"I Got the Blues" Mid-Century Cedar Chest

By Abigail, Owner/Artist at Orton Originals in Madison, WI.

This beautiful cedar lined mid-century chest combines form and function. The dark walnut finish contrasts beautifully with shades of navy, teal, and turquoise on the front panel. Muted gold hardware provides a touch of glamour. The top opens to reveal a roomy cedar interior and the separate bottom drawer provides a little extra storage space for smaller items.  A great storage option for bedding or linens in addition to providing eye-catching style.
