Tips for Getting the Best from Vintage Chests of drawers
We all want to get the most out of what we buy, and mid century chests of drawers are no exception. However, you can do a few things before you purchase one to make them work for you. Here are some tips:
- Always measure the space where you plan to place your teak or walnut chest of drawers. Think about whether you’d like drawers that are wide and low or a tall set of drawers with a smaller footprint.
- Match it with pieces you already have in your home. Are there other mid century pieces in the room or are you going for the eclectic look with furniture and lighting from different design periods?
- Consider how many drawers you’d like the piece to have and whether the drawers need to be particularly wide or deep. How you plan to use your mid century chest of drawers will influence which one you select.
- Consider colour tone, wood type and grain patterns. An amber toned teak chest of drawers, rich reddish brown rosewood or warm, stunning walnut. Think about how the piece will sit with other items that you already have in your room.
- Buy from an informed dealer. An expert who has carefully curated a selection of options for you. Learn from the retailer – the features of each piece and the design history. Try and purchase from someone who loves what they do.
If you take the time to consider all these things, you can greatly increase your chances of getting a super vintage chest of drawers that will last for many years.
