This unassuming Kommode packs a punch
 (and your undies too). Its slim profile is fitting for 
all those nooks and crannies around the house.
The soft-closing drawers are adorned by polished brass pulls—each uniquely hand stamped in Appenzell.
The handstamped pattern was inspired by Baroque-style scrolls found
 inside Berneck’s Catholic church.

Our Kommode is the perfect roommate for small-space living. Use as
 a sideboard when entertaining, storage for that shallow entryway or tidy 
up in the bedroom. Solid European ash makes up the sturdy, yet streamlined base—honoring traditional alpine furniture through the value and modernization of craft.
 Each Kommode we create is thoughtfully produced for functional living and lasting beauty. The longevity of our furniture in itself means that it is better 
for the environment—using only the best materials to ensure your piece can live for generations to come.

Appenzeller Handicrafts
The rolling hills of Appenzell are home to many handicrafts—including metal stamping, dating back to the early 1800s.
The Appenzeller belt is a prime example of old Swiss tradition. These belts have been made for hundreds of years from cowhide and ornamented with handmade metal fittings
—portraying motifs of processions to alpine pastures. The more decorations a belt had, the richer the person wearing it.
Heritage
Appenzell
Appenzell is a historic canton in the northeast of Switzerland. It became independent from the Abbey of Saint Gall in 1403 and entered a league with the Old Swiss Confederacy in 1411, becoming a full member in 1513.

Boy with Appenzeller goat, 1948
At the end of each summer, Appenzell farmers sport colorful traditional costumes and make their trek back to the valley.
Children form the vanguard of the procession with white, hornless Appenzeller goats. The farmer follows with dairy cows, heifers, calves, steer and a horse pulling the ledi—housing the equipment once needed for making cheese and butter. The cattle owner brings up the rear as the final member of the procession with the trusty Appenzeller hound at his side—keeping any livestock from going astray.

The three bell cows, harmonized in the sixth, seventh and eighth overtones, are the pride of the farming communities on both sides of the Säntis mountain. Each alpine herdsmen who lead, sing and yodel to the three instruments, which—like nowhere else in the world—are played by cows.
