Even though society in many regions has discontinued the tradition of giving Dower Chests to their young daughters, beautifully constructed Hope Chests are still loving given as wedding presents or as a special gift.Shaker Style Hope Chests
Hope chest furniture can be used as coffee tables, side boards, entryway sideboards, end tables, buffet tables and as an extra cozy seating area. The extra storage that they provide is a plus since many people reside in smaller living areas than what they would prefer. Added to their ability to double as a storage unit along the top area used as a much needed space, blanket chests give every home warmth and a welcoming atmosphere with styling dating back to the 1700's and 1800's. This 'ageless' styling in a huge reason that blanket storage chests retain their standing as one of the most favored types of furniture.
The design styles, dimensions and construction types differ among these Hope Chests which shows that the craftsmen did not copy each others work. The foot design changes from Dower Chest to Dower Chest with a large variety of bracket feet, rounded ball feet or no feet at all. Some Hope Chests had two or three drawers along the bottom, while others had none. Many Blanket Chests had inlay designs or special painted designs.
The lingerie chest is a tall, narrow set of drawers that is ideal for an additional storage piece or for those who only require minimal storage. This piece commonly has seven small drawers stacked one on another, the seven drawers representing the days of the week. While the lingerie chest was designed to store undergarments and such, it can serve many other purposes as well. With its slender, space-saving design, the lingerie chest is ideal for rooms with limited space, such as dorm rooms and smaller bedrooms.
