Many people believe that when it comes to quality you cant beat an Antique Chest of Drawers. These will usually be hand made, using traditional woodworking joints such as dovetails and using a good quality wood. These woods are very expensive these days, or in some cases are a protected species and banned from being imported.
If you own an Antique Chest of Drawers you will notice a vast difference between these and modern day produced furniture. The Antique Chest of Drawers will be made either of Mahogany, Oak, Walnut, Pine or some other good quality wood. Even if it is not one of the higher quality woods it will at least be made of real wood.
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.
2. Childrens room - This is one of the best place to put chest of drawers. Why? Kids tend to be a little cluttered with all their toys, video games and board games lying around. However, with a good set of drawers, easy storage for all these stuff is just within your reach. At the same time, it is also accessible for you to take them out whenever your kids need to play with them again.
There are many uses for chests of drawers in the home including for storing clothing and accessories, keeping toys organised and tidy, storing kitchen, living room and dining room equipment and of course everyone has a junk drawer.
Matching European style living room furniture pieces like a mirror with a pretty carving of a basket of flowers and a three-drawer serpentine chest can look great in a country-inspired home or Venetian-inspired residence.
