box1a.JPGI collect boxes of all types from all over the world. Last week I added a lux line of lacquer boxes that display finished canvases from the San Diego show. These beautifully constructed boxes are finished with a traditional Japanese-style lacquer finish, but the color choices are anything but boring. In addition to basic black, they do a number of gorgeous colors, burled wood and gold or silver leaf finishes. The basic boxes accommodate 4” x 4”, 5” x 5” canvases, but they also come in larger squares and there are several rectangular versions. These elegant boxes would be perfect on display, on coffee or end tables, or on a desk. (I bought a burled rectangular box with a safari style canvas for my husband—don’t tell him!)
