Riley Drawer Unit


A large modern drawer unit for home or work.

Designed + Made by So Watt

Riley is an innovative solution to the standard workstation pedestal, home dresser, or feature storage in a retail setting.

The drawer fronts are faced in Fenix NTM laminates for an ultra matt finish which also provides an extremely durable and healthy surface. With antibacterial properties and the ability to heal scratches with the application of heat, this is an incredibly smart material that comes in 13 colours.

  • 1. Where Can I Place The Riley Plywood Drawer Unit?

    Our Riley Drawer Unit is your new forever piece. It may be large, but the uses are endless ensuring you can use it in multiple areas as your home landscape grows and changes.

    Riley can be an elevated plywood chest of drawers in your bedroom as a dresser for clothes storage or at the end of your bed as a way to divide up your room. Bring him into the main living area as an eyecatching buffet unit, with the height making a great servery for larger parties in your home. Thanks to the durable steel drawer boxes, Riley is also great as a hall stand for all your shoes and daily items to live in! Riley is your plywood cabinet for everything.

    2. Does The Riley Drawer Unit Come In Different Colours?

    Just like all the pieces we make at So Watt you can customise the size and finish. We offer 12 colours as standard for the drawer fronts. These are all ultra-matt fingerprint proof laminates from the Fenix NTM range made in Italy. This is paired with our non-yellowing clear finish to the exterior faces of the Riley cabinet drawers. Get in touch with us today to talk about the right colours and finishes for your space!

    3. What Product Can I Pair With The Riley Drawer Unit?

    Riley was originally released as a storage partner to the Rover Team Table and has been created with commercial and office interiors in mind. Riley sits beautifully at the end of the Rover Team Table and offers staff storage without the clutter of individual pedestals. The height of the Riley plywood drawers encourages impromptu team meetings with space to quickly lay down papers or a laptop at comfortable standing height. Throw in a Pegboard, and some Billi Stools, and you have yourself the perfect creative studio furniture set!

    4. What Makes The Riley Drawer Unit Unique?

    One of the key features of the Riley are the folded steel drawer boxes which maximise the internal space of the drawers, avoiding chunky runners and drawer boxes, while remaining super strong and able to take significant weight. Our classic So Watt handle detail gives a focal point of interest giving Riley his playful personality.
