• Smaller tables like our Chi Side Table are lower and perfect for platform or lower beds.

• Even our famous Small Step Chest has been proportioned to fit beside sofas or beds for an eye catching look.

• Most of our end tables are available in different stains and hardware.

A Miniature Take on a Traditional Piece

The bean chest today used as a beautiful end or bedside table is actually based on the Japanese and Korean grain chests from centuries past. These chests came in large and small sizes. Large chests, similar to own Rice Chest, were designed to store a big family’s really big rice supply. Smaller versions like the Bean Chest might have carried the family’s sesame seed supply. Designed with broad legs to carry significant weight, a hinged top lid for easy access to the inside, and fine lattice woodwork for good ventilation, these hardworking chests were thoughtfully designed as a type of mini pantry.

What was once a utilitarian chest found in most Asian homes is now considered a gorgeous hardwood piece that reminisces of a time past. The same intricate Japanese carpentry skills are employed today- as they were originally- to create this unique bed-, end- or sidetable. Greentea Design’s Bean Chest is a small piece that’s big on design and offers a deceiving amount of storage.
