Large Tapered Cabinet, Black Lacquer
Our beautiful black lacquer tapered cabinet originally would have included only shelves as the Chinese would fold their clothes for storage, but ours includes a wooden hanging rail as well three removable shelves. It therefore works perfectly as either a stylish, modern wardrobe or as a more general storage unit. Two bottom drawers provide extra useful storage space, each one having a butterfly design brass handle - a symbol for beauty and happiness. The tapering 'A-frame' profile of this wardrobe gives a wonderful sense of fluidity and movement from floor to top. The doors are set into the frames on wooden dowels, doing away with the need for metal hinges and giving a very clean, pure appearance. This type of cabinet was common throughout China where large versions like this were used to store clothes and other items.
