The modern chest of drawers: a closer look

There are several different styles of modern chest of drawers to choose from. Before you start looking, first give some thought to the rough style, shape and size you need. This will depend on the purpose for which you need the drawers: do you need a large all-in-one storage solution for your clothes, or a smaller piece for a guest room or placing in a hallway? How many drawers are you looking for? And what sorts of materials do you feel will work well with the look of your interior?

Mid-century modern chests of drawers are one of the most popular routes to go down when looking for a piece that is both rich in character and at the same time works well with contemporary themes. The freshness and minimalist vibe of mid-century furniture was born out of necessity: both for practical reasons (the elaborate ornamentation of earlier design movements was no longer appropriate for the modern home) and because the availability of various industrial materials had changed since World War II.

Clean lines and functionality are fundamental to the modern chest of drawers. Look for perfect symmetry and high quality yet simple materials such as treated walnut, teak and oak, with polished and painted wood detail. Much of the mid-century furniture you will find here at Vinterior takes its inspiration from the Danish modern movement, which was focused as much on the needs of the user as on the aesthetic appeal of each piece.
