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.
You can tell a lot about the personality & character of the owners of a house by the furniture pieces they choose. When it comes to living room accents, for example, there are pieces that radiate glamour that speak volumes about the taste and interests of the occupants of the house. Take for instance a chest of drawers with convex bow front design and stylized tassel-motif hardware with tapered legs. The person who purchased such a living room accent can surely appreciate beauty and style. On the other hand, individuals who are passionate about art and have eclectic tastes may opt for a maple highboy reminiscent of the Chippendale era or a Greek revival style of chest. A bow front chest of drawers in lustrous mahogany that captures the grandeur of the 18th century master craftsmen is a perfect option for a woman with an eye for superb detailing. Itll also add a look of timeless elegance to a contemporary living room. With a low rectangular coffee table and pediment mirror of similar material in the same room, the look can be fabulous.
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.
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.
The Chest of Drawers is one of the most popular pieces of furniture, being able to store all manner of things.
Just because there are children or grandchildren in the house does not mean there has to be an unsightly toy box in amongst the carefully chosen furniture. Incorporating a toy chest of drawers into the room will keep the toys neat and orderly (even if it is the adults who end up putting them away) and easy to find when the search begins for that favourite toy. Many chests are designed with very deep drawers, in particular at the bottom of the chest ideal for toys and games, with varying depths of drawers as you move up the chest the top level drawers could be used for crayons and paper.
