Item of the Day: Wooden numbered cabinet

This cabinet of numbered drawers from Con Amore in La Lucia Mall immediately caught our attention for its combination of style and function. Perfect for hoarders and organisers alike, the imagination runs wild at the thought of what to put in each of the fifteen numbered drawers, whilst the decorator’s mind boggles at the myriad places which could be made more interesting by the addition of this beautiful piece of vintage furniture. Wait, it’s not vintage, though! Although it looks as though it has just been transported from the estate of an English gentleman, Con Amore is manufacturing the drawers for R4 950. A perfect addition to a study, bedroom or dining room, the cabinet is sure to be a talking point wherever you choose to place it. As for what you decide to put in it, the possibilities are endless – what about bills, important documents and interesting magazine articles or treasured heirloom cutlery and glassware? The drawers are roomy enough for lots of household bits and bobs. As for what you will put on top of the cabinet, you are sure to find the ideal thing at Con Amore. They stock exquisite glassware, unusual lamps and interesting objets. Con Amore is on the top floor of La Lucia Mall in Durban (031-562-1074) and at 2 Kramer Road, Kramerville in Joburg (011-262-0385). conamorehome.com
