CABINETS / SHELVES

board BRAHMA Fujin / Raijin

This new cabinet in charcoal, specially created for our Paris store, features a “Brahma” door design, which is popular in Japan. The pictured wind god/thunder god is a Japanese god that helps the good and punishes the bad. The image represents an appeal to become someone who benefits the world. Nouvelle œuvre dessinée pour le magasin parisien avec une couleu…

board BRAHMA

Enclosed by four independent pillars, this beautiful living room cabinet was designed to evoke the look of a floating box. The door image is by master kimono artist Jotaro Saito, who has here made use of techniques handed down through the ages in the temples of Kyoto. Magnifique buffet de salon entouré de quatre piliers indépendants et conçu pour que la boît…

board ROKAKU

This living room cabinet utilizes Kinkaku-ji and Ginkaku-ji—two famous Japanese temples built in the medieval period—as design motifs. It features through-pillars and a raised-floor, “three-story” structure. This work exudes a very distinctive and dignified tranquility.

corner board ROKAKU

Despite being an item of furniture, it also works as an objet d’art. Œuvre dessinée pour le magasin parisien. Son apparence évoquant des bâtiments entrelacés est très digne, et maintient un équili…

board GLAM ROKAKU

This living room sideboard is modeled after the architecture of Japanese castles. And like some Japanese castles, this piece employs balloon framing, making use of thick pillars instead of typical six-sided boxes. It captures the unique and dignified presence of towering Japanese architecture.

board YUKIMI

When watching snow falling in the garden from inside a warm room, rather than opening the shoji door, someone might gently slide up the shoji to reveal a sliver of space to appreciate the view. This work was designed by trying to imbue a collection cabinet with this kind of refined Japanese aesthetic sensibility. Lorsque l’on regarde la neige qui tombe dans…

shelf UKIGUMO

These shelves express the vision of a beautiful autumn sky, with the soft touch of wind on the cheeks and the sight of slender clouds hanging in the sky. Two shelves overlapping at its center represent clouds. Processing chestnut trees using ancient Japanese techniques conjures up the philosophy of wabi-sabi— that all things in this world eventually pass awa…

board SIN

A large, square, multipurpose sideboard. The horned corners, brass hardware, and wood grain shaped like arrow fletching create a definitive look. While we have three standard setups, customization would allow these pieces to be used as curio cabinets or wardrobes.

Earth spinning top

A two-tiered living room sideboard with hand-carved legs shaped like spinning tops. Use one as storage and the other as a display case. Remove the connectors to separate the two cases. Their collective capacity is enough to handle your living and dining room storage needs.

side board HAUSKA

This design suspends a thin but solid wood box in a three-sided frame. Simultaneously a sideboard and chest, this piece is extremely versatile.

A-SB

“A” is our standard sideboard series. Its unchanging popularity is owed to the far-from-garden-variety amount of detail put into its manufacturing. We opted for a no-hassle push latch to maintain the piece’s stylish silhouette.

A-Chest

We filled this chest with our hopes for a simple, modern design using lots of classic, solid wood. With the notable absence of hardware thanks to the handiwork of Japanese artisans, this piece is sure to age into a beautiful antique.

2Line

Curio case

living chest DAL

Despite its overall simplicity, this beautiful chest stands on legs curved into lines seen in mosques. Special ordering it in its wider form reveals yet a different kind of façade.

book board DAL

A multi-use bookcase with thick shelves and framing. Shelves are made chunky, and we have emphasized a hardy silhouette, but not to the detriment of utility, which we’ve ensured with removable shelving.

Hanger shelf

A garment rack that combines numerous functional parts. Though frequently manufactured as a fixture, we’ve received many orders for home use of late.
