Studio craftsmen make Shaker style sideboards look more contemporary by taking different types of natural wood and using the contrasting colors to distinguish subtle features of the piece of furniture. Darker wood might be used to make the knobs stand out, and glass paneling can even be used for the doors, which was not previously done. Studio craftsmen create handmade dressers that are very different than mass-produced dressers because artisans are free to design and build dressers that are unique and special for each and every client. Mass produced dressers cant be that special because they need to appeal to a wider variety of tastes. Working directly with a craftsman will let you create something together that speaks to your specific interests and style.
