PAX in the living room


Materials: PAX

Description: My staircase are clearly visible at the front entrance door. This is considered a huge taboo in Asian culture. The solution is a Pax dresser standing directly between the entrance and the staircase. Luckily for us, the Pax doors fit on the back as well as the front side of the dresser!

The hardest part was cutting a piece of plywood to divide the Pax dresser into two parts. The front part works as a shoe rack. The back part was for hanging coats and flip-flops for walking indoors.

    Very nice. I’m not having an asian background but also for me it creates an uncomfortable feeling when you can see through a house when you open an outside door. Don’t know why but it feels like sitting outside and not having any privacy. Whatever, nicely done and it creates a lot of storage space while giving a more private feeling.

    That is ingenious!

    a taboo?

  4. That is a very creative solution — I like it, and I don’t think I would have ever come up with it!

    Well done!

    So Long,

    Love it! My husband is Taiwanese and in his home country they have tons of beautiful furniture thats sole purpose is to be placed near the front door.

    But in the States there really wasn’t anything similar so we’ve been thinking of ideas since and this just might work!
