Chest of Drawers

Chest of Drawers offer beautiful accents to a room. Selected wood tones such as mahogany, walnut or satinwood will add a note of comfort to your home. These darker tones provide a nice counterpoint to lighter hued walls, fabric and upholstery while lending a touch of sophistication to a space. More contemporary chests in white or metal also add great interest to a room.

I love the look of a three-drawer chest, but everywhere I look they are either super expensive, and the affordable ones aren't much to look at (what Ikea offers, at least). Any suggestions on where to find chic and affordable?

Great collection of images! I love the idea of using a chest in the bathroom. So pretty!

That first vignette is so perfect - I feel I can never quite achieve the "just so" collection {sigh}

I love using these- they offer such great storage for apartment dwellers like myself.

What a ea collection. Ilove the walnut chest in the photo with the sofa and orange pillows... and the mirrored one that looks like a trunk.

I love adding a chest to a room and you have certainly chosen some gorgeous examples. I'm not much on ultra modern but could mix a piece in every once in a while. Great post!

I love this post. I've been looking for a chest for my living room, but I haven't found one yet. Thanks for the inspiration!

That mirrored one with the sunburst is super! These are all great uses for big old chests. I have a brown one that I was thinking of painting but looking at these makes me want to keep it brown!

Great inspiration! I like the variety you've chosen. the black and white bathroom is pretty and I love the whole silver 3 drawer chest vignette. Have a good weekend!

I love the idea of chests in rooms besides the bedroom.

I'd be happy with any of these! They sure would beat the cardboard box that's currently at one end of my sofa :)

I love these fresh inspiration images.

I have a vintage mahogany dresser and I want to go restyle it after looking at these beauties!
