Tansu: Haiku for the Home


Infusing my home with a little Asian appeal is quickly turning into a frenzy. Choices, choices. Let’s see – I’d adorn empty walls with an elegant cherry blossom hanging and a beautiful Buddha panel, bring a boring old tabletop to life with a bonsai tree instead of coasters and perk up my porch with a gong instead of a traditional wind chime.

I’d better not neglect my bedroom, of course! This sleepy space could sure use a little more character. I think the classy Tansu Collection is the perfect fix. The honey shade of kiri wood used to craft these pieces is a trademark of Japanese décor that has been popular for centuries. The floor chest would make an ideal nightstand, while the tabletop chest has plenty of drawers to fit my (hint hint) extensive jewelry collection. Right, dear?
