Lingerie chests are unique in their design. These types of storage units are slender and rise notably higher than more standard or traditional storage chests. As a consequence, these narrow chests can fit nicely into a room in which there is limited floorspace. They simply take up a far smaller amount of horizontal space than most other types of storage chests on the market today.
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.
Pennsylvania was the area where many German immigrants chose to live. These immigrants were known as the Pennsylvania Dutch and their communities consisted of the Amish and the Mennonites, the plain people, and the Lutherans, along with other reformed religious groups, the fancy people. These groups of people had very skilled wood craftsmen who made wonderful furniture pieces such as the blanket chest, also known as the hope chest.
This particular style of chest of drawers is constructed on legs. Because of this design technique, there ends up being additional space below the chest of drawers itself that otherwise would have gone to waste.
