The arch is a commonly seen theme in architecture. It’s early use stemmed from the Romans that perfected it’s use and went on to deposit their architectural technology as their empire expanded. The arches made a climb in the architectural world under the Romans and were feature in most installations from bridges to aqueducts. It’s history isn’t lost on the craftsmen, who modelled this chest of drawers, and took inspiration from the engineers of ancient Rome.

The arch is also an elegant solution to structured doors and flat lines, creating the illusion of fluidity in a single stroke. You’ll find little hints of the Roman inspiration in it’s mural, from the dusty stones to the creeping vines. A cultural purchase for any homeowner.
