Known as a Japanese tonsu chest. They can go anywhere. What would you like to store in it? If the items are appropriate to one particular room, then use it there. Like maybe linen and silver for the dining room in the dining room.

If your nick means what I think it does, you have 5 kids. And there are 5 steps. Can you put this piece in your family room, and on each level, put something to represent one of the children? It can be an ever-changing display as they grow up.

If you happen to have an open stairwall, that would be a perfect place, but can really go anywhere.

Decoenthusiaste: Thank you for the background info, very interesting! I have had several ideas for it but wanted to be sure if it had any specific use first. I was thinking to use it ( at first as a bedside piece and add books or little decor items on the steps. Inside- extra storage of candles, candle holders, note books, rechargers etc. and even magazines at the bottom. I like the dining room idea too but trying to arrange a layout in our new home so that little kids can't get hold of stuff -which will happen If I left it in the dining room-they will even climb it ! I was also thinking about placing it between two arched windows against a wall space there or even next to a desk for stationary stuff-hide all the stuff I don't want to be seen ? I would appreciate any more feed back on those ideas too please.

Orangecamera, Yep, this mom has five kids! That is a beautiful idea, never thought of that--wondering how you came up with that too haha. They always bring me souvenirs with them so I could use it for that purpose too and put it in the family home upstairs-I already have made a special gallery for them with all their photos on it for the family room. I have so many photos from over the years and these will be left out in a book case for them too. Big task sorting out the timeline but it is almost done.

Gabberts Design Studio, thank you, it is good to know it can be placed anywhere. The stairwell space will be turned into a small storage area for filing cabinets as hubby needs place for all his business documents etc. Plus, it is rather hidden towards back kitchen exit area-extra kitchen.

A fun architectural piece for a bedroom in front of a tall and wide framed mirror that is placed on the floor leaning into the wall. Try this option!
