In order to match your bedroom furniture, attempt to purchase your chest of drawers from the same furniture company or from the same line of furniture. Otherwise, you will have to match your existing furniture to the available selection of chest of drawers. To be certain, shop at retail stores that offer floor models of their furniture purchases.
An antique chest of drawers will spruce up any room. Some people even place them in living rooms. This is an unorthodox practice, however, it adds to the allure and essence of the furniture. With any chest drawer, proper placement is essential. You need to place the drawer in a good location. The location should be away from direct sunlight, which tends to stain and warp the wood. This, however, occurs over the years. In addition to sunlight, normal wear and tear can devalue your antique. It is recommended to clean, dust and apply a good cleaning solution to your drawer. This will preserve its life, while giving you years of great use. If you are not sure, simply ask an antique furniture specialist for advice. He or she will furnish pertinent details, especially on how to maintain your antique chest.
The way that a chest of drawers first came about was back in medieval times and Europe. How it was designed was just a box that sat on the floor. Over time someone added a drawer to the bottom and now here we are. It is sometimes common for many homeowners to have an older set of Oak chest of drawers that has been handed down from generation to generation. The reason that this is possible is because the oak is such a strong wood that will last for years if it is properly cared for.
A great alternative for your bedroom or living room is a beautifully restored mahogany drawer originating from England (with serpentine drawers) which uses original French style hardware. An antique French chest of drawers will perfectly complement a hand carved Louis XV-inspired rattan bed in a lady`s room. Such pieces may be seen in all their splendor in online furniture stores or auction sites offering rare, collectible, or hard-to-find furniture items.
You have to be careful in selection of type of wood for your chest of drawers so that it is in a perfect match with the other furniture of your room where this piece of furniture is to be placed. You may decide about the number and types of drawers according to your need and convenience. Normally, people prefer a furniture chest of drawers with three large and two small drawers. The top of the chest drawers may be used to place a lamp, flower vase or any other decorative piece to enhance the beauty and elegance of your room.
