An Ode to Drawers
DRAWERS | old shop, museum & library furniture | glass-fronted milliners drawers | wooden filing cabinets | map & plan drawers | letterpress drawers | pigeonholes | apothecary drawers
I bought my first set of labelled drawers at auction when I was in my late teens. I have always enjoyed organising my collections in my own way, giving them all a place to live, in some state of organised chaos and accessible when required.
My studio is home to 6 different drawers, each containing objects & treasures that I am constantly referring back to for paint colours, material references, product design and interior projects. I may struggle to recall last week’s incidents but I have a better memory for where each of these objects live, thanks to my many labelled drawers.
Find a labelling system that works best for you; attach hardware with a label slot (like the Major Drawer Pull), tie on a paper tag, stencil on some painted numbers, attach the Society Numbers or stick on some tags made with a label punch.
