The Chest of Drawers is one of the most popular pieces of furniture, being able to store all manner of things.
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.
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.
1. Bedroom - This is a natural place where you can find a chest of drawers. This is where you can keep your intimates, or what others call the underwear. You can also use this as extra cabinet space for your socks, shirts and pajamas.
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.
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.
