Time & Style Tanazushi shelf stand references the structures of classical architecture, such as the Todai-ji and Yakushi-ji temples constructed 1300 years ago, and the Horyu-ji temple that is the world’s oldest extant wooden structure.

Features a simple and practical construction 260-cm-wide and 140-cm-high, with three shelving boards laid across six support pillars. It is the oldest extant piece of Japanese furniture, and the prototype for shelves in Japan. Crafted from solid cedar, the shelf is said to have been used to store instruments and other furnishing goods.
