Do Floating Drawers Slenderize a Room?

If only it were as easy for humans to lose some visual pounds as it is for furniture! I had that thought while I was oohing and aahing over some furnture pieces with “floating drawers,”

If only it were as easy for humans to lose some visual pounds as it is for furniture! I had that thought while I was oohing and aahing over some furniture pieces with “floating drawers,” like this four-drawer chest below.

Doesn’t this chest from Seattle-based Codor Design look less bulky and more slim and trim than a standard chest of drawers in a solid wood frame? The open “skeleton” allows us to virtually “see through” the piece, providing an airy, open profile in the room.I’ve been spotting these uber-sophisticated pieces in magazines, at the Merchandise Mart and the HighPoint Market in North Carolina. They can be constructed of wood, acrylic or metals and I love them in living rooms, sitting rooms or family rooms where you can use the drawers to store your TV clickers, magazines and cards.

This one would be drop-dead gorgeous in a foyer with that mirror or another mirror above it. Take note:these floating drawers are enclosed on all sides so no one can see the jumble of stuff inside!

Imagine these chic bedside tables in an elegant master bedroom. The combination of sleek metals and handsome wood in all of these makes a striking and slenderizing contrast.

How do we translate that into fashion?
