Kaidan Tansu. Simplicity of From - Utility in Function

Tansu Chest

In the small dwellings of 18th century Japan, the "Kaidan Tansu" was created to provide much needed storage space as well as access to a second story or loft. 

This piece, is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also  functional for storage and display. Perfect for smaller homes without a lot of closet space. 

Home Improvements Catalog offers this item in 2 finishes and is reversible! I use it in my own home for storing a plethora of kids hats, gloves, and school supplies.  

The 'Zen' inspired design characteristics of simplicity in form and utility in function are easily customizable by a skilled cabinetmaker. Try a bespoke design in exotic woods to fit any space in your home while at the same time, creating the perfect balance of form and function
