Tansu Chest

Based on Japanese Tansu furniture, the stepped design of this Tansu chest allows for access to loft space while incorporating storage. Simply flip the top portion onto the lower “steps” to create a square chest. This project works quite well as an efficient storage piece under an open staircase or next to a closed set of stairs, playing up their shape.
