Magnolia. Dressers. October 07th , 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.
Most of the people generally assume that cheap dressers means that the material used in the dresser is not of good quality but this is only a misconception among people as there are they are the same dressers designed by well known manufacturers but they have cheap prices because they might either have a great discount on them or there must be a sale hosted. The dressers typically designed with two to three columns which makes them shorter than chests which end at waist height. It is advisable that you should either buy the discount dresser or the chest. These discount dressers generally come from well known manufactures namely Ashley, Fairmount Designs, and Vaughan Bassett and so you can ensure it to be of great quality.
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 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.
They are just as beautiful as they are functional, and an artisan can build a variety of unique handmade dressers by using a mixed bag of designs and fashions that were in style over the course of hundreds of years and making them popular still today. Modern handmade bedroom style dressers usually combine styles, as you can see in the Queen Anne, Shaker and Mission styles, to match the theme of the matching bedroom set. Other styles of dressers frequently highlight a mixture of natural woods to highlight the outer frame of the design of the piece of furniture to make a beautiful splash that can go in any style of dining room.
