During the mid 19th Century, manufactures in Denmark decided to make affordable,attractive furniture which would have a world wide market.The striped down style of Shaker furniture lent itself well to being manufactured, so many of the furniture prototypes were of the Shaker design and influence. This endeavor has proven to be very successful.
Cedar is a wood type which has gained great popularity for the creating of hope chests in more recent times. Cedar is a wood with a huge variance in color, going from a light tan to a brownish red. This gives furniture pieces a 'comfortable' look. Of course the wonderful smell of cedar is also an added attraction. Many wood workers choose to line their hope chests with a thin layer of Cedar, or at least add a layer to the bottoms. The wonderful cedar smell can be rejuvenated by gentle sanding with 200 grit sand paper.
Hope chest furniture can be used as coffee tables, side boards, entryway sideboards, end tables, buffet tables and as an extra cozy seating area. The extra storage that they provide is a plus since many people reside in smaller living areas than what they would prefer. Added to their ability to double as a storage unit along the top area used as a much needed space, blanket chests give every home warmth and a welcoming atmosphere with styling dating back to the 1700's and 1800's. This 'ageless' styling in a huge reason that blanket storage chests retain their standing as one of the most favored types of furniture.
