Lamontagne. Dressers. October 01st , 2017.
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.
Shabby chic dressers and sideboards make a fantastic addition to any style kitchen, contemporary or vintage. The shabby chic style seems to have become very popular recently, as many home and design magazines feature this style regularly, and interior designers on TV are all using it for home makeovers! If you like this style of furniture its a great way to add some originality and individuality to your home, as most shabby chic dressers that you can buy are re-used or up-cycled from antiques or second-hand dressers. Dressers were first popular in the seventeenth century in Europe and during this period furniture was handcrafted and generally well-made. Antique or vintage furniture was usually built to last and to be hard-wearing. It is only in recent years that we have become a nation of flat-pack-loving consumers!
Its really important that when youre shopping for a dresser that you know the look that you would like for your dresser to have. What specific style dresser would fit in best with your room? What is the overall decor that youre trying to achieve in your bedroom? There are a lot of beautiful dressers available to choose from but if you dont choose one that works with the look of your room, it will end up looking like it doesnt belong in there. For example, if your room has a modern feel choose a dresser with modern elements. If your room is more shabby chic, you dresser should be also.
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.
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.
