or Call to Order

The Imari Chest of Drawers, an exquis­ite creation by Philip Mainzer for e15, offers elegant and versa­tile long-profile storage that harmo­niously comple­ments e15’s beloved Noah and Mo beds.

True to Mainz­er’s design philos­o­phy, the Imari Chest of Drawers cele­brates the inher­ent beauty of solid wood, artfully brought to life through precise and thought­ful arrange­ment that high­lights the mate­ri­al’s natural grain and striations.

Crafted from 1.4″ thick solid wood, the Imari Chest of Drawers presents a choice of three widths and two heights. These height vari­a­tions corre­spond to single or double drawer expanses, each thought­fully designed with inte­grated end-to-end hori­zon­tal indented slots that func­tion as handles. For added conve­nience, each drawer is equipped with special hard­ware for gentle auto­matic closure, and discreet adjustable feet under­neath ensure easy leveling.

While all versions of the Imari Chest of Drawers are show­cased here in north­ern Euro­pean oiled oak, a range of finish options is avail­able. For a compre­hen­sive view of finishes and asso­ci­ated pricing, please contact us at 800.886.0867.

Expe­ri­ence the Imari Chest of Drawers, where func­tion­al­ity meets artistry, provid­ing both storage and aesthet­ics in perfect harmony.
