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.
Wood workers and furniture manufacturers in Japan and Denmark have especially found Shaker furniture to be of interest. Many of their artisans have employed the Shaker design elements to create wonderful furniture pieces. The Shaker style has also heavily influenced the modern furniture design principles in both of these countries.
Another nice feature of the chest of drawers is the fact that they are lightweight. On your own you actually will be able to position and then reposition the chest of drawers wherever you might desire from time to time. Like many people, you desire to make adjustments and changes to the layout of the furnishings in your home, including in your bedroom. Once again, you do not need to engage assistance in order to redo furniture your arrangements.
Blanket chests may not be considered a necessary piece of furniture to many in this day and age, but they were extremely necessary to families of the past eras. Many young women were given dowry chests to fill with necessary household items. They crafted quilts, blankets, crocheted items, baby clothes and bed linens to name a few. On their wedding day, these blanket chests were proudly placed on the wedding wagon for the newly weds to take to their home. Other young women did not receive a hope chest until their wedding day, but the chests were still filled with the many needed items to run a household.
