Amherst Oyster Large Chest

Modeled after an 18th-century English piece, our chests are clad in a striking oyster-pattern veneer, named for its resemblance to the mollusk's oval shell. To create the effect, artisans apply acacia inlays by hand over solid acacia and engineered wood, then finish the chest with a warm stain to bring out the beauty of the grain patterns. The large chest offers ample storage space with two narrow and three wide drawers. Built by hand using mortis-and-tenon joinery and fitted with aged-brass teardrop pulls.

    This is a lovely, substantial chest that is beautifully finished. The "oyster" color pattern was just what I needed for a bedside chest to pull together a tall, light wood sleigh bed and a dark closet unit on the opposite wall.

    This chest is beautifully made and is going to be a perfect addition to my bedroom. I just wish it came in a bigger size

    The veneer is nicely finished and the inlay is very good, though the severe contrast of dark and light blocks gives my particular piece a sort of patchwork quilt appearance. More careful matching of the block color by the manufacturer would have resulted in a better aesthetic. Also, the drawers do not pull smoothly and should have been fitted better. Be aware that the small shipping plastic feet must be removed before screwing in the wooden feet.
