This kind of eclectic style of furniture is widely available at the moment. It works for us due to the mix of different painted drawers – a cool palette of colours featuring nautical blues, and classic black and white, as well as some left au naturel – coupled with the different designs and textures of the drawer handles. You’ll find metal, wooden, horn and bone handles all mixed together.
The chest has plenty of space inside for storage, with a good mix of varied drawer sizes. There are even some tray style shallow drawers that you could use for desk essentials or paper.
We’d happily give the Darwin chest a home, but what do you think of it?
