ranges from solid and minimal to mid-century modern or curved and dainty, so select a luxury chest or luxury trunk that suits the mood and atmosphere of the room. A tall chest that has clean, uninterrupted lines that is made in solid wood with a dark stain will have a strong presence and a monolithic look, which is entirely opposite to a chest that has leather upholstered drawers that sit within a slim, wooden frame that has a light, luxurious feel with a Scandinavian aesthetic.


From the bedroom to the luxury living room, the office and the library, a chest can provide useful and necessary storage. There are practical considerations when choosing a chest, such as the size and number of drawers - in a bedroom, select a chest with larger, deeper drawers for storing items of clothing - perhaps a tall, slim design that has a number of drawers along its vertical face, or a chest with three generous drawers and a tabletop surface can be used to display items on. If a wardrobe has provided enough storage for clothing, a chests that has a slim frame with smaller drawers may still be a great addition in the bedroom for storing and organising jewellery and other smaller items.  


As well as the shape and size, details such as the feet, tabletop and drawer handles can greatly affect the overall design. There are designs that see the chest sit on a base or platform that creates a solid, minimalist look with a more masculine edge - to continue the minimal look this chest may be crafted in one material, with clean, straight lines that omit the handles in favour of opening the drawers with a discrete and clever mechanism. Minimalist designs often feature details that are simple yet ingenious - a bevelled edge on a drawer, a ridged texture made in solid wood or a hidden platform that makes the piece look as if it is floating just off the ground.


For a softer look, select a chests that has curved lines, flared table legs and interesting details. Tactile materials such as leather can bring a sense of warmth to a piece, as can the beautiful, organic markings on the wood when left in its natural state. Having a chest that is lifted from the ground on slim legs will increase the sense of light and space, whether they are sleek brass or chrome legs or legs made in wood that have been carved into a soft, tapered shape. The handles have been reimagined for the contemporary chest, tending towards a more minimal look, such as a cut-out or a slim, wooden lip - or avoided completely with a well-engineered design.
