classic Australian solid cedar chest was first made in the
Castlereagh Street, Sydney cabinetmaking workshop of Australia's
most famous colonial cabinetmaker, Andrew Lenehan.
In 1856 Lenehan was commissioned to refurnish Sydney's Government
House for Governor Denison, and most of the furniture he crafted
is still used in Government House today.
The Colonial Living Lenehan Chest has five graduated drawers
and makes a clear design statement. It brings together function
and beauty without the incorporation of extraneous decoration.
These graduated drawers offer flexible storage space.
Colonial Living's re-creation is made from solid cedar with
traditional strong dovetailed drawers, hand-turned feet and
of this piece shows the magnificent cedar grain to maximum advantage.
The two top drawer fronts are cut from a single cedar board,
so the grain pattern continues across the full width of the
chest. The knobs and bun feet are hand-turned. The escutcheons
are solid brass.
