1964 Austinsuite Chest of Drawers
I still kick myself for letting go of this one! Designed by Frank Guille for high end manufacturer Austinsuite, these wonderful chests have become the only way to store your clothes! Guille held the belief that ‘function lies within form’ and he demonstrated this effortlessly with his body of work, and this piece with its scalloped handles & tapered feet is no exception. The distinctly Danish appearance teamed with the richness of the teak really does make it stand out from its peers. I rescued this one from a charity shop – the vendour even knocked £5 off for a scratch it was carrying, which I quickly remedied to get it looking as good as new. Sold**
