The history of antique chests of drawers

Fancy a history lesson? Keep reading.

Antique chests of drawers have transformed dramatically over the centuries thanks to better tools, skilled cabinet makers, and wealthier customers resulting in greater demand.

The earliest type of antique chest was simply a box with a lid, known as the coffer. This is the earliest type of antique furniture on record. And dates back to the 13th century.

It wasn’t until the mid-18th-century that antique chests were produced with décor and styling in mind. Pieces were crafted in different shapes, with the serpentine front and the bow fronted chest emerging in the 1770s. These pieces are rare but durable. And they’ll fit beautifully in almost any home with an antique theme.

As you can imagine, with time, style and décor became more and more important as antique chests of drawers were designed for homes and businesses around the world.

Our expansive collection boasts pieces dating as far back as the 1600s, so you can go for a style as antique or as contemporary as you like. Choose from Victorian pine circa the 1800s, or go even further back in time with a baroque piece from the 1700s.
