Why Choose an Antique Chest of Drawers

At Vinterior we have a broad collection of antique chest of drawers to inspire the look of your bedroom. An antique chest of drawers is predominately made of wood and will be strong and durable in the face of repeated use. Whereas mid-century pieces veered towards the simple and clean aesthetic of the era, earlier chest of drawers were much more ornate in design.

The difference in drawer linings can often tell us a great deal regarding the year in which the pieces were created. If the bottom board has grains that run from front to back then that drawer was most likely made in the 18th century while ones that run from side to side represent a construction of the 17th century.

Handles remain one of the main parts of the chest of drawers where statement design elements could be added. Shape, material, colour, size – the handles are the part of the drawers seen first and most likely the part to remember. They were generally designed according to prevailing trends to ensure the drawers reflected the fashions of the era. Not all antique chest of drawers will feature the original handles. Repurposed or restored pieces may require some updating where the handles are concerned and if there are unused holes beneath the handle this does sometimes imply that the handle has been changed.

Adding an antique chest of drawers in your bedroom can change the entire outlook of the room. While the different drawers can be used for functional purposes such as storing your valuables and clothing, placing a bedside lamp and a flower vase on the top surface of the drawers can add a touch of glam to your bedroom to create the illusion of a bigger space.
