Along with color, I love drawers. My coffee table will have five that will open from both sides.....thanks Jim Budlong. When someone asks me what I'll put in them, I say nothing. No remote, no keys, no magazines, or whatever one puts into a space that conceals. The drawers will be functional but with their contrasting woods to show off the hand-cut dovetails and the parquetry bottoms, they will become the focal point of the table. So why would I want to clutter up something that takes so much time and thoughtfulness to create?
