Perfecting line and proportion, the simple design of this pair of locking cabinets celebrates the restraint of classic Chinese furniture forms. Used for storage in a Qing-dynasty home, the pair of small square-corner cabinets would have been placed at opposite ends of a room or wall to instill a sense of balance. Each cabinet is minimally decorated save for its black lacquer finish and the soft glimmer of its brass dagger-post lock. We love these cabinets as a pair of nightstands or next to a high-arm sofa, filled with a collection of contemporary art books or antique tomes.
