Sono Chest of Drawers from Hiromatsu

Found through Japanese retailer Hiromatsu, but unfortunately not yet available in the U.S., these Sono chests of drawers seem like the perfect prototype for an adventurous DIYer. The striped pattern conceals varying depths of drawers and, in some cases, hides a flat cabinet door. If you're looking for ways to update an old dresser, this pattern of narrow stripes is more flexible that it seems...

The stripes conceal cabinets and drawers of different sizes.
Wood stains in varying warm tones tie the color palette together.
Deep drawers have three or four layers with knobs.
The repetitive pattern creates a trim, tailored look.

For a similar look, we'd use painters tape to section off narrow stripes on a plain, flat-fronted chest of drawers, then center knobs between each stripe. The chest will seem like it houses several small drawers rather than a few big ones, creating a patterned effect. For more information about the Sono line, visit Hiromatsu's online shop.
