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.
There has been a lot of confusion about the make-up of this material, its composition, methods of manufacture and the source of their color since then. Some of these inlays were found to be a type of allotrope of sulfur in 1977. Some years later another inlay type was found on eighteenth-century hope chest furniture,also ivory-colored, that did not contain sulfur.

Storage space is at a premium in most homes, and often residents are looking for storage facilities that will not look out of place in a room, yet managing to enclose within them many items which need to be put away. Storage trunks and chests are perennial favourites among families, since they look good and are very versatile. A beautiful wooden storage chest in the living room can also become an improvised sitting place, with bolsters and cushions and a matching throw cover on it. A light colour storage chest can brighten up any dark room, and an antique look storage trunk with brass handles and locks can become the focal point of a simple room.
