Pierrette Segal. Chest. May 13th , 2017.
one of the great furniture making traditions of the world belongs to the Shakers. Their philosophy of a simple life filled with honest work is reflected in their furniture, which is some of the most highly sought after in the world. And with good reason: Shakers take care to select quality hardwoods that are not only structurally superior, but also beautiful. Thus, they are able to produce furniture that features beautiful grain and flawless woodwork. Structurally, Shaker furniture sticks to joinery that is tried and true in terms of strength. This means mainly mortise and tenon in members to be joined and chest drawers that are joined by dovetails. Shaker furniture also features clean lines and simple design that fits in with today`s sensibilities.
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.
The junk drawer can appear in any of the above mentioned types of chest whether it is in the kitchen or bedroom you will often find the same types of items in them from household to household. These may include half used boxes of matches, safety pins, homemade gifts or cards from the kids, pens that no longer work and a deck of playing cards. If none of this sounds familiar you are a much organised person.
You may think you have plenty of storage space in your bedroom, but take a look in the wardrobe for example. Do you have items, folded in there such as t-shirts? Maybe you fold your heavier items like denims. Well you can free up space in your wardrobe by having a chest of drawers in your room. Many people need more hanging space for dress clothes, so storing some clothes in a set of drawers will free up that essential space for you. You can also store things like belts, and jewelery in the drawers as you can get draw dividers for just such a purpose.
Oak dressers are appealing in appearance. There are different types of dressers available in the market such as drawer dressers and door dressers. The smaller ones are called drawer dressers and largest as door dressers because they have door in the center. Oak dressers are always strong and have much longer life as compared to others, which are made of woods not as superior as oak. Such kind of dressers suits large families as number of people using it is more. There is no doubt that oak dressers are expensive given the kind of quality it brings to the furniture. If you get something that is not the value of oak, no need to buy it. There are people outside who are in search to make quick profit by making wrong commitments. So, oak dressers and other dressers are quite different.
