Small drawers in chests have always held a fascination for me since my childhood. When visiting my grandparents I would love opening little boxes and trays to discover whether there was any chocolate or playthings inside. Sometimes I would leave something of my own in a tiny drawer to be recovered when I next visited.
That’s why this Herbal Chinese Medicine Chest attracted my attention when browsing through a catalog recently. The hand-crafted reproduction of a 41 drawer medicine cabinet is based on the old Asian chests used to store herbal remedies. Made of beautiful elm wood, it’s also decorated with Chinese lettering.
For an admirer of Eastern culture this would make an excellent addition to a living room, study or bedroom. It would also make a great hunting ground for any inquisitive child.

Did you know?: Traditional Chinese medicine is based largely on the philosophical concept that the human body is a small universe with a set of complete and sophisticated interconnected systems, and that those systems usually work in balance to maintain the healthy function of the human body.
