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.
Some of the finest chest creations were fashioned by British cabinet makers that include Thomas Chippendale. Today, you`d find elaborate bombe chest of drawers reminiscent of the 1700s era, or magnificent chests during the reign of Louis XV and XVI. Bombe chests have elegant curved lines, shapely contours. They are perfect for most furniture buyers who want the stylish period look that can fit well even in compact dining room or entertaining areas or a guest room. For a girl`s room, a modern chest of drawers in pink and black can look thoroughly modern and can inspire fresh, imaginative ideas and create a feel-good aura.
The final point is that of the handles. Never be put off a piece of furniture because of the fittings used for the knobs as these can, in most cases, be changed with relative ease to something more desirable. Just remember to shop around in order to find the top bargains and when ordering online make sure you only go through merchants you know you can trust.
