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.’
