Dresser. Thursday , January 11th , 2018 - 11:58:13 AM
Regency, Victorian and Edwardian dressers for bedroom are all made of wood with a quality French polish on the front. The back was usually left unvarnished. Often the drawers would have locks. Today, dressers come in a wide variety of materials including the modern favourite MDF - micro density fibreboard - with a woodstain veneer on the top and sides. This hardwearing easy care engineered wood product can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes. 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.
There are a variety of types of bedroom furniture dressers available on the market. The one you choose for your room may be based on your needs, as well as your budget. If you have a history with woodworking, you may want to consider building your own dresser. The advantages of dressers are many, the main thing is that they will allow you to have a piece of furniture that will allow you to effectively store your clothing and other items. A particularly popular dresser is the long dresser. These are larger in width than in height, and typically offer 2-3 drawers on each side. This is beneficial if you and your spouse will be sharing drawer space. Another popular style is the tall bedroom furniture dressers, also known as a chest of drawers (these are slimmer in width). They can offer 4-6 drawers, all stacked on top of each other.
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. 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.
