Stately, elegant and similar to the original step tansu the design is based on, the Big Burl makes a perfect room divider, with storage accessible from both sides.

All our Step Chests are two-sided (or reversible) and are built from beams of solid reclaimed wood using traditional Japanese joinery.

This version is constructed of 2 pieces so that you can reconfigure them or even use them separately.

You can customize any piece! Learn how.

Product Description

The minimal hardware and balance of drawers and sliding doors give our Big Burl Step a look straight out of the history books.

Like the originals, it features several hidden drawers for smaller objects. This design appears at first fairly simple and sedate but upon closer inspection it is full in intricacies.

Like the rest of the full sized step chests, plenty of display room is provided. Whether on its own as a living room piece, or straddling two areas as a divider, the Big Burl step chest will bring a certain warmth and charm to your living area.
Unlike the originals, it is available in your choice of stain and hardware.
