If you are running out of storage space and want an affordable solution, a chest of drawers is perfect. Easy to access with a lot of organised and well-defined space, it can be used for storing bedside necessities or any other articles. It makes sure that you never have to throw any of the items due to space constraints.
Along with the sulfur inlay used in their beautiful designs, ivory, shell, contrasting colored wood and bone were additional materials placed into the wood chiseled incisions. 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.
Blanket chests with inlay designs are fewer than the more popular painted designs consisting mainly of hex designs. This is probably because creating the sulfur inlay style involves carving into the wood chests in a precise manner, which raises the difficulty factor.
Shaker Style furniture and hope chests are perceived by many to have a unique simple beauty in their design element. This is interesting since the Shaker community condemns creating beauty as a predetermined result.
