Lamontagne. Dressers. October 02nd , 2017.
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.
Dressers can be purchased within your budget. You can look for quality pre-owned, vintage or antique items in garage sale or thrift stores, garage sales and estate sales. If youre purchasing a dresser made of less expensive wood like pine, check whether it has been treated to prevent rot and damage. When going through online biddings, pay close attention to product descriptions, photos with clear details, shipment terms and shipping fees. Also, reading product reviews before buying a dresser can help you determine whether the product is genuine and if a particular seller is reliable.
Most baby dressers come as part of a nursery furniture set in all designs and sizes. Choose a dresser with smooth rounded edges to keep your baby or toddler safe. Hand carved and hand painted dressers provide a unique personalized touch. Also, a dresser with more utility drawers is preferable because it can store more items. Make sure the drawers are easy to open and close. A growing trend today is to purchase a dresser combined with another piece of nursery furniture. One unusual set is the combination baby bath and dresser set. A baby bath tub fits on top of the dresser, making it easy to give baby a bath. Another popular combination is the baby changing dresser that has a changing table on top of the dresser.
The Swedish firm Ikea has specialised in supplying such dressers for the bedroom in low cost flat pack format for self assembly at home. In days of old you would have to struggle up the stairs with the weighty pre crafted dresser. The emphasis for modern dressers is to de-clutter bedrooms and create a harmonious themed design scheme within the bedroom, and often, bedroom units, including the wardrobe, overhead cupboards, dressing table and dresser will be made with one design theme and one colour so that everything is colour co-ordinated. Many newer dressers for bedroom have more storage space than dressers of old. Modern dressers still feature mirrors but they are usually placed as "vanity stations" with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. The spacious work tops of modern dressers are designed for keeping cosmetics and other trinkets on them without appearing messy or cluttered.
Among the many styles of handmade wooden furniture that are still favored today is the Queen Anne style. The Queen Anne style of handmade wooden furniture was first made popular in America between 1720 to 1760 and can be distinguished from other styles by the signature cyma, or S-curve, that is seen in the feet of a dresser or chair, and may also be worked into other parts of a piece of furniture. These S-curves blend well with modern styles of decorating by softening the look of a heavy piece of furniture with the gentle curves.
