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.
The oldest and most traditional forms of dressers are usually smaller, and are used to keep smaller articles and clothing in order. Most of these dressers are used to keep underwear, socks and other trinkets and items like jewelry. Today, many newer designs are larger and have more storage space than usual. These dressers have more drawers and more storage space. Furthermore, many craftsmen are now making dressers with more intricate designs and aesthetic quality and so dressers are valued not just because of their functionality but because of their design value as well. The purposes of your traditional dresser have now been expanded. There are many makes and designs of dressers that are now on sale in the market. Some are already made and ready for pick-up, while some offer personalization services. If you have specific preferences for your dresser, you can now talk to the craftsman and tell him how you want your dresser made. But what designs of dressers are there available that would suit your budget, preferences on design and of course, functionality?
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.
