Danish wood workers began constructing furniture with the Shaker style influence at the turn of the last Century. It started when one rocking chair caught the interest of an architect by the name of Kaare Klint. Klint was one of the main influences in Scandinavian modern design. The Shakers had started exporting their furniture during the last 19th Century, so this ladder backed rocking chair had found its way to Denmark.This chair was not identified as being of Shaker style for many years. It was thought to be just Early American in design. This Shaker ladder backed rocking chair was initially used as a teaching aide by Klint.
Another option is the sometimes quirky mule chest. The mule chest has no standard set-up, really, but it is often defined by a small square storage area with a door instead of a drawer. This door area can be set in the middle of the piece or in one of the upper corners. This set-up leads to the piece having a few different sized drawers and gives it a bit of an antique or hand-crafted look. Mule chests are usually larger than standard chests and many can work in the living room as well as the bedroom.
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.
5.Style of the drawer: The style of the chest of drawers should match perfectly with the existing room dcor. To attain this requirement, you need to look for the design of the drawer that matches well with your other furnishings. For example, an oak chest of drawers may complement well with the contemporary dcor, while a wooden chest of drawers can elevate the look of a traditional room.
