Best Laid Plans

As the saying goes, ‘the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray’ but we’re hoping that our plans of more detailed organisation and order won’t go astray with the use of beautiful Antique and Vintage Plan Drawers in the home!

At quintessential duckeggBLUE we appreciate the ongoing use of Antique and Vintage Plan Drawers in the workplace, studio and home as the most elegant storage of plans, drawings, documents, precious objects and ephemera. However we also like their clever re-purposing as stylish drawers and striking features in contemporary interiors.

For instance whilst still being infinitely practical, they are far more unique as cabinetry in your kitchen or bathroom than your standard set of modern drawers. Even in the most minimalist of home environments Plan Drawers instantly create warmth, curiosity and a slightly artistic ambience.

These artistic associations are not surprising as Plan Drawers have a long history of use in fields such as photography, printmaking and architecture (although we’re sure there just as useful to store the dullest of bills and documents!)

Of course as Antique and Vintage Plan Drawers have also been utilised for all forms of archiving, they really could’ve stored almost everything… from the most ancient of maps to the most unusual of specimens! Like all one-off covetable pieces, every set has its own unique provenance. We especially collect pieces bearing all the signatures of a rich history and exquisite craftsmanship.

We currently have the most magnificent English Plan Drawers in store…..Restored to former glory by quintessential duckeggBLUE and made from English Pine timbers, with original handles and fittings and 10 drawers each with folding flat front secured by brass hooks. Why not visit in store today to view and learn more about this superb find or maybe just here
