Gaetane. Dressers. October 04th , 2017.
Before buying a dresser, ensure that you have the measurements of the area you need to place the dresser in. Make a note of the height, depth and width. Also, if you want to keep the dresser in the corner of a wall, then make sure there is enough space for the doors to open. Check the product descriptions closely and check if the dresser can fit in the given size range.You must think about how you are going to use the dresser every day. Think of the smaller details as to how you would keep your clothes, shoes, accessories and other things that you would prefer storing in your dresser. If you are short of hanging space, then you can keep your folded clothes in the deep dresser. Some would prefer dressers with small drawers where they would help store lingerie, hosiery, make-up and other bathroom essentials.
The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. The body of the dresser, or the carcass, is held together with dovetail joints that add an element of design as well as making it extremely strong. Other dressers employ frame and panel construction that is highlighted by mortise and tenon joinery that is accented with wooden pins. Combining both techniques for any style of handmade dresser is what makes the carcass durable and the drawers move in and out smoothly.
Another style of handmade dressers that is still popular today is the Shaker style. Originating in the late 1700s, the Shaker style is revered for its clean lines, durable features and innovative joinery methods. Distinctive features include an arched apron and tapered legs, which looks graceful and unimposing. Originally minimal in embellishments, artisans today will play with the tradition by adding modern touches, like blending types of wood in the paneling. Contrasting natural woods, like maple and walnut, a craftsman can really highlight the beauty of the panel doors and drawers. Intentionally practical, these sideboard Shaker style dressers are perfect for storing dining room china, but the pieces of furniture are elegant enough on their own.
The Queen Anne style of furniture is historically made from walnut, which is definitely a Colonial American tradition. Handmade dressers today are made from all kinds of wood, like butternut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Like walnut, butternut wood is prized for its soft, light yellow highlights and darker grains. In order to create a more contemporary look for a dresser, an artisan will blend different woods together. Making hardwood knobs out of different woods and materials is an easy way to give any traditional style of furniture a unique look. Darker dovetail details on the top of the dresser or on the paneling also brings a simple accent of elegance to an otherwise simple dresser. Studio furniture designers enjoy the freedom to play with combinations of knobs, joinery methods and natural woods to satisfy each and every clients personality and style.
