Thinking Inside the Box, Part II

While groups of small boxes are attractive, individual larger boxes can be the perfect interior design accessory for a desk, cocktail table, bookcase or dresser. The first box below is an oriental chinoiserie lacquered gaming box, 13 x 9 x 6.5. Reproduced from an 1830s design, this box fits traditional English décor. Next is a Tivoli hand painted box with cut corners, 13 x 8 x 6, which looks terrific in a stylistically French setting. Third is a mahogany beaded box tea caddy, 12 x 6 x 7, which works well on a cocktail table, perhaps to store the all-powerful remote control. Finally an English Art Deco grey shagreen inlay box, also mahogany, the largest at 17 x 10 x 8; put it on a large desk or large bedroom dresser.
