Dressers to impress
Create impact with a Contemporary take
on a Classic Design. A dresser for the kitchen or dining room can be a wonderful statement piece, and adds style and practicality. traditional country styles consist of drawers or cupboards at the bottom and display space at the top, and are ideal for adding authentic charm to a kitchen. ‘Dressers are having a resurgence and are a versatile piece for the kitchen,’ says loaf founder Charlie marshall. ‘they’re ideal for stacking and displaying crockery and linens, as well as storing baking ingredients and food that needs a cool, dry home.’ Weighty in design, they can be overbearing in smaller rooms, so look for modern updates with slender proportions and cleaner lines.
go bespoke and have a Cabinet Custom built. For old properties with nooks and crannies, a madeto-measure dresser or cabinet will fully maximise the storage potential of a room. It is also a great way of adding a sense of unique style to your home, in the same way as sourcing an antique cabinet would.
Helen Parker, Creative Director at devol, explains:
‘If you are struggling to find a characterful, sturdy piece of the correct size, or if you have vintage pieces but want something very specific that’s suited exactly to your requirements, bespoke is a great idea.’
introduce glamour with opulent styling Details and unusual materials. Dressers, sideboards and cabinets were traditionally made from country pine, lending rustic simplicity to cottage-style interiors. For rooms that are grander in style and proportion, source more eclectic pieces to add elegance. Ben thomas White, Head of Product at lombok, advises: ‘Country homes often have beautiful original detailing, such as high ceilings, ornate cornices or crown moulding. Draw attention to these features by selecting a tall dresser with elegant proportions and a distinctive finish such as lacquer.’
