You have wardrobes possibly a blanket chest and maybe under-bed storage but you still need that little bit extra to store well your underwear. We don`t hang our underwear or at least I don`t! We do however need somewhere to store underwear and other small items in our bedrooms. A chest of drawers is ideal as storage for all those smaller things that would get lost in our wardrobes or other storage areas. As a solution for keeping things safe and at hand a chest of drawers is hard to beat.
In the kitchen dining room and living room most drawers that are in use are from a sideboard or dresser however with such a huge choice of chests drawers now available there are many that are suitable for these rooms. A chest could be used to store place mats cutlery instruction manuals or recipe books. Contemporary designers are now building modern and often quite funky chest suitable for any room of the house. Some of the designs seen include stacking the drawers at an odd angle and incorporating bright colours so that the chest becomes a stand out piece of furniture. Even with the various quirks each chest remains a functional piece of home furniture.
A great alternative for your bedroom or living room is a beautifully restored mahogany drawer originating from England (with serpentine drawers) which uses original French style hardware. An antique French chest of drawers will perfectly complement a hand carved Louis XV-inspired rattan bed in a lady`s room. Such pieces may be seen in all their splendor in online furniture stores or auction sites offering rare collectible or hard-to-find furniture items.
