Many people prefer to buy antiques for their own use, in order to get a good standard of manufacture for a reasonable price. Even furniture from the first half of the 20th century, before the use of particle board became widespread, can be of good quality and good value.
The amount of labour required is also very costly, and modern hand made pieces reflect this in their price. The whole way an antique or hand made piece is constructed is totally different from the modern particle board unit with their plastic and metal fixings that keep the thing together. In an antique unit, the joints are accurately hand cut and glued or pegged together which results in a much stronger joint. The whole unit is much stronger, longer lasting and more visually pleasing.
This particular style of chest of drawers is constructed on legs. Because of this design technique, there ends up being additional space below the chest of drawers itself that otherwise would have gone to waste.
There are many different benefits that can be realized through the usage and placement of a chest of drawers in your bedroom.
Another nice feature of the chest of drawers is the fact that they are lightweight. On your own you actually will be able to position and then reposition the chest of drawers wherever you might desire from time to time. Like many people, you desire to make adjustments and changes to the layout of the furnishings in your home, including in your bedroom. Once again, you do not need to engage assistance in order to redo furniture your arrangements.
I myself now buy online or from the local auction house in order to get a well made piece of furniture at a good price.
