Asmara Blanket Chest

Inspired by my daughter Asmara, I wanted to create a blanket chest which was light & feminine.

To do this I have used fine timber slats to create a woven texture.  I have also used some traditional arts and craft features, for example, the Ebonised Green & Green details at the Breadboard ends.

The blanket chest looks just as comfortable in a sitting room as it does in a bedroom.



Height 580 mm
Width 870 mm
Depth 510 mm
Timbers Used I have used various timbers when making this chest in the past. I like to have a contrast between the legs & breadboard ends & carcass & top. If possible I like to keep the contrast within the same family of timbers. For Example, Scrub Beef Wood & Silky Oak.
