Chests are not only practical...

Chests have something practical - they can be a very useful furniture to store something and be very decorative, if not an eyecatcher at the same time.
This gilded piece here has been inspired by the amazing wood carvings in Indonesia but is nonetheless an original. It has been hand carved from renewable massive pine wood and not been carved from illegally cut tropic woods - in contrast to many imported pieces from Asia.
