one of the great furniture making traditions of the world belongs to the Shakers. Their philosophy of a simple life filled with honest work is reflected in their furniture, which is some of the most highly sought after in the world. And with good reason: Shakers take care to select quality hardwoods that are not only structurally superior, but also beautiful. Thus, they are able to produce furniture that features beautiful grain and flawless woodwork. Structurally, Shaker furniture sticks to joinery that is tried and true in terms of strength. This means mainly mortise and tenon in members to be joined and chest drawers that are joined by dovetails. Shaker furniture also features clean lines and simple design that fits in with today`s sensibilities.
A neat and tidy room, apart from looking beautiful, reflects the personality of the owner. If the room is set neatly and arranged properly, the owner is considered to be an able and organized person. In every household, there are small articles that are used frequently but storing of these items is often difficult. Such articles include handkerchiefs, scarves, lingerie, socks, nail-cutters and so on. As a result, these items are scattered everywhere giving the room a chaotic and sometimes dirty look.
An ideal chest of drawers contains about six or seven drawers and is waist-high with a mirror fitted on its top. To make it convenient for ladies to apply make-up, several chests of drawers are equipped with small bulbs on the border of mirror. The most important thing before buying a drawers` chest is to check the quality of wood out of which it has been produced. Generally, pine, cider, and oak woods are used to make these furniture articles. It is easy to store small items in these drawers and even easier to locate them in the time of need. Depending on the room size, one can buy either a long or sleek cabinet containing several small drawers or opt for a conventional version having a standard width with three to five drawers.
If it does sound familiar there is a strong chance you have no idea what is currently in your "junk drawer" but you know they are items you simply cannot throw away. Having worked for a furniture company in past life we once had a chest returned and replaced due to some damage only to discover the customer had not emptied out their junk drawer before returning it. When the customer was informed it was decided we had no other choice but to box up the contents of the drawer and return them as they simply could not recall what was in there and if it was important.
In order to keep your drawers opening and closing smoothly, runners are required. Drawer runners are mounted on both sides of the drawers to add this support, so be sure that the type of runners that are included are made of quality material and design. Lastly, veneers are an feature to consider when purchasing your chest of drawers. A veneer is a protective coating of superior wood that is glued onto a base of inferior wood. Veneers add an additional look of elegance and quality in workmanship. With so many choices available, many people find that a chest of drawers can be used as living room furniture, where toys, games and blankets can be stored. Or, choose to purchase a chest of drawers for dining room furniture, storing table linens and extra silverware.
