Would love to find.....

something like this. Not even sure how to search for it. I found it on someone's blog, they made this themself. Which is really amazing to me.
Now, does anyone know if a set similar to this can be purchased? If so, where?

Thanks! (PS cross posted in The Kitchen Table)

Here is a link to the eBay page for provincial French furniture.

I kind of poked around the internet but didn't see anything similar - it may have been fashioned after an antique design or just a very clever woodworker. I was thinking you could probably find a cabinet maker to either restyle an existing chest you like, or build one from scratch.

I found this site (don't know anything about it, but it looks promising) where you post pics of what you want and the woodworkers there offer to build it for you (if you find someone interested). Look at the website for the type of things their members make.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check out both sites. I just think that thing is so cool, and functional. I don't think I would want it quite so ornate, but it's still fab.

Now I understand.
It's not the provincial look you like - you are looking for a small flat file.

This one is likely a map chest, judging by its dimensions.

It's a piece designed to hold document sheets - every architect's and engineer's office, and many designer's studios (mine included) have them for storing drawings, blueprints, and any other large sheets, laid flat.

Here are a couple of mission/country styles (scroll down to bottom of page). I haven't seen one of those in years!
