Yolette. Dressers. October 10th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
