Beautiful Boxes

3 December 2013 Posted by Alexandra

A beautiful box naturally piques our curiosity. We want to reach out and lift the lid to discover what it conceals inside: what is it that is so precious that it must be kept hidden from our eyes? Boxes are the jewellery of the cabinet-maker’s art. They require as much skill, precision, artistry and attention to detail as a fine cabinet. Our boxes are made by artisans in our Bangkok workshops. Constructed from teakwood or oak each box has been adorned with Alexander Lamont’s signature materials: rich opium lacquer, delicate straw marquetry inlay, textured shagreen and unexpected slices of gold. These boxes are as precious as any objects we may choose to keep inside them.
