Oh Yes I Wood

Love this. Though at first I was completely mistaken about what it is, and way off about the scale of the piece. I thought I was just seeing a great grouping of vintage wood block letters assembled as wall art. That led to the incorrect assumption that it was a piece about 12 x 18 inches or thereabouts. Wrong and wrong. According to the makers, Kent and London, it's just "inspired" by wood block alphabets and it stands to about waist height. Oh, and it's not wall art. It's an actual chest of drawers. This piece pushes all my buttons--art, typography, organization, functionality. I'm sure it pushes a few more that I can't even discern at the moment, because I can tell that this piece will be sitting in my mind for a while.
