Tall Chest by Cees Braakman for Pastoe in Oak, 1950s, The Netherlands

This tall chest of drawers in oak catches the eye instantly and draws you in slowly with its layering of intricate details. Designed by Cees Braakman for Pastoe, it is of a high quality and calibre thanks to the designer and manufacturer. This partnership signifies an important period of Dutch design history, and the pieces produced by the pair are highly regarded today. Standout features include the stunning finger pulls which run horizontally, gliding across the face of the cabinet with ease. But perhaps the most exciting feature lies inside this small piece – the distinctive rounded edge anti-dust design is both a beautiful curved timber detail and a signature trademark of Braakman’s. See how the size of the drawers increases from top to bottom, contributing again to the fluid nature of this vintage gem.
