Cuba Chest by Terence Conran

The Cuba chest is a handsome, manly cabinet that's perfect as an entertainment center in the living room or a wardrobe in the bedroom, where you can admire it from a lofty position in your bed. Designed by Terence Conran (did you know his NY shop turns five this year?) in oak. We know the red portion is laquered (oh dear), but we do love the peek-a-boo element it provides. Like all Benchmark furniture, the Cuba is FSC-certified. £1,750 ::Benchmark [by MO]
