Why choose mid-century chests?

It was the Egyptians who developed the art of making beautiful chests with ceremonial carvings over three thousand years ago. As highly treasured items, these chests were created and decorated with the utmost dedication. In fact, at the Cairo Museum, one of the earliest chests ever made is still on display. The chest, or coffer, with the image of King Tutankhamen is a treasure to behold, with endless artistry and creativity to admire. Flash forward a few centuries, and the art of chest making has evolved significantly, though the love and attention is still present in each mid-century piece.

A far cry from the lavishly gilded pieces of the Egyptians, chests from the 1940s, 50s and 60s followed the mid-century mantra of form following function. This means that the practical use of an item was always placed at the forefront of its design, making for some of the most durable and functional chests ever made. The use of durable materials, solid wood and high quality manufacturing techniques are all typical of mid-century furniture, while clean lines, simple silhouettes and chic finishes help bring a thoroughly modern sense of luxury to these designs.

Introducing mid-century chests into your home

A chest is a great addition to any space where storage is necessary. In the living room for example, a sleek solid wood chest from designers such as Ercol and G Plan can also double as an attractive coffee table, giving you both internal and external storage space for keeping your living area uncluttered. Likewise, a smaller, more delicately designed chest makes for the perfect addition to the bedroom, providing plenty of space for storing cosmetics and toiletries, leaving your surfaces free for ornaments, photographs and other items you actually want to display.

Even in the hallway, storage is a welcome addition for keeping shoes and bags out of sight, replacing them with an attractive teak chest for guests to admire.
