Solid Wood Dressers and Chests of Drawers

Solid Wood Dressers and Chests of Drawers

Perfect for your bedroom or for storage in other rooms of the home, solid wood dressers and chests of drawers are most commonly used to store clothing and textiles, but are easily used to store other items as well. Many chests or dressers are versatile enough to be used as toy storage in a child’s room, as a media console in a living room or as a simple bureau in a bedroom. Shop different types of solid wood options to easily match your existing furniture.


Commonly used in bedrooms, dressers are an excellent way to store clothing. Store sweatshirts, jeans, underclothes and more in dressers with differently sized drawers for different clothing options. With finishes in walnut, cherry, mahogany and other wood options, you can complete a rustic theme in your room or opt for a more modern or contemporary look.

Chests of Drawers

While a dresser is usually short in length and tall in height, a chest of drawers may be the exact opposite. A chest may be long in length and short in height, allowing it to be versatile enough for use as a credenza, a buffet in a dining room or as a toy chest. Similarly to dressers, chests will have different finishes and constructions, allowing you to match them with your existing suite. If you’re using a chest in a room other than a bedroom, look for drawers and cabinets to provide ample storage space.

Vintage Styles

Vintage and rustic dressers and chests provide an authentic, shabby-chic feel. In fact, with these type of dressers, you may want to avoid any finish at all, and select an option that is unfinished wood. Because of its use inside, the wood will retain its natural colour over time. Rustic options may not be necessarily vintage as there are newer options made to look primitive that you may find aesthetically pleasing for your living space.

Modern and Contemporary Styles

Solid wood contemporary dressers and chests of drawers are exceedingly popular. Look for current styles that blend in seamlessly with your existing furniture, or opt for a mid-century or modern look for a more retro, angular feel. More modern furniture may have bright finishes for an eclectic look, such as finishes in black, red or other bright colours.
