What is a dresser and why do I need an antique one?

A dresser isn’t a term that’s often used for modern furniture yet these antique pieces remain extremely sought after. Strong, sturdy and functional, dressers provide a solution to those tricky storage problems with a combination of vertical spaces, cupboards and drawers.

Dressers can be found in kitchen and lounge areas, as well as within the bedroom. Although they are all classed as dressers, the type found in bedrooms are typically smaller and more highly decorated.

Originally only found in the homes of the rich and wealthy, dressers still retain that air of sophistication today. Made from high-quality materials and built to last, an antique dresser can act as a focal point in any room, adding an extra dimension to your decor.

We’ve got a great range of dressers here at Vinterior, including some spectacular examples of antique French dressers.

The different styles of antique French dresser

The French are renowned for their exquisite sense of style and this is reflected in the stunning design of antique French dressers. Still adhering to the general principles of functional storage, French dressers are something rather special.

Although available in a diverse range of sizes and styles, every French dresser has something in common: sublime design and ornate decoration. It’s this particular type of embellishment and overall appearance that makes antique French dressers the very epitome of elegance.

French dressers are particularly well suited to the boudoir because of their intricate design and more ornate appearance. These are normally smaller overall and rather than having a cupboard or vertical space offer a series of drawers. Look out for features such as curved or cabriole legs; this adds a delicacy to the overall design which works perfectly in a bedroom or dressing area. Use as an elegant chest of drawers or else place next to your bed for a classy bedside table.

Elsewhere in the home, dressers can be used as hallway storage and table and accessorised with a lamp. In the dining room a dresser is ideal for storing linen and cutlery, offering a little dash of timeless French style.

Antique French dressers complement a classic decor, with features such as inlaid wood, ornate carvings and other surface designs. Polished and immaculate, antique French dressers are refined and high class, creating an instant ambience in any room they grace.
