Imari Chest of Drawers
The Imari chest of drawers, like Mainzer’s complementary Hirado sideboard, provides elegant multipurpose long, low-profile storage that will also beautifully complement e15’s popular Noah and Mo beds. Like many of Mainzer’s designs, the Imari chest of drawers is a celebration of the aesthetics of solid wood engendered by the precise and thoughtful arrangement of the material’s natural grain and striations.
The Imari chest of drawers features a composition in 1.4” thick solid wood and is available in a choice of three widths and two heights – the heights correspond to the option of a single or double drawer expanse. In either version, each drawer panel has been cleverly fabricated with an integrated end-to-end horizontal indented slot that functions as a handle. Each drawer is fitted with special hardware that allows gentle automatic closure; discreet underside adjustable feet that were designed for easy leveling.
All versions of the Imari chest of drawers – three widths and two heights – are available in northern European oak oiled or finished in waxed white pigmented.
