The design idea for the Polka Box came whilst browsing through popular textile patterns of the 19th and 20th Century, including fleur-de-lis, plaid and camouflage.  Dots are considered to be feminine and demur whereas dark lines and stripes are associated with masculinity.  We have hand-crafted the Polka box to incorporate both masculine and feminine features in such a way as to complement one another. The bold black ebony lines and strong dark grey veneered exterior are softened by the iridescent mother of pearl circles on the box lid top and the shiny circular catch on the lid front. Inside, the box is veneered in creamy sycamore while the base and lid interior are lined in lush lavender faux suede.

The Polka Box is a one-off design that sits elegantly on a bedside table or living-room bookshelf, and can be used for holding jewellery or important documents.
