Dressers. Friday , October 06th , 2017 - 11:10:55 AM
The dresser for the bedroom as an essential piece of furniture has been much in demand for centuries. Traditionally, a gentlemans dresser for his bedroom was made of oak or mahogany, usually with two top drawers for stockings, gloves, cravats handkerchiefs and other accouterments. On the top would be placed lace covers and a mirror, that should ideally match the wood of the dresser. The remaining three drawers would be single and capacious enough to carry shirts, woollens and breeches.Ladies dressers for bedroom were normally made of cherry or walnut and often featured only single drawers. The defining feature of a ladies dresser is the larger bottom drawer which was specifically designed for her to store linens and fine clothes for the day she became wed.
Dressers are furniture that is usually found in the bedroom. These pieces of furniture are usually fitted with drawers that parallel one another. The number of drawers that dressers contain depends on its size as some may have as much as 8 drawers. These pieces of furniture usually are used for keeping clothing articles and other items organized, but other uses can be brought to mind depending on the design and size of the dresser.Dressers can come in different shapes and forms, and this ultimately determines what to use it for and how to place it inside the bedroom.
Second-hand dressers and sideboards can also be painted in any colour of your choice to match your kitchen or home interior, and make them even more unique to you. Once they have been painted you can distress them by sanding to make them really shabby chic in style. People often refer to French farmhouse style or English country cottage style dressers but there are many different styles of antique dressers out there, from many periods and many different areas of Europe. French-style shabby chic dressers tend to be very decorative and elaborate, whereas English country cottage dressers are plainer and often heavier in appearance. Whichever style you prefer the choice is endless, as there are very few antique dressers the same out there. Each one differs slightly due to being hand-made rather than mass-produced in the way that reproductions are.
