Dresser. Thursday , January 11th , 2018 - 12:35:41 PM
It is important that you get a bedroom dresser that will match the rest of your bedroom decor. Purchasing your furniture in a set will ensure that you have matching colors for the bed frame, night stands, dresser, and armoire. If you choose to make your own or buy each piece separately, be sure to get the same shades of wood. For example, you would not want to purchase a cherry dresser to go with an oak bed. Likewise, you want to make sure that each are made with a similar design and materials. It can be a good idea to build your own bedroom dresser. This will allow you to have one that will be most beneficial to you. Money can also be saved by constructing your own furniture. Consider the purposes you want your dresser to have. Determine how much clothing you wish to fold and place into the piece of furniture. Do you want to store all foldable clothing in the dresser, or just undergarments, socks, and pajamas? The amount of items you want to put inside a dresser will help decide what shape to give the piece.
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.
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.
