Lacquer boxes - a lovely storage option - range widely in design and price. The one above comes from Russia and is quite expensive - but stunning. But the Tradestone Gallery has many boxes in a huge range of styles and prices - along with a nice guide to Russian lacquer boxes.
Lacquerware is also found in many parts of Asia; I have a small box I got in Vietnam. Gumps sells these square eggshell lacquer boxes from Japan.
The lacquer jar shown above was made by artist Subin Tositarat of Thailand. He also has an eggshell lacquer box.
And here's a lacquered box from Mexico.
I don't know where these Mondrian-inspired boxes were made, but they sure are eye-catching! [via Apartment Therapy]
