I used to think that the place where you would find a chest of drawers was the bedroom. A great piece of furniture to keep clothes tidy and dust free. It was always socks and underwear in the two smaller drawers and tops and jumpers etc. folded up and placed in the larger ones. Why was it that whatever you wanted to wear on any particular day was always at the bottom of the pile?
Now, with a variety of materials and colours available, this versatile piece of furniture can have more of a starring role in other rooms in the home. These three beautiful chests from Graham & Green,hand carved in the French style are proof of this. They are real show offs!
My favourite of these is the Antonia Mother of Pearl Inlay Chest of Drawers in White. I would like to see it against a pale grey background to see if it stands out even more! What do you think? The Matisse Chest of Drawers has such a gentle wavy style and lends itself to all sorts of decorative accessories that could quite easily be changed with the seasons. In contrast you couldn’t fail to notice the striking bone inlay of the Antonia Bone Inlay Chest of Drawers in Emerald. This would make a beautiful splash of colour in any plain white room.
No longer placed in a corner with a few ornaments on top, the chest of drawers can be the statement piece of any room.
