From storage to style, a chest of drawers has evolved itself. Most of the chests are of waist height having three to five drawers. Its top surface is made flat so that it can also be used as a table for keeping a flower vase, jewellery box, photo frame, etc. While they come in various options, selection completely depends on the preferences of the person buying it. A chest of drawers also comes with an option of choosing drawers. You can buy a chest with two, three, four or as many drawers you want. You can also get a chest customised as per your requirements. Either shape, size, material or the number of drawers, you can get it done easily.Handcrafted Blanket Chests

A size that fits the space and fulfils your storage requirement must be selected. Also, one must not forget the doors and entry ways. A chest of drawer must be placed in such a way that the door and drawers do not collide while opening as this would damage the finish and cause scratches on both the entry door and surface of the drawers. Also, make sure that chest is kept away from any heat or water source as both water and heat reduces the life of the wooden furniture.

Many of the blanket chests crafted in Pennsylvania by German immigrants were artfully inlaid with leaf and floral designs flowing out from vases. The vases would have been created out of one of the additional materials.Sulfur inlay was also used to create string inlay and inlaid keyhole escutcheon in geometric patterns as an additional design element. This inlay was very fine in detail so that all of the designs created were very sophisticated in appearance.
